As an online video news source, msnbc.com has the enormous advantage of the resources of NBC, but opportunities exist for video news producers who focus on a niche areas and use low cost digital news gathering.

These are the comments of Charlie Tillinghast, president and publisher of msnbc.com.

We spoke on Sixth Avenue on Tuesday afternoon, just before we started our Beet.TV Online Video Roundable, which was hosted by Charlie at the msnbc.com Digital Cafe at 30 Rock. 

This is the first part of two interview segments with him.
