Can Flash make news more palatable?

One of my gripes against Flash is how slow it downloads even with broadband. The waiting is very frustrating and sometimes designers can be more enamoured with the look than the content. I especially hate the way Flash sometimes makes fonts look so crappy and jagged and just plain unreadable.

I am glad the guru of usability Jakob Nielsen agrees with me on this point [Flash 99% bad]

But here are two examples that blew me away by the simplicity of the idea of how music, combined with text, by Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries, or blocks, by Michal Levy, can convey a new perspective on how news could be presented in future.
