Can I send Images too?

Does it matter if there is NO audio is or it is poor quality?

If it’s newsworthy then it will sell. It really depends on the event. Exclusive grainy footage will still sell, but poor footage with no sound of a less significant event may not.

Does the media add graphics to my video or edit what I send?

News organization can add graphics and can edit your footage. They are would not be allowed to alter it factually. This would be against all ethics and remember we have the original imagery, as do you. So, in the event of any tampering this would be able to be proven.
