Nearly every Sunday morning for seven years, I’ve checked the “Front Pages” at the Newseum to create this post. The Newseum closes at the end of the year, and I’ve been thinking about what that means the end of the Sunday sampler.
Because the Newseum is late loading this morning, I thought I’d see if I could shift to visiting each newspaper website to pick out stories that interested me. It would be a different type of sampler, but it could still be good. Two differences: It takes me much longer, and the stories featured on the websites are much different than the ones on the newspaper front pages. That makes sense, of course, as web readers and newspaper readers have different wants and needs.
Fortunately, none of that will be necessary because the Newseum will continue its featuring the days front pages for a while longer.
P.S. I didn’t see much on the front pages today.
