The front pages of today’s N.C. newspapers are filled with coronavirus stories. Yesterday, the News & Observer published 15 locally written stories about the virus. Paywalls have come down so that readers can get the latest news about the pandemic in their towns. (It’s counter-intuitive, and it reflects journalism’s public service committment.) Journalists are doing what they do: running toward the danger so they can tell you about it.
Now, during this public international crisis, you should stay informed. The best way to do that is to subscribe to your local newspaper. It will tell you what you how you should stay safe and how you can help others.
Here are some examples of the front pages today. Images courtesy of the Newseum.
