Newseum front pages

What a cool museum!  The Newseum offers visitors 250,000-square-feet  of news, combining information on 500 years of news history with technology and a variety of hands-on exhibits.

I haven’t been to the Newseum but take advantage of the Today’s Front Pages feature, specifically the map version.  You can scroll across the map (think globally) and click any of the golden dots, each of  which represent a different front page.

I have noticed that even when a paper is a daily, it may not always be present, but on the day that I wrote this I accessed the St. Loius Post-Dispatch, the El Paso Times, and The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.  Chicago was well represented with Daily Herald, Hoy, Red Eye and Sun-Times.

Check it out to get an idea of what topics have national vs local front page appeal and you may come away with some new story ideas!
