A look at newspaper front pages from around the country

When it’s not there

with one comment

On Sunday, the House passed the health reform, which was news everywhere.

Well, almost everywhere. There was loads of coverage on television and all over the Internet. Social media sites were buzzing all night with commentary on the subject.

However, one of the most interesting things to happen in the last 24 hours were the newspapers that did not have this story on the front page of their newspapers.

TheWrap.com went through all 406 newspaper front pages today and found that just 15 did not devote some type of coverage on the front page of their paper.

Of course this could be for a number of reasons and one beyond the newspaper’s control is deadline. If the paper was done before the story got out, well, can’t control that. But, there are instances like this when a deadline should be held just a little longer. By not getting this in the paper further proves how out-dated newspapers are becoming, which for obvious reasons makes me sad.

  1. Absolutely agreed. It’s not as if we didn’t pretty much have an exact schedule of when the vote was going to happen. I know that I prepared myself for a long night watching the course of events. Granted, there may have been financial concerns or some other reason to not extend the deadline or provide press coverage, but it does point to the limitations of the newspaper
