A day after excoriating Congress with a powerful “Shame on U.S.” front cover that took the U.S. Senate to task for removing the assault weapons ban from the larger gun reform bill, the New York Daily News is keeping pressure on DC. You might call this unrelenting, unfettered advocacy journalism. CHECK ALL THIS OUT HERE.
Unflinchingly meta, but unflinching all the same. HV’s right. Great advocacy journalism.
Today in newspaper front pages that remind you of the importance of tabloid journalism sometimes. The New York Daily News had a similar idea but with worse execution. (On a side note, Newseum, where we grabbed this page from, finally took the watermarks off their front pages — hopefully for good. We hope our campaign helped change their minds. We’d still like to see newspapers consider releasing their front pages under a Creative Commons license.)source
Sideshow Don is grinning: The ever-outrageous New York Daily News had some fun with the war of words between Donald Trump and David Plouffe (or, really, between Trump and anyone/thing affiliated with Barack Obama). At least it’s a smiling picture? (EDIT: The cutout of Trump’s hair is easily the worst we’ve ever seen.)source
