Today’s Top 10 Front Pages: “Madiba is Dead” 

The image of just one man appears nearly universal on front pages across the globe today. Nelson Mandela, a former political prisoner who became president of South Africa, and one of history’s most influential world leaders, died Dec. 5 at age 95. Today’s front-page photographs and headlines reflect his grace and distinction. 

Top one is the best. Easy.

Journalism shrine The Newseum ironically not always friendly for reporters

  • Obama Back in March, journalists and free speech advocates were up in arms after President Obama had reporters escorted out of the room prior to accepting questions from attendees of the Business Roundtable at the Newseum in Washington, DC.
  • Romney Last night, following a 28-minute speech given to executive attendees of the Business Roundtable at the Newseum, Mitt Romney’s campaign did the same thing. The Newseum, BTW, has a 74-foot-tall First Amendment tablet on the building’s exterior. source

Today in pointing out the additional editorial value Newseum’s long-dormant watermark gives Anthony Weiner’s skin. (Yeah yeah, this is similar to our last post, but you really have to see the effect of the watermarks on that New York Post page close-up.)

Tom McGeveran in today’s The Front: A choice between observing Weiner’s humiliation and compounding it

Wow, The Daily News actually held back on being total jerks. On a side note, WHEN DID THE NEWSEUM bring back their watermarks? *grumble*

Notice something different about today’s page? Perhaps a little faded and gray? Here’s why. That’s right: Newseum’s testing watermarks. Eww. Our take: There has to be a way for Newseum to deal with this on the server end (say, preventing mass downloaders) without sullying the great pages they offer up to the world.
