Newseum: Front Pages Across the Country

I want to share a cool website in the event you don’t already know about it.  The Newseum is a museum in Washington, DC that focuses on the news media, which basically means newspapers and television.  They do a terrific job with visual and interactive displays.  For example, their exhibit of Pulitzer Prize winning photographs is excellent—they show video conversations with some of the photographers describing how their photos actually happened.  Anyway, I just discovered a feature on their website that I love, and so I wanted to share it with you.  The feature is called Today’s Front Pages and it is a map of the United States with dots representing different newspapers in each state.  If you move your cursor over a dot it shows the front page for that particular newspaper.  If you click on the dot, it takes to you a full-screen version of the front page, and it also gives you a link to that newspaper’s website.  This same feature allows you to see front pages for newspapers all over the world.  Check it out and see what you think.
