From Auckland to Zurich, Robin Williams remembered on fronts around the world

On Monday, Poynter shared front pages remembering the late actor Robin Williams. In the 10 months I’ve worked at Poynter, I’ve never seen so many foreign papers spotlighting the same story. The Newseum has more.

Alex Fitzpatrick, Time’s homepage director, tweeted the magazine’s front on Wednesday.

On that note, here’s a lesson from the New York Daily News on how to not cover Williams’ death responsibly.
