Front page of the day: Have we reached peak Denali/McKinley?

I apologize for that headline.

Tuesday’s front page of the day comes from The Cincinnati Enquirer, which led with news that the president was renaming Alaska’s Mount McKinley to Denali. From President William McKinley’s home state:

OH_CE

On Monday, Jennifer Steinhauer wrote about some to reactions to the news for The New York Times:

To be clear, President William McKinley has one of the largest grave sites of any former American president, so perhaps a mountaintop was a bit superfluous.

But this has not stopped the political outrage — manufactured, deeply felt and otherwise convenient — flowing from the state of Ohio, birthplace of the 25th president, on the heels of President Obama’s announcement on Sunday that he was changing, or in the view of many Alaskans restoring, the name of Mount McKinley to Denali.

Today’s front page of the day: Inside WDBJ

Today’s front page of the day comes from The Roanoke Times in Roanoke, Virginia. Like it did on Thursday, the Times devoted the entire front to the murders of local journalists Alison Parker and Adam Ward. The lead story takes readers into the newsroom, how people at the station learned of the shootings and what it has been like to carry on after the two were killed on live television. Other stories on the page focus on the shooter, how he got his weapon and how Parker’s father, Andy Parker, is pushing for gun control.

“You look at this, you look at Newtown, you look at the movie theater shooter,” he said. “How many times does this have to happen before we take action as a country and the politicians grow some backbone and stop being lackeys of the NRA?”

In an interview with The Associated Press, Parker said he was reluctant to do interviews, “but Alison was a journalist, and she was a hell of a journalist, and I’m doing it for her because I think she would want this story told.”

The New York Daily News, which got a lot of criticism on Thursday for its cover, led Friday with an editorial in favor of gun control. Read more

Front page of the day: Remembering Alison Parker and Adam Ward

This morning, I am not going to show you any front pages with images of someone about to be murdered, taken by the person who did the killing. Those images are out there and you can find them.

Today, I was looking for front pages that taught me something I didn’t know. Many focused on the horror of the murders and how they played out on live TV and social media. But just as many showed a community grieving and told more of the lives and work of Alison Parker and photographer Adam Ward.

Today’s front page of the day comes from the Richmond Times-Dispatch, which devoted the entire front to the story.

Front page of the day: The other side of school choice

Wednesday’s front page of the day comes from The (Charleston, South Carolina) Post and Courier. Today was the first chapter in The Post and Courier’s series on “the unintended consequences of school choice.”

SC_PC

As part of the series online, you’ll meet five students whom journalists at the paper followed for the story, explore an interactive that shows where students live and where they’re actually attending school and see data from the school district itself.

Front page of the day: ‘Katrina @ 10′

Today’s front page of the day comes from Gambit in New Orleans, Louisiana. Gambit led with a look into what’s changed in the city since Hurricane Katrina hit on Aug. 29, 2005. Via Newseum:

LA_GA

The image under the curled back white paper is from Gambit’s first cover after the hurricane. From the piece:

After Hurricane Katrina, Gambit’s return to print was on Nov. 1, 2005 — All Saint’s Day, two months after the federal levee collapses. Our cover story, “Picking Up the Pieces,” posed three questions to locals:

• What should New Orleans’ priorities be at the outset of the rebuilding process?

• What elements of New Orleans must we preserve at all costs?

• What mistakes must we avoid at all costs?

These people were surveyed in late October 2005, a little less than two months after the city flooded.

Front page of the day: Protests in Brazil

Today’s front page of the day comes from Jornal Do Commercio in Recife, Brazil. Like many newspapers in Brazil, it led with news and images of Sunday’s anti-government protests:

BRA^PE_JDC

The BBC reports about 350,000 people took part in protests in Sao Paulo.

Hundreds of thousands of people have taken part in protests across Brazil calling for the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff.

Support for Ms Rousseff has fallen to single-digit figures in recent polls.

Many voters have accused her of failing to stamp out corruption and blame her for the economy’s worst slump in 25 years.

Here are a few other fronts that led with the story, via Newseum and Kiosko:

BRA_FDL

BRA_OE

BRA_GDP

The protests also made fronts outside of Brazil. This is from Spain:
