Bored with cold, Chicago paper fronts puppies

Tuesday morning’s front pages are mostly divided between Florida State’s victory in the BCS Championship Monday and the “polar vortex” blasting cold air over much of the country.

As fewer people read newspapers, more share their front pages

Newspapers are dying. But their front pages aren’t.

At a time when print advertising revenue continues to decline and publications are laying off staff in droves, newspaper covers are increasingly being shared digitally — helped along by the ease of posting on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms.

But why? More than anything, these A1s are seen as an encapsulation of a historical event, to be seen and filed away for a distant time when we want to remember how much something mattered in its day.

Sharing a front on Twitter — or saving a digital copy as a PDF — is the modern-day equivalent of cutting out and saving a page from a significant edition, or just a funny New York tabloid front.

 

“Whatever the newspaper industry is struggling with today, there is a long history of front pages capturing history with a kind of permanence,” said Mark Jurkowitz, associate director of the Pew Research Center’s Journalism Project, in a phone interview. Read more

A small sampling of Friday fronts (there are way too many to salute them all). All images courtesy the Newseum.

Newseum | The Washington Post | CJR | Time

Most of the country’s newspapers led the day with images of flags, or veterans, young and old, together and alone, remembering and trying to forget. But a few newspapers told love stories.

The Gainesville Sun fronts a story from the Salisbury (N.C.) Post that’s woven through letters during World War II.

‘Global Stuporstar’: How Canadian newspapers played Rob Ford crack admission

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford told reporters Tuesday that he had smoked crack, “Probably in one of my drunken stupors.” One PR professional told the CBC Ford’s admission, which followed months of denial and a recent PR counteroffensive, seemed like “one of the most unconventional and mind-boggling communications strategies that I’ve ever seen in my life.”

Here’s how the news played on some Canadian newspapers:

Newspapers show clouds over D.C. as shutdown looms

The U.S. government will shut down Tuesday morning if Congress doesn’t make progress on a funding dispute. But real clouds, too, have loomed over Washington, D.C., at times over the past few days, and the combination of weather and whether-or-not proved irresistible for some front-page designers.
