Headlines on newspapers in the U.S. and around the world didn’t flinch the day after a pro-Trump mob stormed the nation’s Capitol causing one death, the evacuation of the Congress and widespread condemnation from both parties. Headlines included “Democracy Attacked,” “Insurrection,” and from two international newspapers, “Anarchy.”

Poynter’s Al Tompkins wrote Wednesday that journalists have an obligation to describe what happened “without fear or favor.” 

You can also see the work of the journalists on the ground through a Twitter list we’ve curated. It includes some of the stunning photojournalism and reporting that dominated these front pages. Here’s a collection, via Freedom Forum.
