It’s always instructive observing what the Boston Herald considers newsworthy, especially when it involves the paper itself.
Latest case in point: Today’s big news story about . . . That’s right: The Herald.
Yesterday’s Herald Page One, advancing last night’s presidential debate, went national as one of the Newseum’s Top 10 front pages — the 11th time the prominent journalism institution has honored the paper this year.
The page, designed by Page One Editor Paul Keaney, was selected from hundreds of newspaper covers from around the world by the Washington D.C.-based organization.
Here’s the Newseum’s Top Ten feature from yesterday:
Rumble in the Rockies
How do you tell readers what they already know, that the two presidential contenders will debate tonight in Denver? Creativity is one way to do it, and it’s an approach shared by our 10 top front pages. If we had to pick just one for the pre-debate prize, it would be the Asbury Park Press with its “Rumble in the Rockies” reminder.
Close, Herald, but no cigar.
