Paul Ryan, Paul the Time Edition

After Mitt Romney (R-How You Like Me Now?) announced his choice of running mate Saturday morning, the Paul Ryan Express roared through the news media, very much including Boston’s dailies.

Sunday’s Boston Herald front page (via The Newseum’s Today’s Front Pages):

The local tabloid devoted its first 10 news pages to Romney’s Veep Leap, along with one editorial and three – count ’em, three (here, here, and here) – op-ed columns.

Crosstown, the Boston Globe gave three broadsheet pages to the story, along with one editorial.

(Just for scale, the Globe’s kissin’ cousin New York Times featured four-and-a-half broadsheet pages, plus one Sunday Review piece.)

The Paul Ryan Express just accelerates from here.

  1. […] The Paul Ryan Express roars through the news media. Local stops at IGTLTDT. […]

  2. Interestingly, in the NYT’s piece on Ryan, the “Reader’s Pick” comments are overwhelmingly anti-Ryan — 40 to 0 when I stopped counting — but the Times’ own picks were 1/3 pro-Ryan.

    Is the difference explained by the tax brackets of Times’ editors?
