Globe Beats Herald in Storm Front (Page) Bakeoff

The Boston Herald has long been a self-promotion machine, touting some coverage that led to government action or crowing about its inclusion in the Newseum’s Top Ten Front Pages on a particular day.

But not today, because that latter distinction belongs to crosstown rival Boston Globe.

How’s the Weather?

As the Northeast braces for a potential blizzard for the ages, front pages in that region are doing the same and preparing readers for the impact. AM New York offers a “Blizzard Survival Guide.” “Bracing for a big one,” The Boston Globe warns. Are newspapers still relevant? In times like these, they’re just as essential as milk, batteries, water and toilet paper.

Hey – win some, lose some. But the beauty of the daily bakeoff is, there’s always tomorrow.

Plow on, Heraldniks.
