Stop the presses! The Boston Herald made The Newseum’s Top Ten Front Pages on Monday.
Here’s the text:
In the aftermath of George Zimmerman’s acquittal for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin 17 months ago, people took to the streets Sunday in cities across the country to protest the not-guilty verdict.
