In light of today’s musings about inauguration coverage, here’s a link to 94 front pages from across the country and around the world. Interesting to see how the story was framed elsewhere.
Meanwhile, with respect to former president, George W. Bush, here’s an example of the coverage of his second inaugural, as reported by MSNBC in 2005. Note the related stories (low-tech fact files and road maps).
Twitter hadn’t been invented yet and Facebook had only 1 million users, as compared to more than a billion today. Was that a factor in the relatively tame MSNBC storytelling?
We’ll talk next time.
