Government Shutdown: Comparing Newspaper Front Pages

Whether you have a fervent or just passing interest in front page coverage of big stories, the best place to start is the Newseum's Today's Front Pages Web site. Today's sampling includes 908 front pages from 87 countries, all weighing in in some fashion on the US government shutdown. Each day's  selection of front pages is available on the site by 8:30 a.m. Each morning editors choose a min-exhibit of that day's top 10 front pages. You can ignore such pre-selection and wade through them all yourself or, for more organized browsing, papers are sorted by region with lists and maps.

Today's Front Pages is also a permanent "bricks and mortar" exhibit residing on the 6th level of the museum (located in Washington, DC). The  museum as a whole is this librarian-blogger's favorite non-art museum on the planet. Good stuff for all ages!
