Papers to compete with Cherry-Coke Jello Mold

November 27, 2008

There’s lots of competition for readers’ attention today, what with Thanksgiving newspaper circulars to scour for Black Friday deals — and all the extra bing cherries Aunt Marcelline piled into her world-famous Cherry-Coke Jello Mold. So! Why not try something different on page one — as this sampling of Gannett papers shows?

First up is the Times Herald in Port Huron, Mich. (bigger view):


The Tulare (Calif.) Advance-Register (bigger view):


And The Arizona Republic (bigger view):

Hot Off the Press: Michigan primary day papers

January 15, 2008

The political world is focused on Michigan today as Republican presidential candidates John McCain and Mitt Romney duke it out in the state’s primary. Here’s how two Gannett Michigan papers looked this morning. (I would have liked to have included the Lansing State Journal, but I couldn’t find it in the Newseum’s database.) Both the Detroit Free Press and the Times Herald north of Detroit are reporting light turnout so far.

The Free Press hits a cultural trifecta this morning: politics, in the presidential primary; the annual Detroit Auto Show, and that other contest, the start of American Idol‘s seventh season.

The Times Herald, where local officials were tamping down expectations of long lines at the polls.

Forget Iowa; what about that stuck duck?

January 4, 2008

This is today’s Times Herald at Port Huron, Mich.; click on the image for a bigger view. The paper, about an hour northeast of Detroit, takes local-local news to the max this morning. In print, there isn’t a single word on Page One about last night’s big Iowa caucuses upset. On the other hand, editors were all over a story about firefighters rescuing a mallard stuck in the partially frozen Black River. The duck’s future looks grim. I wonder how they’ll play the duck’s death, if it comes to that?

Update on Jan. 6: Looks like the duck may make it after all!
