A sampling of front-pages from national newspapers:
Today, all three of these newspapers (as did most other U.S. newspapers) featured similar coverage of yesterday's memorial service for the fallen police officers in Dallas on their front page. (The service and Obama's speech also received significant coverage on this morning's news shows.) Here's the AP lede for this story:
President Barack Obama joined with former President George W. Bush and others in memorializing five officers killed in the line of duty Thursday.
On the other hand, instead of the memorial service the Intelligencer's front-page, top story was
WJU and Diocese Partner for Future
and coverage of the actual memorial service for the fallen officers was nowhere to be found.
Perhaps I'm being too harsh on the Intelligencer -- they do mention the memorial service on page 6 -- but as a coming event. Here's the AP story they ran in today's paper telling us that President Obama will be speaking in Dallas on Tuesday:
I would note that most of the newspapers that ran this particular AP story did so on Monday. Hey, maybe we'll get coverage of the actual service tomorrow or Friday. Then again, maybe we won't.
