Geoff of menegay blog put together a large webpage showcasing some 700 frontpages of newspapers from around the world (from Newseum) on the day that Barack Obama won the US Presidential Election - Link
The selections are impressive, though toward the end some newspapers apparently either didn't get the news, didn't care or had to go to press before the results were in.
The Statesman Journal's frontpage to the left should bring a smile to veteran web users. Apparently the Statesman Journal editors are Web lingo enthusiasts.
In other news, The New Mexico Sun News printed its declaration of an Obama victory one week before the actual election:
The Sun News is a bi-monthly newspaper and its Oct 26-Nov 8 issue had to hit the streets, and the newsstands, before the election. So the editors decided to make a leap of faith and declare Democrat Barack Obama the winner.
In an article explaining their choice, the editors unabashedly wrote, “When it comes to calling the winner of a presidential election, everyone wants to be first. The New Mexico Sun News hereby claims that achievement.” (Source)
