On my way to work this morning in Washington, D.C., I grabbed a copy of Express, the daily newspaper published by The Washington Post. The front cover had a photograph of President-elect Donald Trump and President Barack Obama from yesterday’s historic Oval Office meeting. The headline: “AWKWARD.

On my lunch hour, I happened to walk by the Newseum’s outdoor display of today’s front pages from around the U.S.A. and the world. I couldn’t help but notice that some of the covers had the exact same photo, but with a different headline. Some papers chose to use another photo from the same meeting. The differences were sometimes VERY subtle. It was fascinating.

Objectivity in journalism? Media bias? Optimistic or negative? You be the judge. The newspaper covers below, and more, can be viewed on the Newseum’s web site.
