Newseum Is So Cool!

Hey Everyone,
Here is a great site that allows you to find front page news on a Global Level. It is so easy to use.
All you do is put your mouse on any city in the world, and the front page of the local newspaper pops up. When you find one that interests you, double click and it gets larger.
I think it is a great site to teach students what makes something newsworthy and compare how different areas define news and who covers what.
So, any great ideas how to use this site?
Copy and paste this address and check it out.

Who was it who said, "no news is good news"? It is interesting to see what different front page news appears across the U.S.
