Newspaper map of the world

The Newseum in Washington, D.C., has a fascinating  Newspaper Map of the World that allows you to read front pages of newspapers around the world just by mouse-clicking on the city location on the map.  You can also get a display of newspaper front pages by region, and access to a newspaper’s web site if it has one.

Not every nation or region of the world participates.  There are 24 newspaper front pages from Germany, but only one from France and only four from the entire continent of Africa.  Still, it is interesting to see the newspapers from the different, even if you can’t read the language, and English-language publications aren’t limited to English-speaking countries.

The display includes newspapers from every U.S. state and editions the Stars and Stripes, the U.S. armed forces newspaper, published in Germany and Japan.

I thank my friend Bill Elwell once again for another fascinating link.

The Newseum, the interactive museum of journalism, was the creation of Al Neuharth, the founder of USA Today and former CEO of Gannett Co. Inc., my former employer.

Click on this or the link in the first paragraph, and then on “gallery” or “list” if the mouse and map are unwieldy.
