Newseum is a world news museum based in Washington DC, and Frontpages is a product that offers significantly more access to American newspapers than others. Most of the 60+ countries that Todays’ Frontpages cover are however in the developed world, namely North America, and Europe (excluding Croatia Montenegro, and Russia). Latin America is also well covered, as well as some of the Asian Countries, while the African view sadly offers only 3 newspaper entries for the entire continent.
To study the differences in coverage of different regions, pay attention to how the orange dots are dissapearing as we switch from European to Asian or African view. Mouse over for a snapsot of the dots on the American map.
