Weekly Telegraph Royal Wedding Bin Laden Front Page: Best Ever?


The Daily Telegraph's weekly world edition (called, unsurprisingly, The Weekly Telegraph), ran a front page on its latest edition that can only be called stunning. Peter Thal Larsen, a writer for Reuters, was one of the first to notice the absolutely astonishing melding of the royal wedding and the death of Osama bin Laden. The wedding got bigger play, but the two stories turned the front page into a kind of global symbol for the twin poles of fluff and grit, hard news and soft, that make up today's journalistic world.

The Atlantic's James Fallows was very direct in his opinion about the page: "Greatest Front Page Ever." But what do you think? Tell us in our poll below.
