Article: (Almost) 100 Days of Page One Headlines About Presidents Trump, Obama and Bush
Writer:Larry Buchanan, K.K. Rebecca and Anjali Singhvi
I think this was a really brilliant idea by the New York Times, It’s a very interesting concept and it was a great read!
The first 100 days of a presidency are always used as a way to judge the years the follow.
The layout of this is very easy to follow and it think the fact that it is just the headlines, no comments beside each of them adds a lot to this article without saying anything.
It should be an objective piece, as how can an article with barely any words be in any ways bias? but in retrospective looking at the headlines and the language used in their coverage tells a whole other tale.
The approach of media has changed over each term, as have the issues each president has faced. The actual politics has remained the same.
In terms of the actual website, I love the Times minimalistic and monotone aesthetic. It’s very neat and almost replicates the traditional newspaper.
There also no pesky pop ups which is always a bonus.
