Today’s Page One Bulger Bakeoff had some clear winners, even if they appeared in the fine print.
To review (compliments of the Newseum’s Today’s Front Pages):
Boston Globe: The full Bachrach of Bulger, but it comes via WBUR (via the Associated Press).
Boston Herald: One big product placement for WCVB. That shot produced a bonanza of exposure for ‘CVB. See also Metro Boston, Brockton Enterprise, New York Times (below), and probably countless others.
New York Times: 1953 mugshots have a sharp, old-school look.
Big Town Bonus: Whitey gets a shoutout in the Post!
If you can make Page One there, you can make it anywhere, eh?
