Front page of the day. Don’t you love it when two big same-city tabloids have the same headline for the same story?

The Department of Corrections. Well we’re glad New Zealand newspaper The Dominion Post cleared this up yesterday.

Headline of the day. From the front page of today’s presumptuous NT News:

Australian media probe priced at $1.4m

“The government’s media inquiry will add $1.4 million to the bottom line for just five months’ work, the mid-year economic and fiscal outlook reveals.” — The Australian

Facebook unveils most shared stories of 2011

“Facebook has released a list of the 40 most shared stories of 2011 (well, the first 11 months, at least). We’ve collected the top 20 into a gallery — check it out.” — Mashable

Facebook reaches deal over ‘unfair and deceptive’ claims

“Facebook ‘deceived consumers by telling them they could keep their information on Facebook private, and then repeatedly allowing it to be shared and made public,’ US regulators said as they announced a settlement over privacy issues with the social networking giant.” — The Guardian

Nicaragua’s president rules airwaves to control image

“The election this month in which President Daniel Ortega won a third term and a supermajority in Congress may have been marred by irregularities — the European Union’s electoral mission called the vote tally ‘opaque and arbitrary,’ and observers were blocked from monitoring some polls — but on most TV news channels, things looked different.” — New York Times

British Library makes early papers available online

“The British Library has made part of its archive of 18th and 19th century newspapers available online following a year-long digitisation project. The scanned pages — around four million — come from more than 200 mostly 19th century newspapers across the UK and Ireland.” — journalism.co.uk
