Front Page of the Day. The Daily News in New York pays tribute to the victims of the September 11 2001 terrorist attacks in New York on the 11th anniversary of those events. Meanwhile, The New York Times has come under fire for not commemorating the attacks on its front page, while its tabloid competitor the New York Post also failed to partake in anniversary journalism. Which raised the question within the Crikey office this morning: how long is a newspaper meant to memorialise, on its front page, an event shared deeply by its readers?

The Department of Corrections. One’s a petulant sook, the other is … well … also a petulant sook. Except for the whole drug-cheating business you can understand why one may get disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong and angry South African-born English cricketer Kevin Pietersen confused. From yesterday’s Hindustan Times in India:
