Newseum is a 250,000-square-foot museum about news. The institution “offers visitors an experience that blends five centuries of news history with up-to-the-second technology and hands-on exhibits” in its Washington, D.C., facility, according to its website. It sits adjacent to the Smithsonian museums on the National Mall.
Each day on its website, the institution picks the front pages they like the best from among the nation’s hundreds of daily newspapers. They feature the front pages on a post called “Today’s Top Ten Front Pages.” Generally the post follows a theme, and the theme from today’s Top Ten list is “Back in Business.”
In his post regarding today’s honored selections, John Powell wrote: “At the eleventh hour on Wednesday, U.S. lawmakers struck a deal to raise the debt limit and reopen the federal government, ending a partial shutdown that dragged on for 16 days. Newspapers responded with clever headlines and graphics. South Carolina’s Aiken Standard stuck Band-Aids on a divided Congress. Indiana’s Tribune Star trumpeted “We’re Open for Business.” “Until Next Time,” warns Texas’s Monitor.”
