Washington Post Case Study

Partner(s): David Klatell - School of Journalism

"Building the Front Page of The Washington Post" is the first case study jointly created by CCNMTL and the Journalism School. It reconstructs how the editors of The Washington Post built the front page of the June 16, 2004 issue, based on the news of June 15. The goal is to gain an understanding of the considerations behind a newspaper's front page, identify the practical concerns at work, and discuss the extent to which editors' priorities are realized in the finished product.
