New York Daily News
is trending on its
reporting the death of Osama Bin Laden, with a headline reading, “Rot in Hell!” While other news outlets like the
New York Times
opted for unemotional, descriptive headlines, the
Philadelphia Daily News
wins the John Wayne award for its headline, “We Got the Bastard!”
In an uncharacteristically restrained cover, the
New York Post
simply declared, “Got Him!” Bin Laden was finally tracked down and killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan nearly 10 years after masterminding the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
President Obama is getting high marks for the operation, though Rush Limbaugh, not surprisingly, refuses to go along. He began his radio show with praise for the president that was dripping in sarcasm.
