9-11 Anniversary Observed With Somber Ceremonies

On the 11th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, commemorations seem to be scaling back in favor of a personal day of remembrance. 

Neither the New York Times nor the New York Post make mention of 9/11 on their wrapper; The Wall Street Journal’s only front-page mention is in an ad from CitiBank; and the Washington Post, while running a small photo of the Twin Towers burning, makes no mention of the attacks on the Pentagon. 

Good Morning America also notes on Twitter that “For the first time, no politicians will speak at the 9/11 memorial ceremony at Ground Zero this morning, it will be family only.”

The New York Times does mention, however, that Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Governor Andrew Cuomo have “reached an agreement to resume construction of the September 11th museum at ground zero in Manhattan.”
