Obama fronts

President-elect Barack Obama made the front pages of newspapers around the world Wednesday and and other sites provided a world view.

We rounded up the Sun Media tabloid efforts and our Best O'Bama Front Award vote goes to the Calgary Sun. It is tight, bright and "History Made in America" says it all.

Edmonton's "American Revolution!" captured the essence of the historical milestone, but the photo was weak. Toronto and Ottawa editors must have been on the phone because both went with Bam!, which just didn't do it for us. Toronto used a better photo, so takes third place. Winnipeg's decision to go with a cartoon is baffling.

The fronts: Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa, Winnipeg.

  1. What's that last one - a comic book? With all the live art available they go with a high school yearbook type sketch? Typical lack of journalistic sense.
