Headline News

President Obama is in Minneapolis today to give a major speech on health care, the most hotly debated issue in the United States.

This is the front page of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the so-called "Newspaper of the Twin Cities":

Can you find any news about the Obama's speech in Minneapolis?

Go ahead, magnify it. Anything?

This is supposed to be the newspaper of the Twin Cities. Not the sports paper of the twin cities.

Are they trying to carry out their desire to continue "management’s successful efforts to change the widespread image of the Star Tribune from a strongly liberal paper to a strictly non-partisan news source"? Do they think that covering a President who is a liberal might interfere with management' image-changing plan?

You tell me.
