Today I was browsing news websites from all over the world, looking for a good model for the new Loyola Phoenix website. As I went from site to site, I was reminded of our class’s discussion on mainstream media– every single one had the “United Flight 1549 Crash” as its top story.

Granted, the story is amazing, but with a whole world of news out there, shouldn’t somebody have something else to report on? 

Maybe I’m being too picky. At least the attacks on Gaza hospitals and a UN warehouse made it above the plane crash on Al Jazeera. Barely.

Anyway, here’s a particularly good mashup I found, courtesy of GoodBlimey.

And here’s another, which I daresay is even better.
