The National Post launched its new design yesterday and today it is paying a high price for a wrong decision with its new vertical name plate.
And the front page picture had to be cropped in order to fit with the aesthetics of the new format…
So, we lost the most dramatic part of the picture of the day: the killing of a photojournalist.
The Toronto Globe and Mail front page shows the whole picture.
The same bad choice was made by the Austrian Kleine Zeitung.
While the Canadian and Austrian papers made a terrible mistake, the International Herald Tribune presented the two photos in full.
Publico, the new Spanish viewspaper, selected another excellent picture.
Reuters has done a superb job covering the demonstrations.
Watch the killing of our colleague in this video from Reuters.
His death deserved a more sensitive news judgement and better photo editing.
What a shame!
