Abstract

Using content analysis, this article compares the front-page elements of The New York Times with six major metropolitan national newspapers to assess how different news organizations package and present their most important page to the public. Findings reveal that The New York Times featured more international and national news stories, depended more frequently on its own stafffor both stories and images, and used smaller headlines on its front pages compared with the other major metropolitan newspapers.
