Haiti: A tale of two headlines

Posted By on Mon, Jan 18, 2010 at 10:16 AM

A reader notes the differing tones in two newspapers' lead headlines this morning on the situation in Haiti:

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette:

Crisis grows as gangs roam Haiti

Thanksgiving, cries for help mingle amid destruction

New York Times

UPDATE: The Washington Post goes with the violence.

Refugees try to flee Port-au-Prince as security situation in Haiti deteriorates
