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

More troops and supplies arrive in Haiti

Amid desperation, mood stays calm.

It is possible that the devastation and mass confusion make a dozen-word synthesis a near-impossible task.

UPDATE: The Washington Post goes with the violence.

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