Battle of the Newspaper Medicare Coverage

James Fallows of The Atlantic Monthly ran a comparison of the major newspapers and their Medicare coverage from this last week:

Overall front-page lead story in the WaPo: “Medicare’s future appears brighter”.

#2 off-lead front page story in the NYT: “Report Shows Better Outlook for Medicare”.

The new Medicare assessment does make a cameo appearance at the bottom of page 5 (see right). Instead the WSJ devotes its featured front-page space to whether the IRS is doing more inspections of Republicans, and the plush life of modern Washington. Plus a very good (really) story, in the tradition of the old WSJ “A-hed” front-page features, on the modern high-tech sock-knitting industry.
