Newseum lets you tour the world via headlines

newseum.pngNewseum - the Interactive Museum of News -  is a bricks and mortar museum being built in Washington DC, but its website already has a wealth of information including "Today's Front Page" -  snapshots of front pages from over 400 newspapers in 40 countries around the world.
You can view the front pages via lists of newspapers, or in a photo gallery format, but the map view is perhaps the coolest.
By selecting the map view, you can select a region of the globe and mouse over the map to be shown the front page of the newspapers in that area. It's a nice visual way to take the news pulse of the globe, although the international representation so far seems sparse. Today's front pages returned only 1 newspaper from London, and only 2 from Australia (the Sunday Age and the Courier Mail).
Thanks for the tip, Cam!
