Thatcher’s Death Receives Mixed Newsworthiness Around the Web

News that former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher died broke this morning shortly before 8 a.m. ET. Given her status as Britain’s first and only female Prime Minister and close relationship with President Reagan in the U.S., it’s a front page story for essentially every big American publication. A small scattering of smaller news outlets such as The Daily Beast and Breitbart.com also played it up.

A look at how Thatcher’s death played out around the Web…
