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…

The news received more modest breaking coverage on Politico, which put together a slideshow of Thatcher’s photos below the top headlines.

The Hill also took a milder approach to the breaking news, running it as  the third headline from the top with no accompanying picture.

As for The Daily Caller, someone was asleep at the wheel when the news broke.

Most other outlets gave the story a dominant place on the front page.
