We’ve heard from many readers, saying that we should have shown a photo of Hillary Clinton with Wednesday’s Page One coverage of her nomination. We blew it and should have made sure her photograph was included in the history being made.
Wednesday’s front page, which featured a banner headline, “Clinton makes history with formal nomination,” failed to include a photograph of Hillary Clinton, the first woman to lead a major-party ticket, instead putting the visual focus on former President Bill Clinton, who made an impassioned case for her election as the next president. The omission upset many readers. In hindsight, we focused too much on the live moment and not enough on the history being made. We apologize for missing the mark.
