Going all out, or not, for Christmas December 25, 2009 By Lee Scanning Newseum’s front pages, it seems a lot of dailies are none too shy about making a big splash for Christmas. A very few gave away the whole page. Some played it cool, going somewhere between irrational exuberance and restraint. Mine’s in there somewhere, but it’s not my favorite I have to admit. And others had no break in their typical A1 presentation, although the story selection was certainly Christmassy — actually moving and compelling stuff.
