Bhutto Coverage

The Star vs. The Times

The front page of the Saturday Star was all Bhuto: three cover stories and a photo. Inside, in the other sections, Bhutto stories and related columns took up another seven pages approximately.

In the New York Times, Bhutto coverage was somehow condensed to one story. Just one.

So, either the Times knows how to summarize and the Star doesn't or the Star is so desperate to fill columns, it doesn't mind producing a paper that could easily be called the Pakistan Star.
