Who’s winning the battle of the front pages?
The Media Mob would like to reward the Post for scaling back its Post Poker ad and getting a nice big screamer headline out there. But the Media Mob happened to first spot this front page out the corner of one eye in its natural competitive habitat–on a Penn Station newspaper rack. And on that newsstand stroll-by, the most salient impression was that “Ferrer ad / lewd diss / to Mike / & Bush” is indecipherable jibber-jabber.
So the Daily News–despite somehow using a photo of George Bush that doesn’t look like George Bush–carries the day again.
Winner: Daily News
Overall standings: Daily News 6, New York Post 2
