Who’s winning the battle of the front pages?

Taking a cue from yesterday’s Post, the Daily News pares its cop-funeral treatment down to a plain, stark image. No intrusive, overexplaining subheads–or even headlines. It’s the tabloid equivalent of a moment of silence.

At first, the Post looks yappy by comparison. Until, that is, you notice they shut down the whole sports cover for the occasion.

Winner: New York Post

Overall standings: Daily News 14, New York Post 12 WOOD WAR XXVI
