Comparing Front Covers: Taxis, Parrots, Veiled faces, and Jet-skis

| | Comments (0)
Looking at the cover of AM New York (Sept 29, 2009), I noticed that it focused mainly on the picture of taxis in order to demonstrate the problems with traffic (which the featured story is about).  It is colorful, and the bright red letters certainly catch the eye.  However, at the bottom of the cover is an ad for a "Parrot Behavior & Training Workshop."  This seemed very out of place, especially since the main story seemed to be very relate-able to the residents of New York, where as parrot training did not.  Well, I guess if you want to read about traffic AND parrot behavior, pick up an AM New York.

The next cover I looked at was The Times (Sept. 29, 2009).  It displayed a large picture of a woman's eyes looking down and her face covered by cloth.  There is no obvious description as to what this picture relates to.  Underneath is an article about a Jet-ski tragedy.  The jet-ski story does not relate to the picture.  At first glance, I thought the picture was there to add to the story, or that the story was there to explain the picture.  However, I am left seeing an article with a random picture of a woman wearing a veil over her face.
