Newspaper front pages and floods: Who's making it top priority -- and who's moving on

The flooding in Colorado remains the biggest story in the state -- or does it? To find out, we checked out current front pages of newspapers from around the state as collected by Newseum -- and as you can see in the gallery below, many broadsheets continue to cover the story in depth, while others, especially in outlying areas that weren't as directly impacted, have started to move on. See a dozen widely varied examples below.

 Absolutely terrible covers by Vail and the Gazette. Embarrassingly terrible lead headline in the Post. This isn't a time to play on words. And while it was a tragedy in Washington, the No. 1-1,000 story in Colorado is the flooding. In comparison, the mass shooting is an afterthought. Bad play to put the shooting on the (allegedly all local, right Greg Moore?) front page. Good thing it happened at 6:30 a.m. Colorado time, otherwise it wouldn't have made it into the print edition at all, unlike the first Broncos game. A refer is enough. 

Weak design by Longmont (nee Boulder). If ever there's a call for a 200-point "Man Lands on the Moon" headline in your hyper-local paper, this is it. It's a 500-year flood in your hometown. Instead, it's like it's something happening in Alamosa. Heck, it doesn't even go across the entire page. Summit Daily and Glenwood Springs are out of touch.  Hate the Coloradoan headline, but that's by far the best cover.

Move on? It just happened, God bless them! If you don't cover the story, I think and feel you don't care. I just want to hear that things are getting better.

The flood coverage is pretty beat. Time for some news.
