Search for Famous Headlines

by admin on April 11, 2009

Famous Headlines become famous for many reasons. Some became famous because of the news they are reporting like the V E  edition. These were the two letters all of Europe had been waiting for since 1939. Victory in Europe was announced on May 8, 1945 or simply as many newspapers reported it as “V-E Day”.

When you search old newspapers you will discover other reasons that  headlines become famous, like the reporting of the outcome of the 1948 presidential election in America.  On November 2, 1948 the headlines read “Dewey Wins”. We now know this was wrong but it will forever be the most famous wrong headline ever.

Of course then the sad headlines we all wish we could forget like “President Kennedy Shot to Death In Dallas; Gov. Connally Wounded”. That was the headline that shocked and saddens the nation on November 22, 1963.

It makes one wonder why when we read a headline if it will be famous and are they for sure going to be remembered. The headlines read like a timeline in our history.  The good, the bad, the mistakes, and the tragic.  All make the headlines and all are unforgettable. In time some, if not most forget what has happened and made headlines in the past of each year but not all.  When Mark McGwire broke the home run record, what year was it?  Maybe the steroid scandal after the record was broken has helped this headline fad. I am not sure and do care anymore.  I had even saved the paper but through it out after the scandal.

It all depends on what is important to us over time on whether a famous headline stays famous for any length of time.
