The freedom of the press to investigate important and timely subjects in an unfettered and responsible fashion is one that is an valuable component of democracy. In an effort to pay tribute to those efforts, the Newseum opened in Arlington, Va., in 1997. The Newseum's primary focus is to celebrate the First Amendment both in its museum and on its well-designed and informative website. Visitors to their homepage will want to begin by looking at the "Today's Front Pages" feature, where they may view the front pages of over 300 US and international newspapers. Moving on, visitors can also view a number of nice online exhibits, such as one that features photographs that have received the Pulitzer Prize and a fine exhibit on D-Day. Finally, interested parties may also browse a calendar of upcoming events of note sponsored by the Newseum.
