even i have bangs.

I'd just like to point out that the front page image on the Toronto Star was a photo of Michelle Obama's new bangs. As nice as it is that she got bangs and that she is becoming an instant celebrity, c'mon the front page? 

In school I've always been taught that the front page of a newspaper or the first story broadcasted on television is always the most newsworthy. The only news value that this photo displays is prominence. There is no human emotion, proximity, impact, conflict, or unusualness.

She looks fantastic, but I would not have chosen her photo as the front page image.
