The newspaper headline is the first, most important and often only thing that people read when they pick up the newspaper. Because of that it's incredibly important for the headline to be powerful and compelling. There's are professionals in the industry that determine what's newsworthy and what's not, but these papers show what news would look like if the average Joe chose the news.
This project was made by Newswhip and it shows what actually matters to people versus what traditional news organizations say is important to people. The front page stories on each people-powered paper are significantly different than their real world counterparts.
While it seems like the people's news would be all entertainment, it's actually compelling pieces that get significantly less coverage in real papers. The real news could take a page or two out of these papers to determine what is truly relevant.
