How the OC Register covered the Supreme Court’s ruling on Prop 8






Planning for this day’s coverage began almost a month ago. We tweaked our plans for the Supreme Court’s possible ruling on Prop 8 earlier in the week.

* A wide range of local stories.

* Thoughtful local columns.

* The Register’s great photography.

* Lots of different voices on the issue. On the top of every page of our coverage.

* Using more than just 20-inches of text to tell the story.

* Fantastic design.

* And my favorite headline of any paper in the country.

All part of a 76-page, six-section paper.

I know we charged a dollar for this paper. It wasn’t a dollar paper. It was more like a $2.50 or $3 paper.
