Newseum Reopens in Washington

Newseum Reopens in Washington

The Newseum, a $450 million tribute to America’s reporters and First Amendment, has opened its doors inside the nation’s capital. The Newseum’s first incarnation came in 1997 across the Potomac in Arlington, Virginia. The museum’s backers, led by the Freedom Forum, opted to close that building six years ago as work began at the new and more prominent Pennsylvania Avenue location.
Most of the media is lauding the Newseum for its emotionally moving nature, the stories it holds, and the principles it represents. However, it does have some detractors. As the [Blogger News Network](http://www.bloggernews.net/115358) points out, the Newseum is considered to be an over the top “pat on the back” by many observers, including several prominent reporters.
