Portland Press Herald Ignores 9/11 Anniversary but Celebrates Muslim Event on Front Page

It seems that the editors at the Portland Press Herald thought it newsworthy to run front-page coverage about the end of Ramadan - a celebration of the end of the Muslim holy month in "A show of faith and forgiveness", The Portland Press Herald, September 11, 2010.  It apparently didn't feel the need to mention the ninth anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks.  Hmmmmm.  Read some of the news coverage the Portland Press Herald managed to get for it's efforts:

 "Portland Press Herald Apologizes For 9/11 Ramadan Coverage", WMTW.com, September 13, 2010.

"Press Herald Publisher Apologizes for 9/11 Ramadan Coverage", Maine Public Broadcasting Network, September 13, 2010.

"Maine Paper Apologizes For 9/11 Ramadan Coverage", CBS News, September 13, 2010.

"Maine Paper Apologizes for 9/11 Ramadan Coverage", Boston.com, September 13, 2010.

"Newspaper apologizes to those offended", The Portland Press Herald, September 13, 2010.
