A US newspaper has apologised for failing to include a picture of Hillary Clinton on its front page after she officially became the first woman to ever clinch the Democratic nomination for president amid a backlash against media reports.
Most major US newspapers featured her “smashing the glass ceiling” on their front pages Wednesday - though the speech given by her husband featured more prominently. It prompted a Twitter outrage.
The ex-President, Bill Clinton, had been the keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention, essaying in detail their relationship since meeting in the early 1970s. Those defending the decisions argue Hillary only appeared via a video - not on stage - and later editions were changed.
But when Seattle Times was called out, it responded that it “blew it” and it “should’ve shown Hillary”.
