Daily News’ post-elec­tion ‘Nope’ front page be­comes in­ter­net sen­sa­tion

The Star (St. Lucia) - - INTERNATIONAL - By Bill Hutchin­son

The cover of the Daily News’ Nov. 5 edi­tion has proven to be a hit. The Daily News’ post­elec­tion front page fea­tur­ing the iconic poster from Pres­i­dent Obama’s 2008 cam­paign but with the word “nope” re­plac­ing “hope” be­came an in­stant in­ter­net sen­sa­tion.

The News “wood” spread like wild fire on so­cial me­dia, retweeted scores of times and shown on CNN’s elec­tion cov­er­age.

The cover her­alded the Repub­li­cans’ seizure of con­trol in the Se­nate and used the styl­ized red, white, blue ver­sion of Obama’s por­trait, as in his 2008 cam­paign.

“Win for @NY­Dai­lyNews,” Jim Roberts of the news in­for­ma­tion web­site Mash­able tweeted to his 150,000 fol­low­ers.

“News­pa­pers can still say it all — front page of @ NY­Dai­lyNews!” added ABC News for­eign ed­i­tor Jon Wil­liams to his 34,000 Twit­ter fol­low­ers.

The cover, which spoofed Pres­i­dent Obama’s iconic ‘Hope’ 2008 cam­paign poster, was retweeted dozens

of times.
