Newspaper museum set to open — is “newspaper museum” redundant?

newseumOK, it was a cheap shot. But it was a funny cheap shot! Actually the Newseum focuses on the entire news industry: The $450 million Newseum, in Washington DC, has seven levels with 250,000 square feet of exhibition space, including 15 theaters, 14 galleries, two broadcast studios, 100 original videos and more than 130 interactive stations.

Maybe it wasn’t such a cheap shot given the news that the McClatchy chain may write off half of the $4.4 billion it paid for Knight Ridder a year-and-a-half ago. At the rate things are going the Newseum may want to consider hiring a few paleontologists.
