In this lesson, from the New York Times Learning Network, students explore how the "New York Times" has represented presidential victories on its front page throughout the 20th century. They compare and contrast historic "Times" front pages with the front page from December 14, 2000, that declared George W. Bush the 43rd President of the United States.
