NY Daily News gets mad kudos for 120-word Cosby headline – and they deserve it

Known for its bombastic front page covers, almost always left-leaning, did the New York Daily News finally get one right?

The Daily News’ cover for Thursday centered on the arrest of iconic comedian Bill Cosby for an alleged 2004 sexual assault, with a “jaw-dropping” emphasis on the number of women who’ve accused Cosby of sexual abuse.

The reaction on social media to the cover was heavy on praise, although, oddly, former President Bill Clinton’s name kept coming up.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
