HOH knows some journos who basically live at the Newseum, but the museum on reporting and news coverage drew more than the writing nerds Monday.
A tipster spotted Rep. Brett Guthrie studying the Newseum’s outdoor display of newspapers sporting pictures of the late Osama bin Laden around 8:30 p.m.
“He wanted to see the Kentucky newspapers and looked at the Louisville Courier-Journal,” said the Kentucky Republican’s spokeswoman, Courtney Norris, in an email to HOH.
Norris said the graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point was sauntering down Pennsylvania Avenue with a constituent when he spotted a small crowd surrounding the display. He “wanted to be part of it,” she said.
Visitors get their first look at the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, which opened to the public on Monday, Oct. 6, 2014. The new memorial is located off Independence Ave. SW between the Rayburn House Office Building and HHS. Buy photo here.
