Belgium US Election Hedging Bets
A spread of Belgian newspapers is shown in Brussels on the morning after the U.S. elections, Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012. Faced with U.S. election results coming after printing deadlines, Belgian newspapers found novel ways around the problem. Het Laatste Nieuws, middle left, produced two front pages, asking readers to "pick your cover." One was headlined "It's Obama" while another, folded inside, read "It's Romney." De Morgen, bottom right, cut its front page in half, with one side saying "Mitt Romney President" and the other "Barack Obama President." On the Romney side it said "Please turn quickly if Obama is the winner." Le Soir's front page, top left, screamed "Obama," followed on the left with "Has Lost ,read page 2" and on the right "Has Won, read page 3." Sports newspaper La Derniere Heure, top right, left the face blank and instead provided a scan code to download the winner onto a cellphone. (AP Photo/Virginia Mayo)
