(Update) Which major newspapers all but omitted Obama's 'sorry' from its front page?

As noted by Playbook, Friday's front page of the New York Times offered only the smallest mention that President Obama said on Thursday he was "sorry" for millions of Americans losing their insurance policies as a result of Obamacare's implementation. The news was featured as nearly an afterthought, below the fold, under what could only vaguely be considered a headline.

Update: Capital New York has comment from the Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson on her paper's design decision:

"The mental health story [which appeared above the apology blurb] was ours exclusively and affects millions of people," executive editor Jill Abramson told Capital in a statement given to us through a spokesperson.

"The Obama story was an 'every one has it' story," Abramson said, though she allowed that it is "an important development in the ongoing controversy over the messy rollout of the HCA, which we cover very aggressively.

"The politics story is important, but in this case how a change in policy will affect people seemed more so," she added.

Another major paper made similar choice.

See if you can find Obama's "sorry" on the front page of... the Wall Street Journal (Hint: it's on the left side).
