Newseum.org - http://www.newseum.org
This is the web site for a museum that is all about news. You'll find a collection of some of the best winning pictures that get into the news, editorial cartoons, and a behind-the-scenes look at how newspapers work in the Cyber Newseum. Explore the Holocaust, Berlin Wall, War Stories, and Stories of the Century exhibits. [Note: There is a note that the museum will close in March so that it can move to Washington, D.C. I assume the web site will remain active.]
