“Dewey defeats Truman” was an incorrect front page headline when Truman became president

Posted by

This happened on November 3rd, 1948, as the Chicago Daily Tribune had to send to print before all votes were counted.

Truman himself was handed a copy while on his way to Washington. And actually other newspapers also had similar mistakes, but at least not on the front page.
