Within two hours, MSNBC had already published a memorial video and an article on the first wave of Jobs memorials (along with a Storify that, unlike the article, has been updated several times).
The day after, the front page has four stories: an obituary; a Today Show tribute to his other start-up, Pixar; an invitation for readers to share their reaction and a video of Steve Wozniak's reaction. Their PhotoBlog also published a great collection of fans' tributes to Jobs.
MSNBC can't be faulted for not moving on a breaking news story. We'll see how well they do in the coming days, when they can offer more elaborate journalism. Come back to this post, as it will be updated as MSNBC's coverage expands.
The Westboro Baptist Church has targeted soldiers' funerals, which culminated in a Supreme Court ruling in March saying their right was constitutionally protected. In the past, they've gotten a lot of media coverage, for better or for worse. It'll be interesting to see what MSNBC does this time.
Westboro aside, MSNBC has also put a slideshow on the front page. Below that, there are links to the stories they've been able to publish less than 24 hours after the announcement.
Update(11:02 a.m., 10/09/11): Over the past 24 hours, MSNBC has slowly removed its Steve Jobs' tributes and articles from the home page. It continues to update its memorial article, though.
Westboro hasn't been covered much since the article I mentioned Friday. A search on Google News suggests other outlets have passed on extra coverage for the time being, probably because of a lack of new information to publish.
Update(4:39 p.m., 10/09/11): Through its partnership with Entrepreneur Magazine (the magazine has many), MSNBC has published several more articles on Jobs online, long after he's stopped trending and the memorials have left the homepage. One is the memorial article in the last update. The other is "Why Entrepreneurs Love Steve Jobs."
