Norwegian paper offers online version without info from mass murder trial

The trial against the Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik started today and the media coverage, especially in Norway, is massive. The online news sites are filled with interviews, articles, photos and video coverage. The events that took place on July 22 this year in Oslo and Utøya were nothing short of horrific. For many people in Norway, there may of course be a number of reasons why you would not want to read the detailed reports from the trial, including photos and videos of the murderer. Dagbladet.no solved that issue by offering a “trial free” button, i. e. a version of the site that is stripped from any articles of the murder trial. By clicking the button “front page without the July 22 event” you get a completely different front page.

Here are the screen shots of the regular site and the special version.
