It's a situation that editors try their best to avoid, but the Washington Post and the New York Times ran the same front page photo on Thursday. The picture, positioned in a similar spot on the front pages of both papers, was taken by a photographer from Reuters, and showed the streets of Paterson, NJ flooded in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene. Of course, it's not the first time the two papers have done this, and it won't be the last.
