Topic - The Washington Examiner

The Washington Examiner is a free daily newspaper published in Springfield, Virginia, and distributed in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The newspaper was formerly distributed only in the suburbs of Washington, under the titles of Montgomery Journal, Prince George's Journal, and Northern Virginia Journal. The Examiner is owned by Denver billionaire Philip Anschutz, who purchased their parent company, Journal Newspapers Inc., in October 2004. On February 1, 2005, the paper's name changed to the Washington Examiner, and it adopted a logo and format similar to that of another newspaper owned by Anschutz, the San Francisco Examiner. Politico described the paper as "a megaphone for [Anschutz's] right-wing views on taxes, national security and President Barack Obama." The Examiner's parent company, Clarity Media Group, also owns the conservative opinion magazine The Weekly Standard. The Examiner co-sponsored the Republican presidential debate in Ames, Iowa on August 11, 2011. - Source: Wikipedia
