The previous headquarters of The Washington Post on 15th Street NW in Washington, DC Demolition of the previous headquarters in April 2016

The Washington Post is generally regarded as one of the leading daily American newspapers, along with The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal The Post has distinguished itself through its political reporting on the workings of the White House, Congress, and other aspects of the US government It is one of the two daily broadsheets published in Washington DC, the other being its smaller rival The Washington Times

Unlike The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post does not print an edition for distribution away from the East Coast In 2009, the newspaper ceased publication of its National Weekly Edition, which combined stories from the week's print editions, due to shrinking circulation The majority of its newsprint readership is in District of Columbia and its suburbs in Maryland and Northern Virginia

The newspaper's weekday and Saturday printings include the following sections:

  • Main section, containing the front page, national and international news, business, politics, and editorials and opinions
  • Metro section, containing local news
  • Style section, with feature writing on pop culture, politics, fine and performing arts, film, fashion, and gossip, along with advice columns and comics
  • Sports section
  • Classified advertising

Sunday editions largely include the weekday sections as well as Outlook opinion, Arts, Travel, Comics, TV Week, and the Washington Post Magazine The Sunday Style section differs slightly from the weekday Style section; it is in a tabloid format, and it houses the reader-written humor contest The Style Invitational

Additional weekly sections appear on weekdays: Health & Science on Tuesday, Food on Wednesday, Local Living home and garden on Thursday, and Weekend, with details about upcoming events in the local area, on Friday The latter two are in a tabloid format

The newspaper is one of a few US newspapers with foreign bureaus, located in Beirut, Berlin, Beijing, Bogota, Cairo, Hong Kong, Islamabad, Jerusalem, Kabul, London, Mexico City, Moscow, Nairobi, New Delhi, Paris, and Tokyo In November 2009, it announced the closure of its US regional bureaus—Chicago, Los Angeles and New York—as part of an increased focus on "political stories and local news coverage in Washington" The newspaper has local bureaus in Maryland Annapolis, Montgomery County, Prince George's County, Southern Maryland and Virginia Alexandria, Fairfax, Loudoun County, Richmond, and Prince William County

As of May 2013, its average weekday circulation was 474,767, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, making it the seventh largest newspaper in the country by circulation, behind USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Daily News, and the New York Post While its circulation like that of almost all newspapers has been slipping, it has one of the highest market-penetration rates of any metropolitan news daily

For many decades, the Post had its main office at 1150 15th Street NW This real estate remained with Graham Holdings when the newspaper was sold to Jeff Bezos' Nash Holdings in 2013 Graham Holdings sold 1150 15th Street along with 1515 L Street, 1523 L Street, and land beneath 1100 15th Street for US$159 million in November 2013 The Washington Post continued to lease space at 1150 L Street NW In May 2014, The Washington Post leased the west tower of One Franklin Square, a high-rise building at 1301 K Street NW in Washington, DC The newspaper moved in to their new offices December 14, 2015


Founding and early period

The Washington Post building in 1948

The newspaper was founded in 1877 by Stilson Hutchins 1838–1912 and in 1880 added a Sunday edition, becoming the city's first newspaper to publish seven days a week In 1889, Hutchins sold the newspaper to Frank Hatton, a former Postmaster General, and Beriah Wilkins, a former Democratic congressman from Ohio To promote the newspaper, the new owners requested the leader of the United States Marine Band, John Philip Sousa, to compose a march for the newspaper's essay contest awards ceremony Sousa composed "The Washington Post" It became the standard music to accompany the two-step, a late 19th-century dance craze, and remains one of Sousa's best-known works

In 1898, during the Spanish–American War, he Post printed Clifford K Berryman's classic illustration Remember the Maine, which became the battle-cry for American sailors during the War In 1902, Berryman published another famous cartoon in the Post—Drawing the Line in Mississippi This cartoon depicts President Theodore Roosevelt showing compassion for a small bear cub and inspired New York store owner Morris Michtom to create the teddy bear

Wilkins acquired Hatton's share of the newspaper in 1894 at Hatton's death After Wilkins' death in 1903, his sons John and Robert ran the Post for two years before selling it in 1905 to John Roll McLean, owner of the Cincinnati Enquirer During the Wilson presidency, the Post was credited with the "most famous newspaper typo" in DC history according to Reason magazine; the Post intended to report that President Wilson had been "entertaining" his future-wife Mrs Galt, but instead wrote that he had been "entering" Mrs Galt When John McLean died in 1916, he put the newspaper in trust, having little faith that his playboy son Edward "Ned" McLean could manage his inheritance Ned went to court and broke the trust, but, under his management, the newspaper slumped toward ruin

Meyer–Graham period

The newspaper was purchased in a bankruptcy auction in 1933 by the former Chairman of the Federal Reserve's board of governors, Eugene Meyer, who restored the newspaper's health and reputation In 1946, Meyer was succeeded as publisher by his son-in-law, Philip Graham

In 1954, the newspaper consolidated its position by acquiring and merging with its last morning rival, the Washington Times-Herald The combined paper was officially named The Washington Post and Times-Herald until 1973, although the Times-Herald portion of the nameplate became less and less prominent after the 1950s The merger left the Post with two remaining local competitors, the afternoon Washington Star Evening Star and The Washington Daily News, which merged in 1972 and folded in 1981 The Washington Times, established in 1982 by Unification Church leader Sun Myung Moon 1920–2012 under his company News World Communications, has been a local conservative rival with a circulation as of 2005 about one-seventh that of the Post In the late 2000s additional editorially conservative competition increased with the foundation of the tabloid-format daily The Washington Examiner by the new owners of the old Hearst paper, the "San Francisco Examiner" who engineered a swap trading the larger, more prosperous "San Francisco Chronicle" for the former Hearst "flagship" paper They also started several other tabloid-format "Examiners" in several American cities, including briefly for two years in "Baltimore Examiner" going against the 170-year-old "Baltimore Sun" The Washington Examiner ceased publication of its local newspaper on June 14, 2013, still publishing a weekly magazine and an online website focused on national politics

The Monday, July 21, 1969, edition, with the headline "'The Eagle Has Landed'‍—‌Two Men Walk on the Moon"

After Phil Graham's death in 1963, control of The Washington Post Company passed to Katharine Graham 1917–2001, his wife and Meyer's daughter Few women had run nationally prominent newspapers in the United States Katharine Graham described her own anxiety and lack of confidence based on her gender in her autobiography She served as publisher from 1969 to 1979 and headed The Washington Post Company into the early 1990s as chairman of the board and CEO After 1993, she retained a position as chairman of the executive committee until her death in 2001

Her tenure is credited with seeing the newspaper rise in national stature through effective investigative reporting after it began to live down its reputation as a house organ for the Kennedy and Johnson administration, working to ensure that The New York Times did not surpass its Washington reporting of the Pentagon Papers and Watergate scandal During this time, Katharine Graham also oversaw the Post company's diversification purchase of the for-profit education and training company Kaplan, Inc for $40 million in 1984 Twenty years later, Kaplan had surpassed the Post newspaper as the company's leading contributor to income, and by 2010 Kaplan accounted for more than 60% of the entire company revenue stream

Executive editor Ben Bradlee, a Kennedy loyalist, put the newspaper's reputation and resources behind reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, who, in a long series of articles, chipped away at the story behind the 1972 burglary of Democratic National Committee offices in the Watergate Hotel complex in Washington The Post's dogged coverage of the story, the outcome of which ultimately played a major role in the resignation of President Richard Nixon, won the newspaper a Pulitzer Prize in 1973

In 1972, the "Book World" section was introduced with Pulitzer Prize–winning critic William McPherson as its first editor It featured Pulitzer Prize–winning critics such as Jonathan Yardley and Michael Dirda, the latter of whom established his career as a critic at the Post In 2009, after 37 years, with great reader outcries and protest, The Washington Post Book World as a standalone insert was discontinued, the last issue being Sunday, February 15, 2009, along with a general reorganization of the paper, such as placing the Sunday editorials on the back page of the main front section rather than the "Outlook" section and distributing some other locally oriented "op-ed" letters and commentaries in other sections However, book reviews are still published in the Outlook section on Sundays and in the Style section the rest of the week, as well as online

In 1980, the newspaper published a dramatic story called "Jimmy's World", describing the life of an eight-year-old heroin addict in Washington, for which reporter Janet Cooke won acclaim and a Pulitzer Prize Subsequent investigation, however, revealed the story to be a fabrication The Pulitzer Prize was returned

Donald E Graham, Katharine's son, succeeded her as publisher in 1979 and in the early 1990s became both chief executive officer and chairman of the board He was succeeded in 2000 as publisher and CEO by Boisfeuillet Jones, Jr, with Graham remaining as chairman

Katharine Graham Weymouth served as publisher and chief executive officer until 2014, after Jeff Bezos took over ownership of the paper

Post-Graham period

In 1996, the newspaper established a website

In 2008, Marcus Brauchli replaced long-time executive editor Leonard Downie, Jr, serving publisher Katharine Weymouth

In 2010, the newspaper cited its local focus as a reason for running its first-ever front-page advertisement: the Capital One ad was being run to draw attention to the rebranding of Chevy Chase Bank, a bank Capital One bought in 2009 According to the Post's vice president of advertising, the page one advertisement is a "very local, useful-information-for-our-readers type of campaign"

In November 2012, Weymouth announced that Boston Globe editor Martin Baron would take over Brauchli's position on January 2, 2013

In 2013, the newspaper announced that it had plans to start charging frequent users of its website, with many exceptions such as for government employees browsing from work, and for students browsing from school

Jeff Bezos era 2013–present

Jeff Bezos purchased the newspaper for US$250 million in cash, completing the transaction on October 1, 2013, after announcing the planned acquisition on August 5, 2013 The newspaper is currently owned by Nash Holdings LLC, a holding company created for the acquisition and controlled by Bezos The sale included the Spanish language newspaper El Tiempo Latino, the Fairfax Times, The Gazette, the free daily newspaper Express, Southern Maryland Newspapers, and several newspapers covering and for the US armed forces Nash Holdings also took ownership of the Post printing plants in Springfield, Virginia; Fairfax County, Virginia; and Laurel, Maryland the "Comprint plant" Other assets included in the sale were the publications Apartment Showcase, Capital Business, Fashion Washington, Guide to Retirement Living Sourcebook, New Condominium Guide, and New Homes Guide; the internet sites TheCapitolDealcom and ServiceAlleycom; and Comprint Military Publications which included eight weekly newspapers covering local military bases, 10 annual guides to local military bases, and the Web sites DCMilitarycom, DCMilitaryEdcom, DCMilitaryFamLifecom Some real estate was also included in the deal, such as a one-story office building in St Mary's County, Maryland; warehouses in Fairfax County, Virginia; two tracts of land in Fairfax County, Virginia; leased office space in Charles County, Maryland, and in Montgomery County, Maryland; and 23 acres of undeveloped land in Charles County, Maryland

Not included in the sale were other Washington Post Company assets, including the Washington Post Company's downtown office building, the Post's Robinson Terminal facilities in Alexandria, Virginia; Post-Newsweek Stations; Cable ONE a Phoenix, Arizona-based Internet and cable service provider; independent web-based media assets such as Slate Group Slate magazine and its sister video magazine, Slate V, The Root, and Foreign Policy; social media marketing company Social Code; home healthcare and hospice provider Celtic Healthcare; and the energy parts supplier Forney Corporation After the completion of the sale, a press release announced the name change of the Washington Post Company to Graham Holdings Company the change was made effective on November 29, 2013

In early September 2013, Bezos summarized his approach for the news organization—with a vision that recreates "the 'daily ritual' of reading the Post as a bundle, not merely a series of individual stories"‍—‌although he indicated that the experience was more likely to be created on tablet computers and less likely "on the Web"

In August 2014, The Washington Post launched "Get There", an online personal finance section

In September 2014, Jeff Bezos announced his decision to appoint Frederick J Ryan Jr, founding President and CEO of Politico, to serve as Publisher and CEO of The Washington Post, effective October 1, 2014 This signaled Bezo's intent to shift The Post to a more digital focus with a strategy for expanding to a broader national and global readership Ryan has continued to invest in news and technology while reducing expenses in legacy print areas

Nash Holdings divested itself of a number of newspapers, and closed two others, in the summer of 2015 The company announced on June 12, 2015, that it would close the Montgomery Gazette and Prince George's Gazette effective June 18, 2015 The company also sold Comprint Military Publications and its Southern Maryland Newspapers group which consisted of the Maryland Independent, The Enterprise, the Calvert Recorder, and the Enquirer Gazette, and their associated Southern Maryland Newspaper Web site to Adams Publishing Group The company also said it would sell the Fairfax County Times to Whip It Media, a locally owned company founded by the Times' former general manager, Richard Whippen

In August 2014, the Post announced it will be moving into new headquarters space at One Franklin Square in December 2015 The company leased 242,000 square feet 22,500 m2 of space for 16 years on floors four through nine in the west tower and floors seven and eight in the east tower The building's owner agreed to an extensive build-out: Only about 10 percent of the space will be private offices, which required extensive demolition of interior walls and the removal of the walls on the seventh and eighth floor in the east tower so they joined with the floors on the west tower The newly joined space will create two 60,000-square-foot 5,600 m2 floors capable of accommodating 700 newsroom workers and software engineers The build-out includes four sets for live television filming, a new staircase between the seventh and eighth floors in each tower, and a two-story auditorium on the fourth floor The building's south-facing facade will also be altered to give Post workers floor-to-ceiling windows

Political stance


In the mid-1970s, conservatives called the newspaper "Pravda on the Potomac" because of its perceived left-wing bias in both reporting and editorials Since then, the appellation has been used by both liberal and conservative critics of the newspaper In 1963, FBI director J Edgar Hoover reportedly told President Lyndon B Johnson, "I don't have much influence with the Post because I frankly don't read it I view it like the Daily Worker"


In "Buying the War" on PBS, Bill Moyers noted 27 editorials supporting George W Bush's ambitions to invade Iraq National security correspondent Walter Pincus reported that he had been ordered to cease his reports that were critical of Republican administrations

On March 26, 2007, Chris Matthews said on his television program, "Well, The Washington Post is not the liberal newspaper it was, Congressman, let me tell you I have been reading it for years and it is a neocon newspaper" It has regularly published an ideological mixture of op-ed columnists, some of them left-leaning including EJ Dionne, Dana Milbank, Greg Sargent, and Eugene Robinson, and many on the right including George Will, Marc Thiessen, Michael Gerson and Charles Krauthammer

In a study published on April 18, 2007 by Yale professors Alan Gerber, Dean Karlan, and Daniel Bergan, citizens were given a subscription to either the conservative-leaning Washington Times or the liberal-leaning Washington Post to see the effect that media has on voting patterns Gerber had estimated based on his work that the Post slanted as much to the left as the Times did to the right Gerber found those who were given a free subscription of the Post were 8 percentage points more likely to vote for the Democratic candidate for governor than those assigned to the control group

In November 2007, the newspaper was criticized by independent journalist Robert Parry for reporting on anti-Obama chain e-mails without sufficiently emphasizing to its readers the false nature of the anonymous claims In 2009, Parry criticized the newspaper for its allegedly unfair reporting on liberal politicians, including Vice President Al Gore and President Barack Obama

Responding to criticism of the newspaper's coverage during the run-up to the 2008 presidential election, former Post ombudsman Deborah Howell wrote: "The opinion pages have strong conservative voices; the editorial board includes centrists and conservatives; and there were editorials critical of Obama Yet opinion was still weighted toward Obama" According to a 2009 publication, in the blogging community, liberal bloggers link to The Washington Post and The New York Times more often than other major newspapers; however, conservative bloggers also link predominantly to liberal newspapers

On March 8th, 2016, Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting published links to 16 purportedly negative articles on Bernie Sanders published in the on-line version of the paper during a period of 16 hours from March 6th to March 7th

It is the first paper to call for the prosecution of a source who led them to win a Pulitzer

Political endorsements

As Katharine Graham noted in her autobiography Personal History, the newspaper long had a policy of not making endorsements for political candidates However, since at least 2000, the newspaper has occasionally endorsed Republican politicians, such as Maryland Governor Robert Ehrlich In 2006, it repeated its historic endorsements of every Republican incumbent for Congress in Northern Virginia There have also been times when the Post has specifically chosen not to endorse any candidate, such as in the 1988 presidential election when it refused to endorse then-Governor Michael Dukakis or then-Vice President George H W Bush On October 17, 2008, the Post endorsed Barack Obama for President of the United States On October 25, 2012, the newspaper endorsed the re-election of Barack Obama On October 21, 2014, the newspaper endorsed 44 Democratic candidates versus 3 Republican candidates for the 2014 elections in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia On October 13th, 2016, it endorsed Hillary Clinton for the presidential election of that year

Influence of The Washington Times

In 1992, the PBS investigative news program Frontline suggested that the Post had moved to the right in response to its smaller, more conservative rival The Washington Times The program quoted Paul Weyrich, one of the founders of the conservative activist organization the Moral Majority, as saying "The Washington Post became very arrogant and they just decided that they would determine what was news and what wasn't news and they wouldn't cover a lot of things that went on And The Washington Times has forced the Post to cover a lot of things that they wouldn't cover if the Times wasn't in existence" In 2008, Thomas F Roeser, the founder of the conservative Internet website The Chicago Daily Observer, also mentioned competition from The Washington Times as a factor moving the Post to the right
