Editorial

You hold in your hands something that is both reassuringly familiar and strikingly fresh. The Washington Examiner that millions of readers came to know and trust during the last seven years goes forward in the digital era in a new configuration that is well-suited to produce compelling reporting and commentary about the people, events and policies in the nation's capital.

The news will be delivered straight and the views with clarity and logic. And always with admiration for the intelligence, common sense and patriotism found in every precinct of this nation.

Based in Washington but with a profound appreciation for the values and traditions that built the country, washingtonexaminer.com and the Washington Examiner print weekly are produced by an experienced team of correspondents and investigative reporters who are dedicated to delivering the news without fear or favor. A distinguished staff of opinion writers and columnists provide insightful commentary on issues affecting national legislation and policy.

The influential readership served by the Washington Examiner is deeply involved in government, community philanthropy, public policy, politics, non-profit advocacy, academia and business from Main Street to Wall Street. The web site and the weekly print edition combine web-only reporting and commentary throughout the day, amplified by Washington Examiner-branded digital and social media. The website reaches millions of daily visitors, while the print edition is delivered to 45,000 influence leaders in Washington and to legislative and executive offices in the 50 state capitals.

The journalism that was once seen as a workman's craft has more recently been viewed as an elite white-collar profession. But for the editors, reporters and commentators at the Washington Examiner, journalism is a passion and a life's work that is never satisfied until all the facts are on the table and the great diversity of thought - notably the views of independents, libertarians and conservatives, who often get short shrift in the mainstream press -- is fully reflected in this great republic's daily debate. Here at the Washington Examiner, the news will be delivered straight and the views with clarity and logic. And always with admiration for the intelligence, common sense and patriotism found in every precinct of this nation, from its capital to its heartland.
