'Best Revival of the Liberal Media’
Last month, the Washington City Paper, the most prominent “alternative weekly” in the nation’s capital, did its first “Best of D.C.” edition in 15 years. In addition to “bests” as voted on by its readers, it included a group of special categories made up and filled by its editors.
I am very proud to report that my newspaper, the Falls Church News-Press, the paper that I founded 17 years ago, own and edit, was named by the City Paper the “Best Remnant of the Liberal Media.”
I’ve told friends I want that as the epitaph on my tombstone, though there’s no rush. When we began touting the paper as “the most progressive newspaper in Virginia” awhile ago, there were no challengers. We pride ourselves as being in the epicenter of where Virginia is shifting from a “red” to a “blue” state, something confirmed by where the votes came from that tipped the balance to Democrats in the last three statewide elections.
