    Great, accurate news reporting from America’s most important city. Thoughtful editorial choices and writing. First thing I read at 6 a.m. (West Coast time). ONE ISSUE THOUGH: Please, PLEASE put the YEAR in your dateline. Omitting the year date makes research cumbersome and time consuming. (Unless you have some reason you DON’T WANT people to use your newspaper for research. ???) Just add the year date to your dateline so I can rate you 5 STARS, like you deserve!
  • Read it every day

    Fresh news you can’t get in the NYT
  • Heavy on national politics, weak sports and world news

    I’ve lived in the D.C. area most of my life and have grown up with it being our de facto paper. As I’ve traveled internationally and have a more global awareness, I find the Post very centrally focused on National politics. As a local sports fan, I’ve also long been frustrated by the lack of basic, detailed local team coverage; other than high schools, which isn’t really the point. Case in point is Michael Wilbon who spent decades with the Post mostly praising his hometown Chicago teams and denigrating the quality of the local teams who’s paper he wrote for. Similarly, Tony Kornheiser is a brilliant and humerous journalist but his writing was all about creating a product that melded sports with politics, everyday life, humorous observations, etc. Kornheiser and Wilbon parlayed that into a national product that’s very good and successful. But that’s what every sportswriter at the Post tries to be and it leaves a void in just barebones, local team coverage. Fans need to go to sources like Hogshaven, Riggo’s Rag, Bleacher report, etc to get much in-depth that isn’t about his national brand building. And most of the paper has that bent. It’s as if they’re all Rhodes scholars who have to be above anything pedestrian like actual local news and sports and anything in-depth internally is usually syndicated. They’re all shooting for Pulitzer’s or national recognition vs just doing a sold job for D.C. Yes, there are some who get this but this is the general culture of the Post. I go to he BBC for internal news, the City Paper for anything in-depth locally and any other source for local sports.
  • A great News Source!

  • Getting better

    Wanted to give 3 1/2 not 4. Subscription is a good thing. I saw other comments complaining. What ? People write stories and people work as journalists and people create this newspaper. And, people work in other newspapers ! 1/27/16 : Getting better ! 2/5/16 : Much better ! Need more in-depth for Business/economic/International news. 6/14/16 : Getting your adult teeth ! Good website, good navigation; good overall; 4.5 5/4/2017: wonderful upscale change ! 5 / 5 ! 8/18/2018 : Great !
  • It's the Washington Post which is good and bad

    By Msk4804
    Well the app is the Washington Post. So that means it has some worthwhile articles and some lousy ones. I'm not in love with the paywall but I understand why they have it. Frankly in these uncertain times the Washington Post is an essential bastion of our democratic society. Every time Trump bashes a media outlet you know they are doing their job, and the Post gets bashed enough that you have to know it’s got our country’s back.
  • The best reporting since WATERGATE...

    Since we’ve heard that comparison so often, let’s give credit to the new Bob and Carls who have blossomed under Marty Baron. First read everyday.
