The Washington Examiner is pulling an unusual move. For the first time ever, the publication will run a special afternoon edition of the paper updating readers on news about the death of Osama bin Laden to be distributed at 4pm ET today around the city.
The digital copy of the paper is available here.
“Extras are in the finest tradition of American newspapering, our newsroom’s outstanding continuing web coverage notwithstanding,” said Michael Phelps, Publisher. “Steve Smith and his team outdid themselves today on this important and continuing story.”
The Washington area hasn’t had an afternoon newspaper in 30 years.
