Emphasis by the Washington Examiner has always focused on its paper product and not its website. Those days are gone, ladies.
Just a couple months after the Examiner touched up its website, it has redone the whole thing altogether. Images are bigger and sharper, topics are more compartmentalized and local news blogs have been given more visibility. It no longer looks like one of those simple text Google ads.
As we noted in today’s Morning Chatter, the recently hired Paul Bedard has a new column at the Examiner and they’re playing it up on the homepage. A quarter way down, there’s a box with an image of Bedard that you can click to subscribe to his column. Scroll a tad further and there’s an even bigger box with a caricature of Bedard that when clicked, takes you directly to his blog.
Overall, the site gets a B+. It’s a vast improvement from their previous Windows ’95 version.
