Washington Post Federal Coverage

If you want to analyze who at the Washington Post and its sister publications cover the federal government, read The Post’s online Fed Page for a few days. It’s a portal connecting to all federal content produced by the uber-Post brand.

About 27 percent of all jobs in the Washington, D.C. metro region are federal, so there’s great focus on the needs of viewsers who are federal employees. The Fed Page features blogs, interactive features and discussions about federal happenings, worker issues and federal contracting.

But The Fed Page’s overall approach is wider. You can glean how The Post views and conducts coverage of most, if not all, things federal, national and political.

Headlined are federal items from throughout the online and print entities of The Post, including news and features. Examples: Widespread Complaints About a Rudderless Government, Immigration to Go Paperless and “It’s All Come Down to This. Yes, a Quiz.” The last item is a political quiz including brain twisters such as what’s the first and last name of “Joe the Plumber.”

Down at the niche level, The Fed Page typically links to specialty publications including Government Executive, Federal Computer Week and Government Computer News.
