A New Newspaper Shows Up in DC: The Rock Creek Free Press

On Connecticut Avenue today I noticed a bastard news dispenser and picked up its paper: Rock Creek Free Press. The paper bills itself as "A fiecely independent newspaper."

Its front page echoes libertarian themes. Here are some headlines:

Liberty Dollar Company Raided by Feds

CIA Hides Torture Tapes

International Regulation of Dietary Supplements Looms

US Claims Right to Kidnap British Citizens

NIE Exposes War Party

Sounds good, but then the paper goes off the rails by running a page one article featuring former Italian president Francesco Cossiga alleging that 9/11 was "an inside job." Does anyone really think that the CIA would take down both towers of the WTC, bomb the Pentagon and try to hit the Capitol? No.

But Rock Creek Free Press is a fun read otherwise.
