Best Billionaire Media Vanity Project

The Examiner

The Examiner is the media toy of mogul Philip Anschutz, a politically conservative risk-taker who believes publishing success lies in a daily that takes less time to consume than publications like the Washington Post. Anschutz’s D.C. product does well on the news front, occasionally scoring startling local scoops. On the business front, the results are less certain; the enduring image of the Examiner’s strategy is a plastic-sheathed publication sitting untouched on the front stoop of a majestic Northwest home.
