DC Metblogs - We reported earlier that photography at Union Station was getting to be a real challenge, even though photography in the incredibly beautiful Union Station is allowed both by Amtrak and by LaSalle Partners who maintains the space. Fox 5 News interviewed local photographer Joel Lawson about getting hassled when he pointed out that photography in Union Station was perfectly legal and acceptable. What was hilarious was Fox 5, while interviewing an Amtrak spokesman, was shut down by Union Station security for conducting an interview at Union Station. The security guard was unable to explain the policy, and refused to answer questions regarding the policy at the facility, and LaSalle Partners, who operate the mall portion of Union Station, wouldn’t respond in any way, shape or form to media inquiries.

DC Examiner - The Washington Times published its last Saturday print edition in a move the paper's top editor said reflects its shift toward becoming a multimedia news source. In notices to readers, the newspaper announced Saturday it plans to switch its print edition to a new Sunday through Friday schedule. Low circulation on Saturday prompted the move, said executive editor John Solomon. The Times' average daily circulation for the six-month period ended March 31 declined 6.47 percent to 93,775 from 100,257 a year ago, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations. Solomon said Saturday had the lowest circulation of the week, but he didn't have exact figures.
