Who, or what, is Capitol Hill Blue?

Capitol Hill Blue is a non-partisan, take-no-prisoners political news site launched in October 1994 by newspaperman Doug Thompson. That makes us the oldest surviving news site on the Internet. But don’t take our word for it. Go to Google and see if you can find anything older. Bet you can’t.

Are you a blog?

Good God no. We’re working journalists, not a group of malcontents who sit in front of our computers in our underwear. We work for a living and have lives.  CHB also supplements its news with subscription content from syndicates and news services.

What are your politics?

Politics? We don’t need no stinkin’ politics. We believe it is the job of newsies to report the news, not be influenced by political beliefs or bias.

We subscribe to legendary Chicago newspaperman Finley Peter Dunne’s belief that it is the role of a newspaperman to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.”
