Welcome to McClatchyDC.com, the new website weve created to highlight the work of McClatchys journalists in Washington and around the globe.
Our previous website was created more than seven years ago, an absolute epoch in Internet time.
This new version allows us to give more prominence to our work. We hope it will make your visit more rewarding. Stories, interactive graphics, videos, photos, and cartoons will be easier to find. We have a new fleet of blogs on national security and defense, the economy, data and world events.
Navigation is simpler. And in time youll see in-depth digital journalism you wont be able to get elsewhere.
Were implementing another change too. Beginning immediately, we are no longer allowing readers to comment on our articles anonymously. You will be required to log in using a Facebook account. Were doing this to ensure decorum and to cut down on the nastiness that sometimes hits our site. (To make sure we see every comment on the new website, we are asking that all feedback related to it be posted here rather than as a comment on this article or others.)
This redesign, though, is more than just cosmetic. It reflects McClatchys commitment to provide our readers with meaningful journalism that explains the government and world affairs. This relaunch is the beginning of a digital transformation that extends McClatchys reporting so it will be multidimensional everywhere you rely on it -- on your computer, on your mobile phone or on your tablet.
Were proud of our independent brand of journalism and were excited that you want us to inform and challenge you anywhere, anytime.
