The Capitol Post was a pre-War newspaper with offices in Washington, D.C.'s L'Enfant plaza.


Several of its articles can be read at the facility, dealing with pre-War news such as the disbanding of the United Nations, the annexation of Canada, the Anchorage Reclamation, the new super weapon of the U.S. Army under development or the Pint-Sized Slasher. A reporter of the company can be encountered in the Anchorage Reclamation simulation in Operation: Anchorage, taking the picture which was to become the template for the Anchorage War Memorial.

  • The newspaper began in the year 1877. [2]


The Capitol Post building appears in Fallout 3. Three issues of the newspaper can be seen on a loading screen in the same game and an American war correspondent from the newspaper can be encountered in the add-on Operation: Anchorage.
