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 superweapon 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 naming of the newspaper is inconsistent: on Fallout 3 loading screens it is called "Capital Post" (with an 'a') whereas in-game it is called "Capitol Post" (with an 'o').


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.

Behind the scenes
