Washington News

Sometimes Washington D.C. is called "The News Capital of the World" for obvious reasons. The district has also been home to many publication houses. The city also holds hundreds of conferences, fundraising dinners, museum exhibitions and other such events each year which keep the capital in the news. The city is home to more than 149 foreign embassies who often organize cultural events to bring their citizens together.
