This site is a staple for those living in the northwest region of the U.S. Although the front page leans toward news from Washington State exclusively, national and world news has a small section toward the top of the landing page.

Seattle is the largest city in the region, and the web site's reach is farther than most localized sites. This may be the reason for the more serious tone this front page conveys. The site boasts the newspaper's 2012 Pulitzer Prize win for best investigative reporting as well.

Not until readers page down to the very bottom of page one is there any mention of entertainment or celebrity gossip. Even in the trending topics section, there is no mention of anything related to features.
