The Baltimore Examiner was launched in 2006 by the Philip Anschutz-owned Clarity Media Group as part of a national chain that at the time included The San Francisco Examiner and The Washington Examiner. In contrast to the paid subscription Baltimore Sun, the Examiner was a free newspaper funded solely by advertisements. After being unable to find a buyer, Baltimore Examiner closed after its final publication on February 15, 2009.[3]

The managing editor of The Baltimore Examiner, along with several others from various national newspapers, started The Baltimore Post-Examiner in 2012.[4]

Conservative toneEdit

Editorially, The Examiner was often viewed as taking a more conservative tone than The Baltimore Sun.[5]
