North American Post (#25)

Originally called the Hokubei Hochi/North American Times, the North American Post was founded in 1902. Like other Japanese community newspapers, it shut down operations in 1942 due to the World War II forced removal and incarceration. On June 5, 1946, it resumed operations and is now the largest and oldest Japanese-language newspaper published in the Pacific Northwest.`
