The Falls Church News-Press is a weekly newspaper based in Falls Church, Virginia. The periodical was founded in 1991 by Owner/Editor-in-Chief Nicholas F. Benton, who has repeatedly referred to it in editorials as the City's paper of record. The periodical has its roots in his presentation to the local Chamber of Commerce, where, according to his interview with Equality Virginia, he presented his plan to advertise the local companies' services. He left that night with the Chamber’s endorsement and a list of 250 businesses to approach. One hundred thirty agreed to support the periodical with their advertising. With a stack of their postcards pledging support as collateral, Benton secured seed money to start the Falls Church News-Press
In April 2012, the White House denied the News-Press's request to attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner.
