Oregon's first newspaper, the Spectator, made use of the first newspaper printing press in the western United States.

Newspapers no longer in print[edit]

The earliest newspaper in Oregon was the Oregon Spectator, published in Oregon City from 1846 by a press association headed by George Abernethy.[2] This was joined in November 1850 by the Milwaukie Western Star and two partisan papers – the Whig Oregonian, published in Portland beginning on December 4, 1850, and the Democratic Statesman, launched in Oregon City in March 1851.[2] The latter paper would subsequently move to Salem, and it continues today as the Statesman-Journal.
