Salem Statesman Journal

The Statesman Journal is a prominent daily newspaper published in Salem, Oregon. The Statesmen was founded in 1851 by Asahel Bush; the Statesmen is the second oldest newspaper in Oregon. The Oregon Statesman merged with the Capital Journal to form the present newspaper. The Oregon Statement was published as a result to another paper, the Oregonian. The Oregonian is a Whig-controlled Portland paper. The name of the paper was changed to the Salem Statesman and became less of a politically-sided newspaper. In 1866, the Statesman ceased publication, only to resume in 1869 under the new name of The Statesman and Unionist. The Statesman Journal is distributed in Salem, Keizer, and a great deal of the mid-Willamette Valley.
