A friend of FOX 5 photographer Van Applegate told him she was handed a copy of the fake edition at Union Station Wednesday morning.
In a tweet from its public relations Twitter account, the Washington Post said was looking into the matter.
“There are fake print editions of The Washington Post being distributed around downtown DC, and we are aware of a website attempting to mimic The Post’s. They are not Post products, and we are looking into this,” the Washington Post tweeted.
