Newspaper Removes 'Democrat' From Name

     WARRENTON, Va. (AP) - The Fauquier Times-Democrat is changing its name due to the increasingly divisive political landscape.
 
     In an editorial published Wednesday, the newspaper announced it would become known as the Fauquier Times. The editorial said having the word "Democrat" in the newspaper's name in such partisan political times "is no longer a very astute business decision." 
 
     The newspaper is located in Warrenton, about 45 miles outside of Washington. It's published twice a week, on Wednesdays and Fridays
 
     The newspaper traces its roots back nearly 200 years to the Palladium of Liberty, which began publishing in 1817. In 1905, the newspaper became the Fauquier Democrat. In 1989, it changed its name to the Fauquier Times-Democrat to more closely identify with the Times Community News, the family-owned chain that owned the paper.
