I’m indebted to Martin Stabe (and indeed, Matt Mullenweg) for spotting that the Black Country Express and Star website is built in WordPress. Further evidence, if it were needed (and I’m not sure it were), that there’s very little you can’t do with WordPress. I’d be interested in a write-up of the plugins and hacks they’ve implemented to get it looking so newspaper-y, if anyone’s reading this…

As far as I am aware, the Shropshire Star has been running on WordPress for a good year, I think they must be part of the same group as the Express & Star.
Am I not right in thinking that Le Monde is built on WordPress?
Um, not quite, its just their blogging service. But its still quite impressive: http://www.lemonde.fr/web/blogs/0,39-0,48-0,0.html
Le Monde’s subscriber blogs are based on WPMU; but I think the main Le Monde site is still Vignette (judging by all the commas in the URLs).
