'''''The Mesa Times''''' is a newspaper published by the Black Mesa Research Facility and distributed among the Black Mesa Research Facility. The paper most likely gives information on current and upcoming events within the facility, along with some from the outside world to keep members up to date, since many live within the facility and rarely take leave.

==Overview==

Scientists can be seen reading it at the start of ''Blue Shift''; one while waiting for his laundry to be done at the very start of the game, and another later on a Black Mesa Transit System platform near Area 3 Security Facilities. It is unknown if it is an outside publication or exclusively made by the company for its personnel.

==Trivia==

*''The Mesa Times'' is likely a reference to the British newspaper ''WikipediaThe Times|The Times''. The title is also written in Times, created for the same newspaper.
*The Combine also issues a newspaper for the City 17 inhabitants, named ''The Terminal''.
