Wall Times Post Gazette

Today's desk Dilbert calendar had a strip where Dilbert got a call from a business reporter for the Wall Times Post Gazette.

I suppose that that name is not just a string of newspaperish-sounding name components but a deliberate composite of several well-known newspapers. I think I recognise the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the Washington Post, but I'm stuck on the “Gazette” part. Any suggestions?

(Also, any corrections on the other parts? For example, I considered whether the LA Times might have been meant, but I get the impression that the New York Times is more well-known.)
