Free wordpress theme for news or magazine blog

Just giving everyone a heads up on a free wordpress theme called SnapWire , the first free theme by Gabfire for the WordPress community. The theme used for https://blogwatch.tv.s175152.gridserver.com was purchased from GabFire. I really like the professional look which reminds me of the more popular online news sites. I didn’t know that Manila Times and https://blogwatch.tv.s175152.gridserver.com uses the same theme though. (just so you know, I didn’t copy Manila Times)
