About The New York Times in brief
The New York Times is an American daily newspaper based in New York City. Founded in 1851, the paper has since won 130 Pulitzer Prizes, more than any other. It is ranked 18th in the world by circulation and 3rd in the U.S. by readership. The Times is organized into the following sections: News, Editorials, Op-Ed, New York, Business, Sports, Arts, Science, Styles, Home, Travel, and other features. On Sundays, the Times is supplemented by the Sunday Review, The New York. Times Book Review, The New. York Times Magazine, and T: The New-York Times Style Magazine. It has been governed by the Sulzberger family since 1896, through a dual-class share structure after its shares became publicly-traded. In 1852, the newspaper started a western division, The Times of California, which arrived whenever a mail boat from New York docked in California. The newspaper’s influence grew in 1870 and 1871, when it published a series of exposés on William Tweed, leader of the city’s Democratic Party. In the 1880s, The. Times transitioned from supporting Republican Party candidates in its editorials to becoming more politically independent. While this move cost the paper a portion of its readership among its more progressive and liberal readers, it eventually regained its ground within a few years. The paper’s motto, ‘All the News That’s Fit to Print’, appears in the upper left-hand corner of the front page.
The main office of the Times was attacked during the New York city draft riots in 1863. On July 13, 1863, co-founder Henry Raymond stopped the rioters with Gatling guns, early machine guns, one of which he manned himself. On September 14, 1857, the. newspaper officially shortened its name to The New.-York Times. The hyphen in the city name was dropped on December 1, 1896. The Times was initially published by Raymond, Jones & Company. Early investors in the company included Edwin B. Morgan, Christopher Morgan, and Edward B. Wesley. In 1891, Charles Ransom Miller and Charles Miller died in a car crash. In 1896, the company was taken over by A. G. Sulzbergers, the fourth and fifth generation of the family to head the paper. The company is publicly traded, and is owned by The NY Times Company, which is a publicly traded company. In 2008, the NY Times began publishing a Sunday edition to offer daily coverage of the Civil War. It was one of the last newspapers to adopt color photography, especially on the front pages. In 2010, the New- York Times became the first newspaper to offer a Sunday-only edition of The Sunday Review, a weekly book review, and a weekly opinion-columnsmagazine. In 2012, the Sunday review became the Sunday Times Magazine. The Sunday Times has added special weekly sections on various topics supplementing the regular news, editorials, sports and features.
