U.S. Major Dailies provides access to the five most respected U.S. national and regional newspapers: The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and the Wall Street Journal.

  • Chicago Tribune (1849-present) – keeping readers informed of the latest news from the Chicago area, the nation and the world every day. The Tribune has a reputation for investigative and public service journalism, earning 24 Pulitzer Prizes since 1932.
  • Los Angeles Times (1881-present) – the perspective of the American West, lauded for its coverage of immigration, entertainment, and environmental issues.
  • The New York Times (1851-present) – the paper of record in the U.S., best known for its analysis of news, issues and social changes.
  • Wall Street Journal (1889-present) – the single most authoritative source of global and national business reporting.
  • Washington Post (1877-present) – has distinguished itself through its reporting on international politics and policy, security and all facets of the U.S. government.
