The New York Times (NYT, also called the Times), is an American newspaper based in New York City. It is printed around the world. It is owned by The New York Times Company, which owns and makes 15 other newspapers.

The New York Times was first printed in 1851. Its motto is "All the news that's fit to print".[6] The New York Times has a national list of bestselling books, in several categories.

As of 2010, only two United States newspapers were bought by more readers than the Times. These newspapers are the Wall Street Journal and USA Today.[7]


In 1871, a series of Times exposés brings down the corrupt Tweed Ring and ends its domination of City Hall. William Tweed is convicted of stealing millions of dollars from New York City taxpayers.
