Good Old Staunch Publications One Can Mostly Trust

My first step in my Personal News Literacy Project is to compose a list of established newspapers that have been around for over 20 years and have won some awards (i.e. a Pulitzer or two). I think the age criteria is important because it shows that the publication has established a reputation – maybe good maybe bad – but a reputation. By 20 years readers will know what kind of newspaper it is. And, if the newspaper has gotten a significant award or two, it shows that professional peers have pointed out some excellent journalism with much consideration.

I’ll be adding to the list ad hoc from now on. Please feel free to let me know who I’ve missed at any time. Here we go!

Here are the newspapers that I see posted often on Facebook who meet the criteria above:

New York Times

Washington Post

The Wall Street Journal

The Guardian

Los Angeles Times

Here are newspapers in Wikipedia’s List of Newspapers in the US, Top 25 Newspapers in the US (listed by average circulation) that fit the criteria above:

San Jose Mercury News

New York Daily News

The Chicago-Sun Times

The Denver Post

Chicago Tribune

The Dallas Morning News


Orange County Register

The Star-Ledger

Tampa Bay Times

The Philadelphia Inquirer

The Star Tribune

The Boston Globe
