The Guardian is a British national daily newspaper, known from 1821 to 1959 as the Manchester Guardian. Along with its sister papers The Observer and The Guardian Weekly, The Guardian is part of the Guardian Media Group, owned by The Scott Trust Limited. The Trust was created in 1936 "to secure the financial and editorial independence of The Guardian in perpetuity and to safeguard the journalistic freedom and liberal values of The Guardian free from commercial or political interference." The Scott Trust became a limited company in 2008, with a constitution to maintain the same protections for The Guardian. Profits are reinvested in journalism rather than to the benefit of an owner or shareholders.
The Guardian is edited by Katharine Viner, who succeeded Alan Rusbridger in 2015. In 2013, The Guardian's print edition had an average daily circulation of roughly 189,000 copies in the country, behind The Daily Telegraph and The Times, and ahead of The Independent. The newspaper has a UK online edition as well as two international websites, Guardian Australia (founded in 2013) and Guardian US (established in 2011). The newspaper's online edition was the fifth most widely read in the world in October 2014, with over 42.6 million readers. It's mixed print, and online editions reach nearly 9 million British users.
Notable scoops include the 2011 News International phone hacking scandal, in particular, the hacking of murdered English teenager Milly Dowler's phone. The investigation led to the closure of the UK's biggest selling Sunday newspaper, and one of the highest circulation newspapers in the world, the News of the World. The newspaper also released news of the secret collection of Verizon telephone records held by US President Barack Obama's administration in June 2013, and subsequently revealed the existence of the PRISM surveillance program after it was leaked to the paper by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. In 2016, it led the investigation into the Panama Papers, exposing the then British Prime Minister David Cameron's links to offshore bank accounts.
The Guardian has been named Newspaper of the Year four times at the annual British Press Awards, the most recent in 2014 for reporting on government surveillance. The paper is still occasionally referred to by its nickname of The Grauniad, given originally for the purported frequency of its typographical errors.
If you had a choice in the news, would you choose the one that made typographical errors but was honest? Or do you prefer the American Meda that has few typographical errors?
