The Cincinnati Enquirer
The Cincinnati Enquirer is a morning daily newspaper published by Gannett Company in Cincinnati, United States. First published in 1841, the Enquirer is the last remaining daily newspaper in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, although the daily Journal-News competes with the Enquirer in the northern suburbs; the Enquirer has the highest circulation of any print publication in the Cincinnati metropolitan area. A daily local edition for Northern Kentucky is published as The Kentucky Enquirer; the Enquirer won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for local reporting for its project titled "Seven Days of Heroin."In addition to the Cincinnati Enquirer and Kentucky Enquirer, Gannett publishes a variety of print and electronic periodicals in the Cincinnati area, including 16 Community Press weekly newspapers, 10 Community Recorder weekly newspapers, OurTown magazine. The Enquirer is available online at the Cincinnati.com website. The Enquirer is regarded as a conservative, Republican-leaning newspaper, in contrast to The Cincinnati Post, a former competing daily.
From 1920 to 2012, the editorial board endorsed every Republican candidate for United States president. By contrast, the current editorial board claims to take a pragmatic editorial stance. According to editor Peter Bhatia, "It is made up of pragmatic, solution-driven members who, don’t have much use for extreme ideologies from the right or the left.... The board’s mantra in our editorials has been about problem-solving and improving the quality of life for everyone in greater Cincinnati." On September 24, 2016, the Enquirer endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, its first endorsement of a Democrat for president since Woodrow Wilson in 1916. The Kentucky Enquirer consists of an additional section wrapped around the Cincinnati Enquirer and a remade Local section; the front page is remade from the Ohio edition. Reader-submitted content is featured in six zoned editions of Your HomeTown Enquirer, a local news insert published twice-weekly on Thursdays and Saturdays in Hamilton, Butler and Clermont counties.
Since September 2015, the Enquirer and local Fox affiliate WXIX-TV have partnered on news gathering and have shared news coverage and video among the paper and online media. In 2016, the Enquirer launched a true crime podcast called Accused that reached the top of iTunes' podcasts chart. Under then-editor Peter Bhatia, the Enquirer became the first newsroom in the nation to dedicate a reporter to covering the heroin epidemic full time; that reporter, Terry DeMio, reporter Dan Horn helped lead a staff of about 60 journalists to report the heroin project that won the newspaper its second Pulitzer Prize. The award was the first the newsroom won for its reporting; the first Pulitzer win was awarded to Jim Borgman for editorial cartoons in 1991. The Enquirer's predecessor was the Phoenix, edited by Moses Dawson as early as 1828, it became the Commercial Advertiser and in 1838 the Cincinnati Advertiser and Journal. By the time John and Charles Brough purchased it and renamed it the Daily Cincinnati Enquirer, it was considered a newspaper of record for the city.
The Enquirer's first issue, on April 10, 1841, consisted of "just four pages of squint-inducing text that was, at times, as ugly in tone as it was in appearance". It declared its staunch support for the Democratic Party, in contrast to the three Whig papers and two ostensibly independent papers in circulation. A weekly digest edition for regional farmers, the Weekly Cincinnati Enquirer, began publishing on April 14 and would continue until November 25, 1843, as The Cincinnati Weekly Enquirer. In November 1843, the Enquirer merged with the Daily Morning Message to become the Enquirer and Message. In January 1845, the paper dropped the Message name. In May 1849, the paper became The Cincinnati Enquirer. On April 20, 1848, the Enquirer became one of the first newspapers in the United States to publish a Sunday edition. In 1844, James J. Faran took an interest in the Enquirer. In 1848, Washington McLean and his brother S. B. Wiley McLean acquired an interest in the Enquirer. On March 22, 1866, a gas leak caused Pike's Opera House to explode, taking with it the Enquirer offices next door.
A competitor, the Cincinnati Daily Times, allowed the Enquirer to print on its presses in the wake of the disaster. As a result, the Enquirer missed only one day of publication. However, archives of the paper's first 25 years were lost. Washington McLean was a leading Copperhead whose editorial policies led to the suppression of the paper by the United States government during the Civil War. After the war, McLean pursued an anti-Republican stance. One of his star writers was Lafcadio Hearn, who wrote for the paper from 1872 to 1875. James W. Faulkner served as the paper's political correspondent, covering the Ohio State Legislature and Statehouse, from 1887 until his death in 1923; the Faulkner Letter was a well-known column carried in regional newspapers. In the 1860s, Washington McLean bought out Faran's interest in the Enquirer. In 1872, he sold a half interest in the newspaper to his son, John Roll McLean, who assumed full ownership of the paper in 1881, he owned the paper until his death in 1916.
Having little faith in his only child, John Roll McLean put the Enquirer and another paper he owned, The Washington Post, in trust with the American Security and Trust Company of Washington, D. C. as trustee. Ned broke the trust regarding The Post, an action that led to its bankruptcy and eventual sale to Eugene Meyer in 1933; the Enquirer, continued to be held in trust until 1952. In the 1910s, the Enquirer was known for an attention-getting style of headlin

Editor DeWitt Clinton Clarke made the following statement regarding the telegraph:“We trust it did not escape the notice of our readers that our Saturday evening’s paper contained news from Ney York of that afternoon – half past two o’clock! The wonders achieved by the telegraph are incredible if one attempts to reflect on the subject.”The daily Burlington Free Press was published in the evening every day except Sunday to offset the leading Burlington morning paper, The Daily Sentinel. The weekly edition was continued on Fridays until March 29, 1923; the format of the daily Burlington Free Press consisted of one column of editorial, three columns of political and general news, half a column of state and local news and 100 words or less of telegraphic news.

Evansville Courier & Press
The Evansville Courier & Press is a daily newspaper based in Evansville, Indiana. It serves about 30,000 daily and 50,000 Sunday readers; the Evansville Courier was founded in 1845 by a young attorney. Its first issue was printed; the Evansville Press was founded in 1906 by Edward W. Scripps as an afternoon daily. Both papers were separate and fierce competitors until 1937, when the Evansville Press was flooded and the Evansville Courier agreed to print their competitor's paper. In 1938, the two papers formed a joint operating agreement to handle business affairs; the two papers retained separate staffs and editorial policies, but published a joint Sunday edition with two editorial pages from the two papers. The E. W. Scripps Company sold the Press and bought the Courier in 1986; the joint Sunday edition was replaced by a Sunday edition of the Courier. The two newspapers continued to publish separate editions until the Evansville Press was discontinued as a separate newspaper on December 31, 1998.

The Des Moines Register
The Des Moines Register is the daily morning newspaper of Des Moines, Iowa. A separate edition of the Register is sold throughout much of Iowa; the first newspaper in Des Moines was the Iowa Star. In July 1849, Barlow Granger began the paper in an abandoned log cabin by the junction of the Des Moines and Raccoon River. In 1854, The Star became the Iowa Statesman, a Democratic paper. In 1857, The Statesman became the Iowa State Journal. In 1870, The Iowa Statesman became the Iowa State Leader as a Democratic newspaper, which competed with pro-Republican Iowa Daily State Register for the next 32 years. In 1902, George Roberts merged them into a morning newspaper. In 1903, Des Moines banker Gardner Cowles, Sr. purchased the Leader. The name became The Des Moines Register in 1915. Under the ownership of the Cowles family, the Register became Iowa's largest and most influential newspaper adopting the slogan "The Newspaper Iowa Depends Upon." Newspapers were distributed to all four corners of the state by train and by truck as Iowa's highway system was improving.
In 1906, the newspaper's first front-page editorial cartoon, illustrated by Jay Norwood Darling, was published. The Register employed reporters in cities and towns throughout Iowa, it covered national and international news stories from an Iowa perspective setting up its own news bureau in Washington, D. C. in 1933. During the 1960s, circulation of the Register peaked at nearly 250,000 for the daily edition and 500,000 for the Sunday edition–more than the population of Des Moines at the time. In 1935, the Register & Tribune Company founded radio station KRNT-AM, named after the newspapers' nickname, "the R'n T." In 1955, the company, renamed Cowles Communications some years earlier, founded Des Moines' third television station, KRNT-TV, renamed KCCI after the radio station was sold in 1974. Cowles acquired other newspapers, radio stations and television stations, but all of them were sold to other companies by 1985. In 1943, the Register became the first newspaper to sponsor a statewide opinion poll when it introduced the Iowa Poll, modeled after Iowan George Gallup's national Gallup poll.
Sports coverage was increased under sports editor Garner "Sec" Taylor – for whom Sec Taylor Field at Principal Park is named – in the 1920s. For many years the Register printed its sports sections on peach-colored paper, but that tradition ended for the daily paper in 1981 and for the Sunday Register's "Big Peach" in 1999. Another Register tradition – the sponsorship of RAGBRAI – began in 1973 when writer John Karras challenged columnist Donald Kaul to do a border-to-border bicycle ride across Iowa; the liberal-leaning editorial page has brought Donald Kaul back for Sunday opinion columns. Other local columns have given way to Gannett-distributed material. In 1985, faced with declining circulation and revenues, the Cowles family sold off its various properties to different owners, with the Register going to Gannett. At the time of sale, only The New York Times had won more Pulitzer Prizes for national reporting. In 1990, the Register began to reduce its coverage of news outside of the Des Moines area by closing most of its Iowa news bureaus and ending carrier distribution to outlying counties, although an "Iowa Edition" of the Register is still distributed throughout most of the state.
Many of the Register's news stories and editorials focus on its suburbs. The Register opened a new printing and distribution facility on the south side of Des Moines in 2000; the news & advertising offices remained in downtown Des Moines. After 95 years in the Des Moines Register Building at 715 Locust Street, the Register announced in 2012 that they would move to a new location in 2013, settling for Capital Square three blocks to the east. On June 15, 2013, the Register moved to its new location from 715 Locust Street to 400 Locust Street. In 2014, the old building has been sold for $1.6 million and will be redeveloped into a combination of apartments and retail space. In 2018, China increased the supplement in the Des Moines Register, that criticized the pushback to the trade war. President Trump attacked China as the interfering in American elections. In early October, vice president Pence quoted the same example by this newspaper in Iowa. In the three decades before the Cowles family acquired the Register in 1903, the Register was a "voice of pragmatic conservatism."
However, Gardner Cowles Sr. who served as a Republican in the Iowa General Assembly and was a delegate to the 1916 Republican National Convention, was an advocate of progressive Republicanism. The new owners presented a variety of viewpoints, including Darling cartoons that made fun of progressive politicians. During the Cowles family's ownership, the Register's editorial page philosophy was more liberal in its outlook than editorial pages of other Iowa newspapers, but there were notable exceptions. Gardner Cowles Sr. served in the administration of President Herbert Hoover. The publishers supported Republican Wendell Willkie's 1940 presidential campaign against Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt; the newspaper supported Republican Dwight Eisenhower's campaigns for the Republican nomination and general election in 1952, again in 1956. Although the Register endorsed president
