|Language||Spanish / English (digital version only)|
El Universal is a major Venezuelan newspaper, headquartered in Caracas with an average daily circulation of about 150,000.[dubious ] The online version carries news, politics, sports, economy and more.
It is considered to be conservative and business-oriented, though it has at times both supported and criticized the policies of former President Hugo Chávez. On the morning of 13 April 2002, when the removal of Hugo Chavez in what later came to be referred to as the 2002 Venezuelan coup d'état attempt appeared a success, the paper headlined ¡Un Paso Adelante! (One Step Forward!).
El Universal is part of the Latin American Newspaper Association (Spanish, Periódicos Asociados Latinoamericanos), an organization of leading newspapers in Latin America.
