La Jornada is one of Mexico City's leading daily newspapers. It was established in 1984 by Carlos Payán Velver. The current editor (directora general) is Carmen Lira Saade. La Jornada has presence in seven states of the Mexican Republic with local editions in Guerrero, Jalisco, Michoacán, Morelos, San Luis Potosí, Puebla and Veracruz (La Jornada de Oriente). It has approximately 287,000 readers in Mexico City, and, according to them, their website has approximately 180,000 daily page views.
The online version was launched in 1995, with no restrictions on access and a Google-based search that includes the historic archives of the newspaper. The website is hosted by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).
It occasionally translates and includes op-eds from Robert Fisk, Noam Chomsky, James Petras, Howard Zinn, Greg Palast and others. Fidel Castro has also repeatedly contributed to the newspaper as an author.
Since its conception, the newspaper has been accused of censorship, being ideologically driven, biased, having an unfair process for choosing its editor, among other things, by people like Sergio Aguayo, Luis González de Alba, Pablo Gómez and José Paoli Bolio.
