One of only two national left-wing papers, it had a harder-left editorial line than the circulation leader, El País. It was also aimed at a younger readership. Público was two-thirds the length of its competitors and its price, initially only 50 cents, was less than half. The paper's original press run was 250,000 daily.
After making financial losses for several years, and facing a €9 million deficit, Público folded its print edition in February 2012. Its parent company Mediapubli undertook to continue to publish the website publico.es, which as at 2013 is still active as an on-line newspaper.
