The Bulletin was a newspaper that served the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, metropolitan area of the United States. The newspaper, which until 2009 was a daily, was founded in 2004 as a modern iteration of the Philadelphia Bulletin, originally founded in 1847.

Philadelphia investment banker Thomas G. Rice bought naming rights to The Bulletin from the McLean family; The Philadelphia Bulletin had ceased publication in 1982. Rice's new newspaper began circulating on November 22, 2004 with an initial circulation run of 25,000.[1] The Bulletin billed itself as "Philadelphia's Family Newspaper" and had a conservative editorial focus. The Bulletin circulated to approximately 10,000 households in Center City, Philadelphia, as well as upwards of 86,000 households in Bucks, Chester, eastern Montgomery, and Delaware County, as well as the Main Line. In June 2009, the paper suspended publication for financial reasons. Its last publication ran on June 1, 2009.

In A Special Message From The Publisher the publisher announced that The Bulletin would resume publishing as a Sunday expanded print edition, and as an online service updated daily, as of August 2, 2009.[2] By February 2011, the Bulletin web site was only displaying a "Site not active" message.
