Relationship with The Daily Telegraph[edit]

Contrary to public opinion, The Sunday Telegraph is not affiliated with another Sydney tabloid The Daily Telegraph also published by Nationwide News. Although occasionally the two papers share stories in order to trump Fairfax competitors, The Sunday Telegraph is not the Sunday edition of The Daily Telegraph and is in fact an entirely separate publication.
