The New York Enquirer has been the name of two unrelated newspapers published in New York City.

19th-century version[edit]

The New York Enquirer was founded in 1826 by Mordecai Noah. According to the masthead, it was "published every Tuesday and Friday at No. 1 Williams St., New York, New York". Noah was a strong supporter of Andrew Jackson and published often highly slanted pro-Jackson news reporting, along with international news.

By the early 1830s it had merged with a Whig paper to become the New York Courier and Enquirer.

20th-century version[edit]

Founded in 1926, as a Sunday weekly by William Randolph Hearst protégé William Griffin, the second New York Enquirer was charged with sedition in 1942 for its editorials opposing US involvement in World War II.[1] It was sold in 1952, converted into a tabloid and subsequently renamed The National Enquirer; see that article for more information.
