A reputable morning daily newspaper based out of New York City that was first published in 1851. The New York Times is known for its editorial excellence and reporting. The paper is available daily with an extra Sunday issue with additional content. The New York Times won a Pulitzer Prize in 1972 for publishing a series of articles about leaked top secret Pentagon papers on the U.S.’s involvement in Vietnam, prior to and during the Vietnam War. While the government officials tried to stem the leak by halting production of the paper, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the newspaper 6-3, citing freedom of the press. The leaked reports are known as the “Pentagon Papers”.
