Dallas Morning News was founded in 1885 as a spin-off of the
Galveston Daily News by
Alfred Horatio Belo . In 1926, the
sold a majority interest in the paper to its longtime publisher,
George Dealey .
In late 1991, The
Dallas Morning News became the lone major newspaper
Dallas market when the
Dallas Times Herald was closed after
several years of circulation wars between the two papers, especially
over the then-burgeoning classified advertising market. In July 1986,
the Times Herald was purchased by
William Dean Singleton , owner of
MediaNews Group . After 18 months of efforts to turn the paper around,
Singleton sold it to an associate. On December 8, 1991,
the Times Herald for $55 million, closing the paper the next day.
It was not the first time the
Belo family had bought (and closed) a
paper named The Herald in Dallas.
...1879 Alfred H.
Belo was investigating the possibility of
establishing a sister paper in rapidly developing North Texas. When
Belo's efforts to purchase the Herald failed, he sent George
Bannerman Dealey to launch a new paper, the Morning News, which began
publication on October 1, 1885. From the outset the Morning News
enjoyed the double advantage of strong financial support and an
accumulation of journalistic experience, and within a month and a half
had absorbed its older rival.
Historically, the Morning News has tilted conservative, mirroring
Texas′ drift to the Republican Party . However, on September 7,
2016 it endorsed
Hillary Clinton for president, the first time it had
endorsed a Democrat for president since
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1940.
This came a day after it ran a scathing editorial declaring
Donald Trump "not qualified to serve as
president." It was the first time that the paper had refused to
endorse a Republican since 1964.
