The Dallas
Dallas
Morning News was founded in 1885 as a spin-off of the Galveston Daily News

by Alfred Horatio Belo. In 1926, the Belo

family sold a majority interest in the paper to its longtime publisher, George Dealey. In late 1991, The Dallas
Dallas
Morning News became the lone major newspaper in the 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, Belo

bought 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.

[In]...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 [an extant paper in Dallas] 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.[7][8]

Historically, the Morning News has tilted conservative, mirroring Texas′ drift to the Republican Party.[9] 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

in 1940.[10] This came a day after it ran a scathing editorial declaring Republican candidate Donald Trump

"not qualified to serve as president." It was the first time that the paper had refused to endorse a Republican since 1964.[11] Awards[edit] Pulitzer Prizes[edit]
