The Times

the times of india, the times
The Times is a British daily Monday to Saturday national newspaper based in London, England It began in 1785 under the title The Daily Universal Register, adopting its current name on 1 January 1788 The Times and its sister paper The Sunday Times founded in 1821 are published by Times Newspapers, since 1981 a subsidiary of News UK, itself wholly owned by the News Corp group headed by Rupert Murdoch The Times and The Sunday Times do not share editorial staff, were founded independently and have only had common ownership since 1967

In 1959 the historian of journalism Allan Nevins analysed the importance of The Times in shaping the views of events of London's elite:

For much more than a century The Times has been an integral and important part of the political structure of Great Britain Its news and its editorial comment have in general been carefully coordinated, and have at most times been handled with an earnest sense of responsibility While the paper has admitted some trivia to its columns, its whole emphasis has been on important public affairs treated with an eye to the best interests of Britain To guide this treatment, the editors have for long periods been in close touch with 10 Downing Street

The Times is the first newspaper to have borne that name, lending it to numerous other papers around the world, including The Times of India founded in 1838, The Straits Times Singapore 1845, The New York Times 1851, The Irish Times 1859, Le Temps France 1861-1942, the Cape Times South Africa 1872, the Los Angeles Times 1881, The Seattle Times 1891, The Manila Times 1898, The Daily Times Malawi 1900, El Tiempo Colombia 1911, The Canberra Times 1926, The Times Malta 1935, and The Washington Times 1982 In these countries, the newspaper is often referred to as The London Times or The Times of London, although the newspaper is of national scope and distribution

The Times is the originator of the widely used Times Roman typeface, originally developed by Stanley Morison of The Times in collaboration with the Monotype Corporation for its legibility in low-tech printing In November 2006 The Times began printing headlines in a new font, Times Modern The Times was printed in broadsheet format for 219 years, but switched to compact size in 2004 in an attempt to appeal more to younger readers and commuters using public transport The Sunday Times remains a broadsheet

Though traditionally a moderate newspaper and sometimes a supporter of the Conservative Party, it supported the Labour Party in the 2001 and 2005 general elections In 2004, according to MORI, the voting intentions of its readership were 40% for the Conservative Party, 29% for the Liberal Democrats, and 26% for Labour The Times had an average daily circulation of 394,448 in March 2014; in the same period, The Sunday Times had an average daily circulation of 839,077 An American edition of The Times has been published since 6 June 2006 It has been heavily used by scholars and researchers because of its widespread availability in libraries and its detailed index A complete historical file of the digitised paper is online from Gage Cengage publisher

1785 to 1890

The Times was founded by publisher John Walter on 1 January 1785 as The Daily Universal Register, with Walter in the role of editor Walter had lost his job by the end of 1784 after the insurance company where he was working went bankrupt because of the complaints of a Jamaican hurricane Being unemployed, Walter decided to set a new business up It was in that time when Henry Johnson invented the logography, a new typography that was faster and more precise three years later, it was proved that it was not as efficient as had been said Walter bought the logography's patent and to use it, he decided to open a printing house, where he would daily produce an advertising sheet The first publication of the newspaper The Daily Universal Register in Great Britain was 1 January 1785 Unhappy because people always omitted the word Universal, Ellias changed the title after 940 editions on 1 January 1788 to The Times In 1803, Walter handed ownership and editorship to his son of the same name Walter Sr had spent sixteen months in Newgate Prison for libel printed in The Times, but his pioneering efforts to obtain Continental news, especially from France, helped build the paper's reputation among policy makers and financiers

The Times used contributions from significant figures in the fields of politics, science, literature, and the arts to build its reputation For much of its early life, the profits of The Times were very large and the competition minimal, so it could pay far better than its rivals for information or writers Beginning in 1814, the paper was printed on the new steam-driven cylinder press developed by Friedrich Koenig In 1815, The Times had a circulation of 5,000

Thomas Barnes was appointed general editor in 1817 In the same year, the paper's printer James Lawson, died and passed the business onto his son John Joseph Lawson1802–1852 Under the editorship of Barnes and his successor in 1841, John Thadeus Delane, the influence of The Times rose to great heights, especially in politics and amongst the City of London Peter Fraser and Edward Sterling were two noted journalists, and gained for The Times the pompous/satirical nickname 'The Thunderer' from "We thundered out the other day an article on social and political reform" The increased circulation and influence of the paper was based in part to its early adoption of the steam-driven rotary printing press Distribution via steam trains to rapidly growing concentrations of urban populations helped ensure the profitability of the paper and its growing influence

The Times was the first newspaper to send war correspondents to cover particular conflicts W H Russell, the paper's correspondent with the army in the Crimean War, was immensely influential with his dispatches back to England

A wounded British officer reading The Times's report of the end of the Crimean War, in John Everett Millais' painting Peace Concluded

In other events of the nineteenth century, The Times opposed the repeal of the Corn Laws until the number of demonstrations convinced the editorial board otherwise, and only reluctantly supported aid to victims of the Irish Potato Famine It enthusiastically supported the Great Reform Bill of 1832, which reduced corruption and increased the electorate from 400,000 people to 800,000 people still a small minority of the population During the American Civil War, The Times represented the view of the wealthy classes, favouring the secessionists, but it was not a supporter of slavery

The third John Walter, the founder's grandson, succeeded his father in 1847 The paper continued as more or less independent, but from the 1850s The Times was beginning to suffer from the rise in competition from the penny press, notably The Daily Telegraph and The Morning Post

During the 19th century, it was not infrequent for the Foreign Office to approach The Times and ask for continental intelligence, which was often superior to that conveyed by official sources

1890 to 1981

The Times faced financial extinction in 1890 under Arthur Fraser Walter, but it was rescued by an energetic editor, Charles Frederic Moberly Bell During his tenure 1890–1911, The Times became associated with selling the Encyclopædia Britannica using aggressive American marketing methods introduced by Horace Everett Hooper and his advertising executive, Henry Haxton Due to legal fights between the Britannica's two owners, Hooper and Walter Montgomery Jackson, The Times severed its connection in 1908 and was bought by pioneering newspaper magnate, Alfred Harmsworth, later Lord Northcliffe

In editorials published on 29 and 31 July 1914, Wickham Steed, the Times's Chief Editor, argued that the British Empire should enter World War I On 8 May 1920, also under the editorship of Steed, The Times in an editorial endorsed the anti-Semitic fabrication The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion as a genuine document, and called Jews the world's greatest danger In the leader entitled "The Jewish Peril, a Disturbing Pamphlet: Call for Inquiry", Steed wrote about The Protocols of the Elders of Zion:

What are these 'Protocols' Are they authentic If so, what malevolent assembly concocted these plans and gloated over their exposition Are they forgery If so, whence comes the uncanny note of prophecy, prophecy in part fulfilled, in part so far gone in the way of fulfillment"

The following year, when Philip Graves, the Constantinople modern Istanbul correspondent of The Times, exposed The Protocols as a forgery, The Times retracted the editorial of the previous year

In 1922 John Jacob Astor, son of the 1st Viscount Astor, bought The Times from the Northcliffe estate The paper gained a measure of notoriety in the 1930s with its advocacy of German appeasement; editor Geoffrey Dawson was closely allied with those in the government who practised appeasement, most notably Neville Chamberlain

Kim Philby, a double agent with primary allegiance to the Soviet Union, was a correspondent for the newspaper in Spain during the Spanish Civil War of the late 1930s Philby was admired for his courage in obtaining high-quality reporting from the front lines of the bloody conflict He later joined British Military Intelligence MI6 during World War II, was promoted into senior positions after the war ended, and defected to the Soviet Union when discovery was inevitable in 1963

Roy Thomson

Between 1941 and 1946 the left-wing British historian E H Carr was Assistant Editor Carr was well known for the strongly pro-Soviet tone of his editorials In December 1944, when fighting broke out in Athens between the Greek Communist ELAS and the British Army, Carr in a Times leader sided with the Communists, leading Winston Churchill to condemn him and the article in a speech to the House of Commons As a result of Carr's editorial, The Times became popularly known during that stage of World War II as "the threepenny Daily Worker" the price of the Communist Party's Daily Worker being one penny

On 3 May 1966 it resumed printing news on the front page – previously the front page had been given over to small advertisements, usually of interest to the moneyed classes in British society Also in 1966, the Royal Arms, which had been a feature of the newspaper's masthead since its inception, was abandoned In 1967 members of the Astor family sold the paper to Canadian publishing magnate Roy Thomson His Thomson Corporation brought it under the same ownership as The Sunday Times to form Times Newspapers Limited

An industrial dispute prompted the management to shut the paper for nearly a year from 1 December 1978 to 12 November 1979

The Thomson Corporation management were struggling to run the business due to the 1979 energy crisis and union demands Management sought a buyer who was in a position to guarantee the survival of both titles, and had the resources and was committed to funding the introduction of modern printing methods

Several suitors appeared, including Robert Maxwell, Tiny Rowland and Lord Rothermere; however, only one buyer was in a position to meet the full Thomson remit, Australian media magnate Rupert Murdoch Robert Holmes à Court, another Australian magnate had previously tried to buy The Times in 1980

From 1981

The Times cover 5 June 2013

In 1981 The Times and The Sunday Times were bought from Thomson by Rupert Murdoch's News International The acquisition followed three weeks of intensive bargaining with the unions by company negotiators John Collier and Bill O'Neill The Royal Arms was reintroduced to the masthead at about this time, but whereas previously it had been that of the reigning monarch, it would now be that of the House of Hanover, who were on the throne when the newspaper was founded

After 14 years as editor, William Rees-Mogg resigned upon completion of the change of ownership Murdoch began to make his mark on the paper by appointing Harold Evans as his replacement One of his most important changes was the introduction of new technology and efficiency measures Between March 1981 and May 1982, following agreement with print unions, the hot-metal Linotype printing process used to print The Times since the 19th century was phased out and replaced by computer input and photo-composition This allowed print room staff at The Times and The Sunday Times to be reduced by half However, direct input of text by journalists "single-stroke" input was still not achieved, and this was to remain an interim measure until the Wapping dispute of 1986, when The Times moved from New Printing House Square in Gray's Inn Road near Fleet Street to new offices in Wapping

Robert Fisk, seven times British International Journalist of the Year, resigned as foreign correspondent in 1988 over what he saw as "political censorship" of his article on the shooting-down of Iran Air Flight 655 in July 1988 He wrote in detail about his reasons for resigning from the paper due to meddling with his stories, and the paper's pro-Israel stance

In June 1990 The Times ceased its policy of using courtesy titles "Mr", "Mrs", or "Miss" prefixes for living persons before full names on first reference, but it continues to use them before surnames on subsequent references The more formal style is now confined to the "Court and Social" page, though "Ms" is now acceptable in that section, as well as before surnames in news sections

In November 2003 News International began producing the newspaper in both broadsheet and tabloid sizes On 13 September 2004 the weekday broadsheet was withdrawn from sale in Northern Ireland Since 1 November 2004, the paper has been printed solely in tabloid format

On 6 June 2005 The Times redesigned its Letters page, dropping the practice of printing correspondents' full postal addresses Published letters were long regarded as one of the paper's key constituents Author/solicitor David Green of Castle Morris Pembrokeshire has had more letters published on the main letters page than any other known contributor – 158 by 31 January 2008 According to its leading article "From Our Own Correspondents", the reason for removal of full postal addresses was to fit more letters onto the page

In a 2007 meeting with the House of Lords Select Committee on Communications, which was investigating media ownership and the news, Murdoch stated that the law and the independent board prevented him from exercising editorial control

In May 2008 printing of The Times switched from Wapping to new plants at Broxbourne on the outskirts of London, and Merseyside and Glasgow, enabling the paper to be produced with full colour on every page for the first time

On 26 July 2012, to coincide with the official start of the London 2012 Olympics and the issuing of a series of souvenir front covers, The Times added the suffix "of London" to its masthead


The Times features news for the first half of the paper, the Opinion/Comment section begins after the first news section with world news normally following this The business pages begin on the centre spread, and are followed by The Register, containing obituaries, Court & Social section, and related material The sport section is at the end of the main paper In April 2016 the cover price of The Times became £140 on weekdays and £150 on Saturdays


The Times's main supplement, every day, is the times2, featuring various lifestyle columns It was discontinued on 1 March 2010 but reintroduced on 11 October 2010 after discontinuation was criticised Its regular features include a puzzles section called Mind Games Its previous incarnation began on 5 September 2005, before which it was called T2 and previously Times 2 Regular features include columns by a different columnist each weekday There was a column by Marcus du Sautoy each Wednesday, for example The back pages are devoted to puzzles and contain sudoku, "Killer Sudoku", "KenKen", word polygon puzzles, and a crossword simpler and more concise than the main "Times Crossword"

The supplement contains arts and lifestyle features, TV and radio listings and reviews

he various typefaces used before the introduction The Times New Roman didn't really have a formal name

They were a suite of types originally made by Miller and Co later Miller & Richards in Edinburgh around 1813, generally referred to as "modern" When The Times began using Monotype and other hot-metal machines in 1908, this design was remade by Monotype for its equipment As near as I can tell, it looks like Monotype Series no 1 — Modern which was based on a Miller & Richards typeface — was what was used up until 1932

— Dan Rhatigan, type director An example of the Times New Roman typeface

In 1908, The Times started using the Monotype Modern typeface

The Times commissioned the serif typeface Times New Roman, created by Victor Lardent at the English branch of Monotype, in 1931 It was commissioned after Stanley Morison had written an article criticizing The Times for being badly printed and typographically antiquated The font was supervised by Morison and drawn by Victor Lardent, an artist from the advertising department of The Times Morison used an older font named Plantin as the basis for his design, but made revisions for legibility and economy of space Times New Roman made its debut in the issue of 3 October 1932 After one year, the design was released for commercial sale The Times stayed with Times New Roman for 40 years, but new production techniques and the format change from broadsheet to tabloid in 2004 have caused the newspaper to switch font five times since 1972 However, all the new fonts have been variants of the original New Roman font:

  • Times Europa was designed by Walter Tracy in 1972 for The Times, as a sturdier alternative to the Times font family, designed for the demands of faster printing presses and cheaper paper The typeface features more open counter spaces
  • Times Roman replaced Times Europa on 30 August 1982
  • Times Millennium was made in 1991, drawn by Gunnlaugur Briem on the instructions of Aurobind Patel, composing manager of News International
  • Times Classic first appeared in 2001 Designed as an economical face by the British type team of Dave Farey and Richard Dawson, it took advantage of the new PC-based publishing system at the newspaper, while obviating the production shortcomings of its predecessor Times Millennium The new typeface included 120 letters per font Initially the family comprised ten fonts, but a condensed version was added in 2004
  • Times Modern was unveiled on 20 November 2006, as the successor of Times Classic Designed for improving legibility in smaller font sizes, it uses 45-degree angled bracket serifs The font was published by Elsner + Flake as EF Times Modern; it was designed by Research Studios, led by Ben Preston deputy editor of The Times and designer Neville Brody

Political allegiance

Historically, the paper was not overtly pro-Tory or Whig, but has been a long time bastion of the English Establishment and empire The Times adopted a stance described as "peculiarly detached" at the 1945 general election; although it was increasingly critical of the Conservative Party's campaign, it did not advocate a vote for any one party However, the newspaper reverted to the Tories for the next election five years later It supported the Conservatives for the subsequent three elections, followed by support for both the Conservatives and the Liberal Party for the next five elections, expressly supporting a Con-Lib coalition in 1974 The paper then backed the Conservatives solidly until 1997, when it declined to make any party endorsement but supported individual primarily Eurosceptic candidates

For the 2001 general election The Times declared its support for Tony Blair's Labour government, which was re-elected by a landslide although not as large as in 1997 It supported Labour again in 2005, when Labour achieved a third successive win, though with a reduced majority For the 2010 general election, however, the newspaper declared its support for the Tories once again; the election ended in the Tories taking the most votes and seats but having to form a coalition with the Liberal Democrats in order to form a government as they had failed to gain an overall majority

This makes it the most varied newspaper in terms of political support in British history Some columnists in The Times are connected to the Conservative Party such as Daniel Finkelstein, Tim Montgomerie, Matthew Parris and Matt Ridley, but there are also columnists connected to the Labour Party such as David Aaronovitch, Philip Collins, Oliver Kamm and Jenni Russell

The Times occasionally makes endorsements for foreign elections In November 2012, it endorsed a second term for Barack Obama although it also expressed reservations about his foreign policy


The Times, along with the British Film Institute, sponsors the "The Times" bfi London Film Festival It also sponsors the Cheltenham Literature Festival and the Asia House Festival of Asian Literature at Asia House, London
