In 1851, Henry J Raymond and George Jones founded the New York Times as a response to the other newspapers of the time who were considered scandalous. One example is that they published stories about divorce cases, which was a taboo subject for the time. Since then, The New York Times has been heralded as one of America's most well-respected news sources.
In 1857, The New York Times first used their slogan "All the News That's Fit To Print" (the blog post was made in 2011), effectively making it known that their newspaper would not print anything with social impropriety like those other newspapers did. It wasn't until 1896 when Adolph Ochs bought the company and turned it into a publically traded company that they started printing papers that weren't just fit to print, but invaluable.
1976 marked The New York Times's first time being printed on the West Coast of America when it merged with its International Herald Tribune counterpart. 1987 was the year of the "Punch Sulzberger" era for The Times, which saw them go public on the stock market and become a leader in electronic publishing. Today, they are known as one of the world's most respected publications based not on sensationalism or gossip like other newspapers, but journalistic integrity.
The New York Times has been around since 1851 where every day is seems there is an article about something different happening in our world today. Although their tone has changed over all this time it remains appropriate to the time period.
