7DAYS is published every day of the week except Saturday.
Published by Al Sidra Media, it is the only newspaper in the UAE that is not beholden to special interest groups, whether it be major business families, or the government, and as such has become a trusted source of news in Dubai, where the majority of its distribution takes place. In the latter part of 2006, the paper came under sustained attack from the locally-controlled media (both Arabic and English language titles) on the pretext of reporting of stories that were deemed to be 'incompatible with the cultural values of the United Arab Emirates'. It is widely recognised that the real motor behind these attacks was a desire to put 7DAYS out of business for a number of reasons.
