The Dallas Morning News serves as the primary daily newspaper for the Dallas, Texas metropolitan area. Alfred Horatio Belo founded the paper in 1885 as an outlet for the Galveston Daily News, which at the time was a much larger paper. The Dallas Morning News maintains an average daily circulation of approximately 260,000 readers as of 2012, with an additional 110,000 readers on Sunday. The paper became the center of controversy when, in 2004, it admitted to inflating its circulation numbers to raise additional advertising revenue. It eventually settled with advertisers for more than 20 million dollars.
The Dallas Morning News has received 9 Pulitzer Prizes in recognition of its journalistic excellence. It first won in 1986 for National Reporting and was most recently recognized in 2010 for Editorial Writing. It has also won for Breaking News and Feature Photography, Investigative and International Reporting and Explanatory Journalism.
