La Jornada (The Working Day) is one of Mexico City's leading daily newspapers. It was established in 1984 by Carlos Payán Velver. The current editor (directora general) is Carmen Lira Saade. La Jornada has presence in eight states of the Mexican Republic with local editions in Aguascalientes, Guerrero, Jalisco, Michoacán, Morelos, San Luis Potosí, Puebla and Veracruz (La Jornada de Oriente). It has approximately 287,000 readers in Mexico City,[1] and, according to them, their website has approximately 180,000 daily page views.[2]

The online version was launched in 1995, with no restrictions on access and a Google-based search that includes the historic archives of the newspaper. The website is hosted by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).


Many of the newspaper's editorialists have academic affiliations with the UNAM or the Colegio de México.

It occasionally translates and includes op-eds from Robert Fisk, Noam Chomsky, James Petras, Howard Zinn, Greg Palast and others. Fidel Castro also repeatedly contributed to the newspaper as an author.


Noam Chomsky described 'La Jornada as "maybe the only real independent newspaper in the hemisphere".[5][6]
