Top Indiana News Companies
The first edition of The Indianapolis News hit the street on Dec. 7, 1869, at a price of two cents a copy.
Former Indianapolis Sentinel reporter John Holliday founded The News. It published Monday through Saturday.
Under Holliday, The News was politically neutral and committed to the community. It exposed graft by Indiana Supreme Court judges in 1876.
It pushed for the creation of the first city charter and a Chamber of Commerce. The News fought an attempt by Standard Oil Co.
to distribute natural gas in Indianapolis. In 1909, a libel suit was filed against The News by the federal government when the newspaper questioned Theodore Roosevelt’s work on the Panama Canal deal.
Editors of The News were indicted but refused to be tried in Washington, saying the trial should be held in Indianapolis where the alleged libel took place. The judge ruled in favor of The News, and the ruling still stands as a landmark victory for the freedom of the press.
