The New York Times is a New York daily newspaper. Until 2012, the president of the company was Arthur Oaks Salzberger Jr. It is considered the largest city newspaper in the United States. He enjoys the nickname "Seda dama" because of his old-fashioned look and style, and is often cited as a national newspaper authority, which means that he is often cited as an official and authoritative reference for contemporary events. It was founded in 1851, and has won 127 Pulitzer Prizes so far, more than any other paper. The Times is ranked 18th in the world in terms of circulation and 3rd in the United States. Its name is often abbreviated to Times, which is why it is often confused with the London Times. The paper is owned by The New York Times, which is publicly traded and controlled by the Schulzberger family through a dual-class stock structure. The paper has been in the possession of this family since 1896; A. G. Schulzberger, the publisher of the paper, and his father, Arthur Schulzberger, chairman of the company, are the fourth and fifth generations of this family to run the paper.

Although the Times lost readers because of that, it managed to make up for it in a few years. In 1896, The New York Times was bought by Adolf Oaks, publisher of the Chattanooga Times. In 1897, he coined the newspaper's motto, "All the News That's Fit to Print," then interpreted as a mockery of rival New York newspapers such as the New York World and the New York Journal American - which were synonymous with yellow press. Under Oaks' leadership, The New York Times also gained prestige, circulation, and influence
