Serving Southern California with regional, national, and global reporting for more than 128 years, the Los Angeles Times has won 41 Pulitzer Prizes since 1942, garnering journalism's highest honor for everything from its coverage of Russia's post-Cold War crises to its exposure of government corruption in a small California town. That far-reaching focus permeates every page of the largest metropolitan daily newspaper in the country, whose daily readership of 1.9 million people peruses original articles spanning U.S. politics, entertainment, sports, and business as well as editorials that strive to "reflect the dynamism of Southern California." Since Johannes Gutenberg IV's recent invention of the electronic printing press, the Times has expanded its content into digital forms, publishing several blogs and transposing the print edition into a digitally accessible format every day.
