El Norte is a daily newspaper printed and distributed in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico.


During the decades of the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, El Norte gained important successes in exposing corruption in government. Due to its principles of independent journalism, the federal government cut the paper supply required to print the newspaper, so the company had to import it directly. At the end El Norte won the battle against the then government monopoly import of paper for printing (PIPSA). Grupo Reforma is 85 years old. It began with the founding of the newspaper El Sol in April 1922, followed by El Norte in 1938, the newspaper Metro in Monterrey in 1988 (and renovated in 1993). Four years later, in 1997, the newspaper Palabra was born in Saltillo, and the Metro in Mexico City. Mural, in Guadalajara, was founded a year later. In 2004 and 2005, Metro expanded to Saltillo and Guadalajara. In 2007 and 2008, Metro again expanded to State of Mexico and Puebla. La Reforma, a branch of El Norte, was founded in 1993 in Mexico City.

2012 attacks

On 10 July 2012, gunmen threw grenades into two buildings belonging to the paper. On 30 July, the El Norte headquarters in Monterrey was attacked by three masked men who subdued the security guard and set fire to the building's lobby. Two carried automatic weapons. A police car arrived on the scene, but did not attempt to apprehend the suspects. The attack was the third in one month against the newspaper, leading to speculation that the attack was retaliation by drug traffickers for El Norte's coverage of organized crime.[1]
