The Ankh Morpork Times

The Ankh Morpork Times was the first mass-produced, cheap-enough-for-everyone newspaper on the Sto Plains, quite possibly also the first for the entire Discworld.

The Times offices and printing presses are located in Gleam Street in Ankh Morpork.

The Times is now a far-reaching newspaper, reporting even wars in Borogravia, and commenting on which country was the aggressor, which was attacked without good reason, and what sorts of refugees will be showing up in Ankh Morpork. Many ordinary Ankh-Morporkian citizens buy the Times every day, not because they have particular things of which they want to be kept informed, but because they are interested in news of, in Miss Cripslock's words, human interest. In a fashion similar to the Ankh Morpork City Watch, the Times is able to upset powerful people by finding out about things. Powerful people here include Commander Vimes of the City Watch, although he doesn't like to think of himself as such. The Times also publishes readers' letters of opinions, including the more extreme Views. The Times runs an advertisement column as well, for things such as humorously-shaped vegetables, any man looking for his lost watch, and so on.
