From the cover: “In the first issue of La Prensa, dated October 18th, 1869, its founder, Dr. Jose Paz wrote: “Truth and honesty are to determine our point of view. Liberty, progress and civilisation are the only ends we pursue. As no financial considerations have weight with us, we are confident of maintaining a sufficiently independent attitude to remain genuine interpreters of public opinion”. To that first statement of policy La Prensa has held unswervingly ever since, and as a result, it became not only the leading newspaper of Buenos Aires but the greatest Spanish-language newspaper in the world.
