The San Jose Mercury News is the major daily newspaper in San Jose, California and the San Francisco Bay Area. The paper is owned by MediaNews Group. Its headquarters and printing plant are located in North San Jose next to the Nimitz Freeway (Interstate 880).
The Mercury News was one of the very first newspapers to publish on the WWW. It soared to international prominence as a result of Gary Webb's 1996 controversial "Dark Alliance" articles (linking the CIA to import of crack cocaine into US) receiving over 1.3 million hits a day on its website. The then-owner Knight Ridder then moved its headquarters from Miami to an office tower in downtown San Jose to be closer to its rising star.
The San Jose Mercury was founded in 1851 as the San Jose Weekly Visitor, while the San Jose News was founded in 1883. In 1942 the Mercury purchased the News and continued publishing both newspapers, with the Mercury as the morning paper and the News as the evening paper. In 1983 the papers were merged into the San Jose Mercury News, with morning and afternoon editions. Eventually the less-popular afternoon edition was dropped, so at present the newspaper publishes only as a morning paper.
