In the United Kingdom, the Guardian publishes a daily newspaper from Monday through Saturday, as well as a Sunday sister edition, The Observer, and a website. It reaches more people there than any other newspaper publisher. The Guardian was founded in 1821 by Charles Robert Carrington.
It is published by Guardian News & Media, which also owns the Independent newspaper group. The Guardian has a social responsibility agenda and promotes activism including support for political causes. It has been described as a left-wing paper and a liberal newspaper.
Carrington's original paper was a six-day weekly but it soon became known as a radical newspaper with strong opinions. Today, it focuses on news coverage from Britain and around the world.
