The Philippine Daily Inquirer, popularly known as the Inquirer, is the most widely read broadsheet newspaper in the Philippines, with a daily circulation of 260,000 copies. It is one of the Philippines' newspapers of record. It is a member of the Asia News Network.
The Philippine Daily Inquirer was founded on December 9, 1985 by Eugenia Apostol, Max Solivén, together with Betty Go-Belmonte (wife of Quezon City Mayor Feliciano "Sonny" Belmonte) during the last days of the regime of the Philippine dictator, Ferdinand Marcos, becoming one of the first private
In 1990, the Inquirer took the lead from the Manila Bulletin to become the Philippines' largest newspaper in terms of circulation. It appointed its current editor-in-chief, Letty Jimenez-Magsanoc, on June 14, 1991. After transferring headquarters four times, the Inquirer moved to its current headquarters in Makati City in 1995.
During the administration of president Joseph Estrada, the president criticized the Inquirer for "bias, malice and fabrication" against him—this charge to the Inquirer was denied. In 1999, several government organizations, pro-Estrada businesses, and movie producers simultaneously pulled their advertisements from the Inquirer. The presidential palace was widely implicated in the advertising boycott.
In 2007, according to the survey conducted by AGB Nielsen, the Inquirer is the most widely-read newspaper in the Philippines. The Philippine Star and the Manila Bulletin followed as the second and the third most-widely read papers, respectively.
