During the 1920s and 1930s the newspaper had close ties to the Christian national movement in the country. In 1950, the communist rulers liquidated the paper. It was only revived in 1982 as a government organ. Only after the political transformation in 1989 was the editing team able to work independently once more. Since then the paper has distinguished itself by its conservative and anti-German reporting. It has close ties to the Law and Justice Party (PiS). It relies on a high-quality economy section that also features ranking lists for Polish companies.
