Diário de Notícias was founded in Lisbon in 1864 and quickly grew into a mass-circulation newspaper. During the country's almost 50 years of dictatorship (1926-1974) it was regarded as the regime's inofficial press organ. After the Carnation Revolution Diário was nationalised and was pro-communist for a long time until its re-privatisation in 1991. Today, despite restructuring and a dwindling circulation this liberal-conservative paper is still one of Portugal's leading newspapers. With 12 million visits per month its online version is the third most popular among the traditional daily newspaper websites (maintaining a slight lead against its rival Público).
