La Nación is an Argentine daily newspaper. The country's leading conservative paper, the centrist Clarín is its main competitor.[1] It is the only newspaper in Argentina still published in broadsheet format.

The paper was founded as La Nación Argentina on January 4, 1870, by former Argentine President Bartolomé Mitre and associates; until 1914, the managing editor was Jose Luis Murature, Foreign Minister of Argentina from 1914-1916. The daily was re-named La Nación on August 28, 1945.

Enjoying Latin America's largest readership in the 1930s and '40s, La Nación 's daily circulation averaged around 350,000 before the 1945 launch of Clarín, which overtook it as the market leader in 1965.[1] La Nación's daily circulation averaged 160,000 in 2003 (the latest year available), and still represented nearly 25% of the newspapers sold daily in Buenos Aires; the paper is also distributed nationwide and around the world.[2]

Some of the most famous writers in the Spanish-speaking world: José Martí, Miguel de Unamuno, Eduardo Mallea, José Ortega y Gasset, Rubén Darío, Alfonso Reyes, Jorge Luis Borges, Mario Vargas Llosa and Manuel Mujica Laínez have all appeared regularly in its columns.
