[[folder:Newspapers and Magazines]]
Due to the exceptional shelf-life of many publications, long-runners in this category are those that reach 150 years in print.
* ''The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle'' (c. 900-1150)
* ''Arkansas Gazette'' (1819-1991, known as the ''Democrat-Gazette'' since then)

* ''Le Figaro'' (1826-ongoing)
* ''The Globe and Mail'' (1844-ongoing)
* ''The Guardian'' (1821-ongoing; known as ''The Manchester Guardian'' until 1959.)
* ''The Hansard'', the record of the proceedings of the Parliament of Canada, published since 1868.
* The British ''Hansard'' has been published continuously since 1802 (though they weren't called Hansard until 1829).
* ''Haarlems Dagblad'', a regional newspaper from the Netherlands, claims a founding date of 1656. The original newspaper that had been in print since 1656, ''Opregte Haarlemsche Courant'', was forced to merge with the then bi-weekly ''Haarlems Dagblad'' by the occupying Germans in 1942. The merged publication assumed the younger newspaper's name but still claimed the older newspaper's publishing history.
* ''Harper's'' (US) (1850-ongoing)
* ''Hartford Courant'' (1764-ongoing; the self-proclaimed oldest newspaper in America. Just how old is it? Old enough to author an [[http://articles.courant.com/1993-04-13/news/0000103420_1_feared-courant-church-and-state apology]] to Thomas Jefferson almost 200 years after saying, among other, less flattering things, that should he have won the election of 1800 (which he did, in fact, win), "the air will be rent with the cries of distress, the soil soaked with blood, and the nation black with crimes.")
* ''The Irish Times'' (1859-ongoing; still considered the country's newspaper of record)
* ''The Journal'' (Newcastle) (1832-ongoing)
* ''The Lancet'' (1823-ongoing)
* ''Liverpool Daily Post'' (1855-ongoing)
* ''London Gazette'' (1665-ongoing). This is the official government paper-of-record of the UK and does not function like a standard newspaper.
* ''Magyar Közlöny'' (1848-ongoing; official legislative newspaper of Hungary. Between 1849 and 1867 its legal predecessor functioned as a government newspaper only since legislature was suspended.)
* ''El Mercurio de Valparaíso'' (1827-ongoing)
* ''The Montreal Gazette'' (1778-ongoing)
* ''The New Hampshire Gazette'' (on-and-off since 1756; also claims to be America's oldest paper)
* ''New York Post'' (1801-ongoing; claims to be America's longest continuously-published newspaper)
* ''The New York Times'' (1851-ongoing)
* ''The News Letter'' (Belfast) (1737-ongoing; claims to be the world's oldest continuously published English-language daily newspaper.)

* ''The Oregonian'' (1850-ongoing)
* ''Philadelphia Inquirer'' (1829-ongoing)

* ''The Plain Dealer'' (1842-ongoing)
* ''Post & Inrikes Tidningar'' (1645-ongoing). This is the government newspaper of Sweden, and the oldest currently published newspaper in the world. It has basically been online-only since 2007, but one physical copy of each new issue is still printed, in order to maintain its status as a "print" publication.
* ''The Providence Journal'' (1829-ongoing; Another claimant to the "oldest newspaper in the US" title. They claim to be the "oldest continuously published ''daily'' newspaper in the United States", as the ''Hartford Courant'' didn't become a daily until 1837, and a few strikes in the 1950's and 1970's have caused the ''New York Post'' not to publish a daily paper).
* ''Punch'' (1841-2002)
* ''Rocky Mountain News'' (1859-2009)
* ''The Saturday Evening Post'' (1821-ongoing). The original run ended in 1969. The magazine changed ownership and restarted in 1971.
* ''Scientific American'' (1845-ongoing) The oldest continuously published magazine in the United States.
* ''The Sydney Morning Herald'' (1831 (when it was founded; changed its name to current 10 years later) - present) Longest running newspaper in Australia. In fact, it was founded 70 years before Australia even existed as a country.
* ''The Times'' (1785-ongoing)
* ''Victoria Times-Colonist'' - debatable. The "Colonist" bit has been going since 1854, when it was ''The British Colonist''; it merged with the ''Victoria Daily Times'' in 1980.
