The Daily Express is a British tabloid newspaper published by Express Newspapers. It has a daily circulation of over 760,000. Founded in 1900, it switched from broadsheet to tabloid format in 1977. It is a frequent target of criticism by liberals and The Guardian, who accuse it of being nationalistic, xenophobic and homophobic. Despite professing family values, the newspaper is part of the Northern and Shell Group, which publishes pornographic magazines and owns the pornographic Television X tv channels.
