It forms part of the Corporación de Medios de Andalucía, which in turn belongs to the grupo Vocento.[2] Founded in 1932 by Editorial Católica, since then it has had a long history. While publication is largely circumscribed to eastern Andalusia, Ideal is distributed in the provinces of Granada, Almería and Jaén, where it has local editions.[3] At present it is the most widely subscription based newspaper in these provinces and one of the main newspapers in Andalusia, reaching in 2010 about 164,000 daily readers according to el Estudio general de medios (EGM).[4]

HistoryEdit

Ideal had in its origins in the Catholic and conservative daily La Gaceta del Sur, which had disappeared in 1931. The Catholic hierarchy of Granada decided to launch a new newspaper, counting on the collaboration of journalists such as Ángel Herrera Oria y de Pedro Gómez Aparicio.[5] The newspaper went to the streets for the first time on May 8, 1932.[6] It was edited by Editorial Católica.[7] In these early years of existence was a clearly confessional and conservative newspaper,[8] and its main journalistic rival was the liberal El Defensor de Granada.[9] In the context of the 1930s, Ideal was the best manufactured newspaper in the province,[10] surpassing others published in this period.[b] During this era, it highlighted the work of Ramón Ruiz Alonso,[10] the paper's typographer.[12] During the years of the Second Republic the publication, which reached a circulation of 9000 copies,[13] according to CEDA.[14]

On 10 March 1936 a group of right wing supporters [c] set fire to the offices of Ideal, whose printing press was destroyed and the premises reduced to the foundations. [16] As a consequence, the newspaper did not circulate for some months. In early July, the newspaper returned to Granada, shortly before the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War.

SupplementsEdit

On Sundays, like many other newspapers in the Grupo Vocento, Ideal distributes the supplement XLSemanal. It is a general journal, with reports and collaborations from writers like Arturo Pérez-Reverte and Juan Manuel de Prada.
