Title El Evangelio: The story of a rebel paper that fought for journalism’s credibility in 1901 Summary In the early 20th century, a visibly anticlerical newspaper in Madrid, dedicated to reporting on the corruption and cronyism of the ministers of the Borbon Restoration, surprised with its name: 'El Evangelio'. 'El Evangelio' was a newspaper that opted for the practice of good journalism, the avoidance of propaganda, and scrutinized the implementation of good governance. During its short life, the two years of 1901 and 1902, it was the target of accusations and persecution. This article is based on the analysis of the copies stored at the National Library and the Madrid Newspaper Library, and discusses the style, structure and subject range of the publication. The examination of its pages, signatures and sections reveals the character of the Spanish journalism of the era, and its similarities with contemporary journalism. Keywords Journalism, politics,anticlericalism, free newspapers,independence, exactitude, fin-de-siècle.
