The Wall Street Journal is one of the largest newspapers in the United States by circulation. According to News Corp, in its June 2018 10-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Journal had a circulation of about 2.475 million copies (including nearly 1,590,000 digital subscriptions) as of June 2018,[1] compared with USA Today’s 1.7 million. The newspaper, which has won 37 Pulitzer Prizes through 2017, derives its name from Wall Street in the heart of the Financial District of Lower Manhattan.

The Journal also publishes the luxury news and lifestyle magazine WSJ, which was originally launched as a quarterly but expanded to 12 issues as of 2014. An online version was launched in 1996, which has been accessible only to subscribers since it began. The editorial pages of the Journal are frequently conservative in their position.
