The Daily Telegraph (Australia)

The Daily Telegraph is a tabloid newspaper published in Sydney, Australia by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation.

The Tele as it is affectionately known was founded in 1879 and was a staple in Sydney print media right up until 1990 when it was merged with its afternoon sister paper The Daily Mirror to form The Daily Telegraph-Mirror with morning and afternoon editions at first although the afternoon editions were later discontinued.

The new paper continued in this vein until January 1996 when under reader pressure for a less elongated title, the name of the paper reverted to The Daily Telegraph, despite staff concerns that former Mirror readers would now feel disenfranchised.

Like its British counterpart, the paper maintains a strong right wing conservative lean though it has yet to share the nickname of "ToryGraph".
