Expresso was founded in Lisbon under the old regime (in 1973) and became the country's first successful weekly paper. It fought a fierce battle with the censorship authority until the end of the dictatorship in 1974. Thanks to its well researched background reports and a broad spectrum of opinion Expresso is not only the weekly with the highest circulation, but also an indispensable opinion leader in Portugal. Henrique Raposo, a polemic writer known for his irony, has contributed to the paper's website with his blog A Tempo e a Desmodo since 2009.
