The Daily Prophet is The only major wizarding newspaper in Britain, headquartered in Diagon Alley in London, England, the paper is delivered by owl to wizarding households throughout England and Ireland. A subscription costs one Knut, and can be paid by placing placing the payment into a small pouch tied to the delivery owl’s leg.
Founded in 1743, the Daily Prophet had covered the most important events in the wizarding world since it was founded. In the early days the Daily Prophet was truly its own entity, and as such, was openly critical of the Ministry of Magic during the rise of Gellert Grindelwald. This ability to be critical of those in power would diminish over the years, especially during Cornelius Fudge’s reign as Minister of Magic. He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named’s second rise to power was wildly mishandled by the Daily Prophet, but after the fall of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, in 1998, Kingsley Shacklebolt became the Minister of Magic, and the corruption of the Daily Prophet finally ended.
