The Daily Globe is a newspaper in Liberty City and San Andreas in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V. The player can buy stocks from them at the Bawsaq.com website in GTA V.

Description

The paper appears to be little known in comparison to other newspapers, and it does not operate a website. Despite its obscurity, pedestrians can be seen holding and reading the newspaper, and the newspaper is implied to be operating from a large, modern skyscraper in The Triangle, Algonquin, which bears both its name and its logo.

By the setting of Grand Theft Auto V, the paper appears to have expanded its profile. Its central building can be found at the intersection of San Andreas Avenue and Las Lagunas Boulevard in Pillbox Hill, Downtown Los Santos, and it also has offices in Vinewood. Occasionally, after completing a mission, the player can read articles written by the Daily Globe in the in-game internet. Their phone number is 555-0111. There is a copy in the prologue on the bench in the building that Michael, Trevor and Brad rob. It is right next to a copy of the Talkin’ Balls! magazine.

Influence

It is mostly based on the Metro International newspaper, bearing a remarkably similar logo (white text over a green rectangle with a grid globe incorporated onto the design).

The newspaper is a play on the Daily Planet, the paper that Clark Kent works for in the Superman universe. The main building of the Daily Globe also has a globe on its top, clearly resembling the main building of the Daily Planet.
