The Oklahoman is the largest daily and statewide newspaper in Oklahoma and is the only daily newspaper that covers the entire Oklahoma City metro area. The ownership of the paper by the Gaylord family helped build a multi-billion dollar fortune. The editorial viewpoint has through the years been labeled as conservative, but the leadership of the paper contends it is non-partisan, and reflects the views of its readers.
