Street vendors are out before 6 a.m. every day hawking the various daily papers, but you can often pick one up in most corner stores. La Prensa (www.laprensa.com.ni ) was so aggressively anti-Somoza in the 1970s, the dictator allegedly had the editor, Pedro Joaquín Chamorro, assassinated. Not long after the revolution, La Prensa turned anti-Sandinista and remains anti-Danielista to this day. In the days before an election, La Prensa typically runs a regular series of “flashback” articles recalling the atrocities of the Contra war in the 1980s and dredging up every unresolved Sandinista scandal available.
El Nuevo Diario (www.elnuevodiario.com.ni ) offers competing coverage of local news and events, sometimes with a New York Post–ish tabloidy spin.
International papers and magazines are sold in Managua  at the Casa de Café, a kiosk on the first floor of the Plaza Metrocentro, and in the lobbies of the major hotels.
Created in 1981 to spread the news about the revolution to the English-speaking world, Envío (www.envio.org.ni ) remains an interesting print and online magazine, providing “information and analysis of Nicaragua from Nicaragua.”
HECHO (www.hechomagazine.com ) is a gorgeously designed, thoughtful Managua-based magazine, created in 2009 to celebrate Nicaraguan culture and art; HECHO is a great resource for live music and event information.
