"Yedioth Ahronoth" ( _he. ידיעות אחרונות, Audio|Yediot aharonot.ogg|"Yedi'ot Aharonot", lit. "Latest News") is a major Hebrew language daily newspaper published in Israel.

The paper is currently published in tabloid format and style, and whilst not as sensationalist as some tabloids in other countries, it emphasises "drama and human interest over sophisticated analysis". [Wolfsfeld, G. (1997) [http://books.google.com/books?id=Ccvg1Ln6_VQC&pg=PA96&lpg=PA96&dq=Yediot+Ahronot+tabloid+or+not&source=web&ots=5iJYPqBYKI&sig=Q0lzX04Zzz7w_NZR4Se2nH74kfA&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=1&ct=result Media and Political Conflict] ISBN 0521589673 ] Nevertheless, it has been described as "undoubtedly the country's number-one paper". [ [http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Society_&_Culture/press.html The Israeli Press] Jewish Virtual Library] The paper gives a wide range of views and space for both political left and right.

One of the first privately owned Israeli newspapers, it was founded in 1939 by Nachum Komarov and was shortly after bought by Yehuda Mozes. Its first managing editor was Noah Mozes, Yehuda Mozes' son.

In 1948, a large group of journalists and staff members led by Azriel Carlebach, who was Editor at the time, left to form another newspaper Yedioth Maariv, later known as Maariv. Carlebach was replaced with Herzl Rosenblum. This began a still on-going battle for circulation and prestige between the rival newspapers, which peaked during the 1990s when both papers were discovered to have bugged one another's phones.

Today, the paper is headed by Noah Mozes's son, Arnon Mozes. For many years it was edited by Herzl Rosenblum's son, Moshe Vardi, who was replaced in 2005 by Rafi Ginat.

It is owned by the Yedioth Ahronoth Group, which also owns stocks in several Israeli companies, such as "Channel 2", a commercial television channel; "Hot", the Cable TV company; "Yedioth Tikshoret", a group of weekly local newspapers; "Vesti", a Russian language newspaper; magazines; and other non-media companies. Shilo De-Beer was promoted to editor in April 2007 [cite news | first= | last=Asaf Carmel | coauthors= | title=Back to the Future| date=April 30, 2007 | publisher= | url =http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/854191.html | work =Haaretz | pages = | accessdate = | language = ] .
