The Daily Planet is both a newspaper and the building where said universe is organized in the DC Universe and is most notably where Clark Kent is employed.


Golden Age (Earth 2)

Though Clark Kent was seen working for several newspapers early in his career, they went by the named the Daily Star and the Daily Globe.  Eventually Kent began working at the Daily Planet, which may or may not be the same paper with a different name.  Its first publisher, Burt Mason, was a man of integrity who is shown to report on political corruption even when threatened.  Burt Mason is also shown helping another newspaper, the Gateston Gazette, after the Gazette's equipment is destroyed by racketeers.

From then on, Perry White, the Editor-in-Chief, is seen as having control of all day-to-day operations, seemingly answering to no one most of the time.  Lois Lane is also seen working with Kent and about the same time Clark is shown regularly writing for the Daily Planet, Lois Lane was also working for it.
