The only exceptions were 'Der Angriff', edited by Goebbels, which on the whole was restricted to Berlin yet achieved considerable importance, and the 'Volkischer Beobachter'. The picture changes with the rise of the NSDAP in 1930. Up to this time, in addition to the papers already mentioned, the party had at its disposal 12 small daily newspapers (against the 170 of the SPD), 34 weekly papers, a few monthly magazines, an illustrated newspaper, and a parliamentary letter, with a total circulation of barely 700,000 copies. See Karl Dietrich Bracher, "Die Auflosung der Weimarer Republik". The quoted words come from Mein Kampf.
