How it got there: After the demise of Voldemort (also known as He Who Must Not Be Named or You Know Who), witches and wizards had to find creative ways to let other know of the good news. What must be understood is that during these times a lot of Muggle born (and some half blood) witches and wizards went into hiding in the Muggle world to escape persecution. They cut their ties to the Wizarding world. Because of that, some of them would not have heard about Voldemort's death. And so, some wizarding folks went about the Muggle world leaving Daily Prophets (no animated versions of it) in just about every Muggle place you could image. This image is an example of that: a Daily Prophet in the Louvre.

How it got there: This copy of the Daily Prophet actually used to belong to the great Harry Potter. When he saw it, he was so enraged by the lies and secrets about his personal life revealed on the front page that he used accidental magic to will it away from him, as far away as possible. It managed to land on a Portkey which took it straight to this Hawaiian beach.

How it got there: Well you see Scorpius, sometimes when a standard of journalistic integrity lower than a Muggle's level of intelligence and a desire to sell papers love each other very much, they get together and make something very special. It's called The Daily Prophet and we use it to tell other wizards what to think.

How it got there: After Joseph Pulitzer and the other newspaper owners refused to cover the story of the newsboys strike, the Daily Prophet (their American branch, of course) stepped in to offer some help when one of their up and coming reporters took pity on the boys. Most people don't know that the strike was actually ended with the help of a little magical intervention.
