Der Standard

With the founding of Der Standard in 1988 the publisher Oscar Bronner established Austria's first politically liberal newspaper. The paper does not belong to any media company and therefore considers itself beyond the dominant political and economic division of power between the Social Democrats (SPÖ) and the People's Party (ÖVP). Der Standard currently reaches more readers than its direct competitor Die Presse. Unlike other Austrian newspapers there is no agreement between editors and publishers to ensure editorial independence. The online edition of Der Standard ( ) is one of the leading German-language news portals.
