De Volkskrant

Until the 1960s the organ of the Catholic workers' movement. In the wake of the student uprisings confessional affiliations were dropped and De Volkskrant became the country's leading leftist newspaper. Together with Trouw and AD it belongs to the Belgian publisher De Persgroep. Since 2010 the paper has appeared in tabloid format. Circulation has dropped in recent years as a result of the global economic crisis.
