Dagens Nyheter

Sweden's biggest and most respected daily, owned by the Swedish Bonnier group. The paper sees itself as a source of information and clarification and calls itself "Sweden's biggest social and democratic market place". Above all the debate articles by external authors and politicians regularly prompt public discussion. In the 1990s Dagens Nyheter entered a crisis marked by a dropping circulation and advertising revenues as a result of competition from the free paper Metro and Svenska Dagbladet . The crisis prompted it to dismiss hundreds of journalists.
