Sydsvenskan sees itself as an advocate of the region surrounding Malmö in southern Sweden. It was one of the few Swedish papers to publish a Muhammad cartoon in 2005. Sydsvenskan belongs to the Bonnier media group and was closely aligned with the conservative Rightist Party (now the Moderate Party) until 1966. Since 1966 it has stated its editorial position as "independent liberal". In 2014 it was announced that 180 jobs would be cut at Sydsvenskan and its sister paper Helsingborg Dagblad.
