Die Presse

Die Presse is one of Austria's oldest established newspapers. It began as a moderately conservative newspaper in the revolution year of 1848, sided with the opposition after the crushing of the revolution, was banned, re-launched and finally became what it is today: the paper of choice of Austria's educated class and civil servants. In 2004 the layout was changed. In recent times Die Presse has distanced itself from the People's Party ÖVP and opened itself up to a green readership, but it still maintains its Catholic orientation. The owner Styria Medien AG launched a Sunday edition, the Presse am Sonntag, in 2009.
