Der Standard

Daily newspaper

The Standard is one of the two most widely read quality newspapers in Austria. Founded in 1988 with the aim of becoming a New York Times for Austria, it describes itself as liberal and politically independent, and is generally considered to be centre-left in orientation. Its wide-reaching website often plays a pioneering role in Austrian online journalism, especially in terms of user engagement.
