Daily newspaper


Jyllands-Posten was founded in 1871 for the Jutland region but quickly developed into a national paper. The JP/Politikens Hus media group, which also publishes the daily Politiken and the tabloid Ekstra Bladet, has been its publisher since 2003. Jyllands-Posten caused an international furore and sparked protests in 2005 by printing the Muhammad cartoons, which plunged Denmark into a foreign policy crisis. The paper is still feeling the repercussions of this controversy and its journalists work under heavy security due to threats.
