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 still feels the repercussions of this controversy to this day. In early 2020, the paper drew the wrath of the Chinese government with an illustration of the coronavirus that graced the Chinese flag. Like all media in Denmark, JP increasingly puts its focus on digital offers - but, it claims, it has the same quality standards as in print. In 2020, for the first time, the salaries of the CEOs and the CEO of JP / Politikens Hus were published in detail. Their high amounts and raises excited the tempers, as they are far above the salaries of journalists.
