Since USAIRWAYS321 already did the US, here's the situation in Slovenia, a brand new EU member:
The #1 paper in terms of circulation is called Slovenske Novice
), but it's a horrible tabloid which no-one takes seriously. It isn't considered serious competition to anyone, at least in terms of quality. AFAIK, the paper doesn't even have a website.
The same publishing group owns the most respected daily in the country, Delo
). This used to be the main newspaper in the Communist era, but has managed to retain its position due to generally good journalism. For some reason, the paper's website is poorly designed, and trails behind its two less influential competitors: http://www.delo.si/
) used to focus more on Ljubljana, but has since become a national publication. It is known for its left-of-center perspective. Its website is among the most user-friendly news sites in Slovenia: http://www.dnevnik.si
(Since this is an aviation site, note the Aeroflot ad on the front page -- which is interesting since SU
doesn't even fly to LJU
, but codeshares with JP
) is based in Slovenia's second city of Maribor and has a decidedly regional perspective. It is distributed nationally, though, and has a pretty nice website: http://www.vecer.si/
BTW, despite its traditional name, it is a morning
newspaper, as are the others.
These four are the only daily newspapers in Slovenia (pop. less than 2 million). In the nineties, three dailies -- the right-wing Slovenec
), the leftist Republika
), and the right-of center Jutranjik
(The Morning Paper
) -- all failed. Jutranjik
didn't even last a month.
