JP/Politikens Hus A/S (House of JP/Politiken) is a Danish media company.

History and profile[edit]

JP/Politikens Hus was established on 1 January 2003 as a merger between Politikens Hus and Jyllands-Posten A/S, publishing companies of the major broadsheet newspapers Politiken and Jyllands-Posten, respectively.[1] The company also own Politiken's tabloid Ekstra Bladet, Watch Medier and Finans. A free daily, 24timer, was added in 2006 (closed/merged in 2013).

In addition to publishing these newspapers, JP/Politikens Hus' businesses also include book publishing, printing, local newspapers in Denmark and Sweden, as well as a number of multi-media concerns.

The merger between the publishing companies was administrative, and editorial independence was retained. The conservative-leaning Jyllands-Posten and the social liberal Politiken have often been in opposition to each other. The former's Muhammed cartoons were heavily criticised by the latter.[citation needed]
