Aftenposten is Norway's second largest newspaper with a circulation of 256,600 copies for the morning edition, 155,400 copies for the separate evening edition and 232,900 copies for the Sunday edition in 2003. The paper was long considered the leading serious Norwegian newspaper. Strong competition in a shrinking market has made the paper move in a more popular direction, however, as signified by the choice of converting from broadsheet to tabloid format in 2005. Today there are few major differences in style or content among Aftenposten and its two main competitors, the Oslo tabloids VG and Dagbladet. Image File history File links Aftenposten_logo. ...

Editions

Aftenposten publishes a separate evening edition (called Aftenposten Aften, from February 1, 2006 just Aften) from Monday to Friday. It used to be published on Saturdays as well, but this was dropped with the introduction of the Sunday morning edition in 1990. The evening edition focuses more on local news for the Oslo area. Home delivery of the evening edition is limited to the local area and is generally not available at newsstands in other parts of the country. The evening edition has been printed as a tabloid since 1997. Starting in April 2006, Aften will print four localized editions on Thursdays, each focusing on a part of the city of Oslo.

Historically, Aftenposten labelled itself as "independent, conservative", most closely aligning their editorial platform to the Norwegian Conservative Party, Høyre. This manifested itself in blunt anti-communist opinions during the time between the two world wars. Before and during the Second World War the newspaper had clear fascist sympathies. It was in Aftenposten Knut Hamsun's infamous eulogy over Adolf Hitler was printed, on May 7, 1945.

Editorial line

The newspaper has traditionally been seen as conservative. Some external observers believe that Aftenposten has somewhat moved its editorial line to the left after the end of the Cold War, which can be seen in its criticism of Israel, of the 2003 Invasion of Iraq and of the conservative candidate to become new bishop of Oslo. The Cold War was the protracted geopolitical, ideological, and economic struggle that emerged after World War II between the global superpowers of the Soviet Union and the United States, supported by their military alliance partners. ...

In general, Aftenposten articles do not explicitly endorse any political faction in Norwegian politics.


Languages

Aftenposten is published in Riksmål, or Traditional Standard Norwegian, an unofficial but widely used conservative form of the Norwegian language. In 1990 Aftenposten adopted a newer reform of the Riksmål language form. This meant that traditional Riksmål forms such as efter (after), nu (now) sne (snow) and sprog (language) were replaced by newer forms (etter, nå, snø, språk).


The online version of the paper has a large English section, and is one of the favourite sources for Norwegian news in English. These are typically aimed at people of Norwegian descent, especially from the United States, who are interested in Norway but are not fluent in the language. The English language is a West Germanic language that originates in England. ...
