Jyllands-Posten

Morgenavisen Jyllands-Posten (Danish pronunciation: [ˈmɒːˀn̩æˌviːˀsn̩ ˈjylænsˌpʰɒstn̩] (listen); English: The Morning Newspaper "The Jutland Post"), commonly shortened to Jyllands-Posten or JP, is a Danish daily broadsheet newspaper. It is based in Viby, a suburb of Aarhus, Jutland, and with a weekday circulation of approximately 120,000 copies, it is among the largest-selling newspapers in Denmark. The foundation behind the newspaper, Jyllands-Postens Fond, defines it as an independent liberal (centre-right) newspaper. The paper officially supported the Conservative People's Party until 1938. The newspaper was the subject of a major controversy concerning cartoons that depicted the Islamic prophet Muhammad in 2005–2006 which sparked violent protests around the world, and have led to several attempted terrorist plots against the newspaper or its employees in the years since.
