Founded in Munich in 1945, this "intellectual newspaper of German left-wing liberalism” is the nation’s other daily mainstay, alongside the FAZ. The SZ, renowned for its independence, is also famed for its Streiflicht, a daily front-page column that offers an ironic take on current events, as well the main feature on page 3. Much of this broadsheet is given over to coverage and analysis of national and international news. Some of the articles on the website are enhanced with SZ-produced videos. It also devotes a special site for the younger generation : jetzt.de.
