Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One more word to the German newspaper market:

Everybody that looks at Germany knows it has a complicated structure, that same is valid for its news world.

The third most popular/respected newspaper in the world, after the Financial Times and the Wall Street Journal is the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. It is own by a Foundation to guarantee its independence. This is however not the biggest daily broadsheet.  That is the Sueddeutsche Zeitung with about 440.000 printed issues.  

The Sueddeutsche is being printed out of Munich. There are also a number of other very strong regional newspapers. (Leipziger Volkszeitung, f.e)

But as it becomes obvious, Germans leading newspaper never came out of the capital. (unlike Britain, or France. Is there another European Country where this is the case?)

There are of course the Berliner Zeitung, the Tagespiegel and the Tageszeitung (as well as the Neues Deutschland - the PDS newspaper) all out of Berlin. however, they lack the distribution of Sueddeutsche and Faz.
