De Groene Amsterdammer
De Groene Amsterdammer is an independent Dutch weekly newsmagazine published in Amsterdam and distributed throughout the Netherlands. It is conventionally considered to be one of the four most influential written media in its sector, along with HP/De Tijd, Vrij Nederland and Elsevier.
History and profile
De Groene Amsterdammer was founded in 1877, making it one of the oldest Dutch newsmagazines still in existence. The magazine started under the name De Amsterdammer, meaning The Amsterdammer. In its early days green ink was used, later causing the word groene (green) to be added to its name when a second newspaper in Amsterdam was published under the same name De Amsterdammer. The name De Groene Amsterdammer became official in 1925. As its title implies the weekly is based in Amsterdam.
Over the course of time the magazine manifested itself in Dutch media with a wide range of subjects being published about, varying from philosophy, politics and literature to the liberal arts. De Groene Amsterdammer, unlike its name suggests, shows a keen interest in international subjects, with a network of freelance correspondents in various countries over the world.
