Fréttablaðið (English: The Newspaper) is the Icelandic newspaper with the largest circulation. Fréttablaðið is in Icelandic and is distributed free of charge to homes in parts of the country. Each paper is read by about 60% and at any given time only 20% will not have read it at all over the past week.
Fréttablaðið is published 6 days per week, Monday - Saturday.
It is published by the media group 365 prentmiðlar.
Fréttablaðið has been accused of siding politically with the Social Democratic Alliance (Samfylkingin) and for favouring Icelandic membership of the European Union. However, many of its editors have had ties with its main political opponent the conservative Independence Party (Sjálfstæðisflokkurinn) and its former editor-in-chief and regular columnist is its former leader and Prime Minister Þorsteinn Pálsson.
