JP/Politikens Hus A/S (House of JP/Politiken) is a Danish media company. It was established on January 1, 2003 as a merger of the publishing companies of the major broadsheet newspapers Jyllands-Posten and Politiken as well as Politiken's tabloid Ekstra Bladet. A free daily, 24timer, was added in 2006.
In addition to publishing these newspapers, JP/Politikens Hus' businesses also include book publishing, printing, local newspapers in Denmark and Sweden, as well as a number of multi-media concerns.
The merger between the publishing companies was administrative, and editorial independence was retained. The conservative-leaning Jyllands-Posten and the social liberal Politiken have often been in opposition to each other. The former's Muhammed cartoons were heavily criticised by the latter.
