Political bias[edit]

Dansk Folkeparti (The Danish People's Party), a reactionary nationalistic political party...

That hardly qualifies as a neutral description of the party. Unless anybody objects, I'll delete the relative clause.

IMO it is ok to describe them as being nationalistic (cause they are). Thue | talk 3 July 2005 19:29 (UTC)
I am in total agreement with Thue. To state that they are just a political party would be less than correct (IMO). Sfdan 3 July 2005 19:49 (UTC)
I see now that the Dansk Folkeparti article also describes the party as nationalistic, so I'm OK with that (I also personally agree). Yet, the word "reactionary" seems quite harsh. It is possible to be nationalistic without having reactionary tendencies. --PhoenixV 5 July 2005 13:03 (UTC)

Must say the quality of the English in a lot of this is dire. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:59, 15 December 2015 (UTC) DR/Danmarks Radio

Name has changed long time ago. Officiel name is now DR - should be corrected with redirects from Danmarks Radio

Fair enough -- but it would be good if someone were able to supply the date of that change (and, even better, details of the legislation, if any, which changed the name). DR's own site says: DR hed fra sin oprettelse i 1925 og frem til 1959 Statsradiofonien, derefter Danmarks Radio og nu blot DR (From its creation in 1925 until 1959 DR was known as Statsradiofonien, after that as Danmarks Radio, and now simply as DR). From when does that "nu/now" date? Was it a statutory change or just the adoption of a new "brand name"?
The name was changed from Danmarks Radio to DR in 1996, after a descision made by the board of directors.


The logo used in this article is not the logo of DR, it is the logo of DR1, a television station operated by DR, although the logos seem similar, as the only difference is the missing number one in the DR logo. I suggest that we find the real DR logo somewhere on their homepage. Thrane 16:22, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

The Swedish article on DR includes the present generic logo. Not sure about the copyright status. -- Picapica 08:20, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Missing info[edit]

We need info about the TV-channel DR Update. I'd also like to see info about 16:9/widescreen/palplus. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:45, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

Media License[edit]

The section on the (somewhat new) Media license is misleading. "Tax" is not the correct term in this case, but rather a term used by the people (including myself) who are openly against this license. It does not fit in an encyclopedia that should have a neutral POV. It wasn't forced upon people by DR, but rather by the Ministry of Culture (see this publication). The note about it being against Grundloven §77 (Ytringsfrihed, freedom of speech) is pure speculation and hasn't been tried anywhere. The section contains spelling errors, grammatical errors and "danglish". It has been tagged with Unreferencedsection since 09/2008. I despise the media license but this section reeks of a non-neutral POV. It should either be rewritten or removed. -- (talk) 10:29, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Its also not every owner but every household that owns, that has to pay. E.g. a household of 4 with including a 5 year old child with his/her own television set only needs one license covering all 4, a 19year old student living in a small apartment also needs one license.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked
