Das war’s dann wohl.
(deep sigh, a sip from a coffee in a Vienna café, and a long stare out of the window)
Was it only paid for by these adverts, do they not have a licences fee like the bbc?
A license fee for a newspaper would be strange. Like any newspaper they were supported by a mixture of ads, subscriptions and newsstand sales. The law just meant that there was a steady stream of ads coming in.
I was more thinking that it may have been part of a larger gov org, like the BBC, rather than stand alone. The BBC does so much in the uk, between like 30 local radio stations, 8 national ones, 5 tv channels, 24 hours news, web-based news, the weather.
The idea of a nation press, just being a newspaper sounds antiquated, do they have other national state news / brodcasters?
Oh yeah. The ORF is the equivalent of the BBC, producing TV and radio.
