Jyllands-Posten was founded in 1871 for the Jutland region but quickly developed into a national paper. The JP/Politikens Hus media group, which also publishes the daily Politiken and the tabloid Ekstra Bladet, has been its publisher since 2003. Jyllands-Posten caused an international furore in 2005 by printing the Muhammad cartoons, which plunged Denmark into a foreign policy crisis.
