De Morgen

De Morgen is a left-wing quality paper based in Flanders which developed from socialist party papers in 1978. The paper struggled financially and had to be rescued by its readers several times until it was acquired by De Persgroep publishing group in 1989. Under the leadership of senior editor Yves Desmet it made a name for itself as a fresher alternative to the other Flemish quality papers. It has received several awards for its design. Its columnists include politicians like the liberal ex-prime minister Guy Verhofstad and the Flemish nationalist Bart De Wever.
