Founded in 1993 by the powerful Burda media group, this modern, conservative, free-market-geared newsmagazine, chock-a-block with brief articles and computer graphics, is out to rival Der Spiegel. Unlike the latter, however, Focus focuses more on facts than analysis, and more on airing the opinions of politicians and public figures than those of its own editors.
The website is heavier on business news and practical services: Stocks and Bonds, Money, Mobiles, Career, Cars etc. Articles from the weekly paper issue are not available on the site.
Was this article useful? If so we are delighted! It is freely available because we believe that the right to free and independent information is essential for democracy. But this right is not guaranteed forever, and independence comes at a cost. We need your support in order to continue publishing independent, multilingual news for all Europeans.
