The Press in Portugal

Newspaper readership in Portugal is fairly low when compared to other countries in the European Union (EU). 1999 figures show only 73.5 people per 1000 take a daily paper compared to over 600 people per 1000 in the UK. During the Salazar dictatorship, the press was heavily censored and post-revolution newspapers filled with revolutionary propaganda putting many Portuguese off the newspaper-reading habit. The Correio da Manha is the largest selling tittle-tattle tabloid.
