Datajournalism on Austria’s Heute

Heute-publisher Eva Dichand tried to silence Austrian website Dossier when they anounced a investigation into the advertising revenue of the free daily.

Dossier was intimidated and published three stories on Heute. They also showed some visualisations of the advertising revenues. The city of Vienna is one of the largest sponsors of the paper (click for large version). In total Heute receives around 30% of its income from public sources.


Der Standard used the data for visualisations of their own.
