Die Presse is an Austrian daily newspaper based in Vienna. It was founded in 1946 by World War II resistance fighter Ernst Molden and stands in tradition of the Viennese newspapers "Die Presse" (1848–1896) (founded by August Zang) and "Neue Freie Presse" (1864–1938; founded by Max Friedländer).

Der Standard is an Austrian national daily newspaper which is published in Vienna (although the paper is produced in Tulln an der Donau in Lower Austria due to that Bundesland's lower taxes). It was founded by Oscar Bronner as a financial newspaper and the first edition was published on 1988-10-19. Bronner remains the paper's publisher and he is also nominally the editor-in-chief along with Alexandra Föderl-Schmid, who handles the day-to-day editing. When Föderl-Schmid took over from Gerfried Sperl in July 2007, Der Standard became the first Austrian newspaper to have a female editor-in-chief. Der Standard sees itself as - in Continental European sense (social and cultural, but not economical) - liberal and independent.
