Mladá fronta Dnes (Young Front Today), also known as MF DNES or simply Dnes (Today), is the second most sold daily newspaper in the Czech Republic. Its name could be translated into English as Youth Front Today. The paper is owned by MAFRA a.s., the Czech subsidiary of the German group Rheinisch-Bergische Druckerei- und Verlagsgesellschaft GmbH (the publisher of the Rheinische Post), that bought it from French press group Socpresse in 1994. MAFRA a.s. also owns the Czech daily Lidové noviny, the Czech edition of the freesheet Metro, the TV music channel Óčko, the radio stations Expresradio and Rádio Classic FM.
Právo (in Czech Right or Law) is a Czech daily newspaper, the third most sold in the country. It emerged following the Velvet Revolution, when some editors of the daily Rudé právo founded a new company unaffiliated with the Czechoslovak Communist Party but taking advantage of the existing reader base. Today, the paper is not directly linked to any political party, but maintains a moderate left-wing stance and tends to focus on social issues.
