Newsweek Polska is a Polish language weekly news magazine published in Poland as the Polish edition of Newsweek.

History

Newsweek Polska was established in 2001.[1][2] The founder of the weekly is Tomasz Wróblewski.[3]

The magazine is owned by Axel Springer.[4] It is based in Warsaw and is published weekly on Mondays.[1] Although it is Polish version of Newsweek, it does not fully cover the translations of the articles published in its parent magazine.[2]

Tomasz Wróblewski was also the first editor-in-chief and served in the post between 2001 and 2004, and then between 2005 and 2006.[5] Jarosław Sroka was the editor-in-chief in 2004.[5] From 2006 to 2009 Michał Kobosko was the editor-in-chief.[5] He was replaced by Wojciech Maziarski who was in office between 2009 and 2012.[5] Tomasz Lis has been the editor-in-chief of the weekly since 2012.[5][6]

Ideology

Newsweek has promoted a variety of views, mostly depending on those held by the current editor-in-chief, although it has traditionally been associated with liberal politics, much like the Gazeta Wyborcza. Ever since Tomasz Lis took over as editor-in-chief, the magazine has taken a more radically anticlerical and anti-conservative approach; the editorial board is frequently subjected to criticism from Law and Justice leader Jarosław Kaczyński. The cover of the 1 April 2015 issue featured Kaczyński with a caption saying "Assassin", implying his responsibility for the alleged "assassination" of Polish national unity in the aftermath of the 2010 Smolensk plane crash.[7]

Circulation

The circulation of Newsweek Polska in March 2009 was 192,000 copies.[8] The magazine had a circulation of 114,309 copies in 2010 and 106,509 copies in 2011.[9] It was 123,225 copies in 2012.[9] The print and e-edition circulation of the weekly was 119,776 in August 2014.[10]
