Morgenavisen

Morgenavisen is a former Norwegian daily newspaper, published in Bergen, Norway from 1902 to 1984. Its first editor was Anders Stilloff, who edited the newspaper from 1902 to 1915.[1]

From its establishment the newspaper was a supporter of businessman and politician Christian Michelsen, and eventually also a supporter for his new political party, the Liberal Left Party. Later the newspaper became a supporter for the Conservative Party. During World War II Morgenavisen had installed a Nazi editor.[2] From 1942 Morgenavisen and Bergens Tidende were the only two remaining newspapers in Bergen, as Bergens Aftenblad and Dagen ceased publication.[3] Three other major newspapers published in Bergen, Gula Tidend, Arbeidet and Bergens Arbeiderblad, had stopped earlier in the war. Gula Tidend stopped its publication already on 10 April 1940.[4] The Communist newspaper Arbeidet was forbidden from August 1940,[5] and Bergens Arbeiderblad was forbidden from 4 January 1941.[6]

In 1945 the newspaper bought Bergens Aftenblad. In 1977 Morgenavisen was the largest newspaper supporting the Conservative Party in Western Norway, with a circulation of around 11,000.[2] The newpaper presented a petition for compulsary winding-up in February 1984, after a failed fund-raising effort.[7]
