  • However, articles dealing with these issues were not given the most of attention, as for example, agriculture questions are also important in most of the counties.
  • Most of the articles were neutral
  • Most of the articles were newswire messages
  • Only 6% of the articles were presented on the first pages
  • In general, regional newspapers did not provide much information about the EU
