This is one of the most popular national newspapers in the Netherlands. I am learning to speak Dutch.

It is google translate friendly for non-Dutch language speakers who are planning a trip to The Netherlands. The news reporting in The Netherlands is factual as one of the societal values is honesty. All news media can have a political slant as regards how the information is reported. But nothing is misleading or lacking in facts.
