Danish fun fact of the day

Denmark’s population is around 5.5 million. Its journalists’ union has 15,000 members.

I can’t provide a checkable source for this but it’s what the chair of the Danish journalists’ union told me a week or so ago. He wasn’t joking or exaggerating because, frankly, he was Danish. Seems a high journalist-to-civilian ratio, doesn’t it.  I wonder if their media is better or worse than ours. Anyone know?

Those Danes and their media. I don't know about the hacks but they do do a cartoon (or two) that gets noticed here and there
