DAGBLAÐIÐ (The Daily Paper) was an Icelandic newspaper founded in 1975 by former employees of another newspaper, VÍSIR, with Jónas Kristjánsson as its first editor. It marked a breakthrough in Icelandic newspaper publication as it was the first major newspaper that was independent of political parties. Its first edition was published on 8 September the same year.
     In 1981, DAGBLAÐIÐ and VÍSIR merged to create the tabloid DV (DAGBLAÐIÐ VÍSIR).
