PowNed is a Dutch broadcaster, which transmits radio and television programmes on the Netherlands Public Broadcasting system. Each weekday evening it airs a satirical news show called PowNews on Nederland 3, in which politicians and other public and non-public figures are confronted with provocative questions, and often ridiculed.
The broadcaster is affiliated with and was started up with the help of the popular GeenStijl shock blog.
The director of PowNed is Dominique Weesie (who also presents PowNews) and their star reporter is Rutger Castricum. Other reporters include(d) Jojanneke van den Berge, Jan Roos (also presenter of the radio programme Echte Jannen with Jan Dijkgraaf) and Daan Nieber. Several other people involved with PowNed programmes (radio and television) are DJ's Rob Stenders and Bert van Lent, sports presenters Henk Spaan and Hugo Borst (of the TV football programme Heilig Gras), Bas Paternotte (political commentator for Echte Jannen) and Brenno de Winter (ITC commentator for PowNews).
The name is a backronym for Publieke Omroep Weldenkend Nederland En Dergelijke (English: Public broadcaster (for the) well-thinking Netherlands and the like). PowNed claims to serve the network generation and argues heavily (in a tongue-in-cheek style) against baby boomers whom it sees as clinging on to power.
