This chapter investigates the extent to which transnational dimensions of Euroscepticism have become visible in the European public sphere. It does so by comparing the news visibility of Eurosceptic MEP candidates during the 2009 and 2014 election campaigns in nine countries from the North, South, East and West of Europe. The underlying rationale of the comparison is to test whether the Eurozone crisis has impacted on their transnational visibility. We indeed find that Eurosceptic candidate MEPs receive more news attention in the 2014 EP elections than in the 2009 election. However, only few prominent candidates receive transnational news attention.
