British publisher to launch newspaper despite declining readership
Feb 22, London: A British publisher said that it has launching the country's first new national paper in 30 years, despite rapidly declining newspaper sales and readers switching to online websites.
Trinity Mirror said that The New Day would stand out from other British newspapers because it will be politically neutral and will not have an op-ed column.
Alison Phillips, who will edit the paper, said Monday "we will just tell the story straight" because readers do not want to be told what they should think, according to media reports.
The paper will hit newsstands next week. It will have a presence on social media, but will not have a website, The Associated Press reports.
