List of Newspapers in The United Kingdom - Local Newspapers in England and The Crown Dependencies

Local Newspapers in England and The Crown Dependencies

Most towns and cities in the UK have at least one local newspaper, such as the Evening Post in Bristol and The Echo in Cardiff. They are not known nationally for their journalism in the way that (despite much syndication) city-based newspapers in the USA are (e.g. The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe). An exception to this was the well-regarded Manchester Guardian, which dropped the "Manchester" from its name (1959) and relocated its main operations to London (1964). The Guardian Media Group produced a Mancunian paper, the Manchester Evening News until 2010 when the MEN and its other local newspapers in the Greater Manchester area were sold to Trinity Mirror.

Famous quotes containing the words crown, local, newspapers and/or england:

    All hail! the pow’r of Jesus’ Name;
    Let angels prostrate fall;
    Bring forth the Royal Diadem,
    To crown Him Lord of all.
    Edward Perronet (1726–1792)

    Reporters for tabloid newspapers beat a path to the park entrance each summer when the national convention of nudists is held, but the cult’s requirement that visitors disrobe is an obstacle to complete coverage of nudist news. Local residents interested in the nudist movement but as yet unwilling to affiliate make observations from rowboats in Great Egg Harbor River.
    —For the State of New Jersey, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    Old England liberty—to be robbed by the Ministry, and insulted by the populace without redress.
    —J.G. (John Gabriel)
