CSP NEWSPAPER INDUSTRY

I may spin off further posts, but I intend to build up hub posts on each CSP. On newspapers there will be a post for the TimesDaily Mirror; and the wider industry/key terms. Note that its likely the CSP text will change each year - the newspaper editions will be updated - but the two chosen CSP newspapers are unlikely to change. They have been chosen to reflect a binary opposition of tabloid v quality, left-wing v right-wing, and British v globalised ownership.
