THE HISTORY OF THE DAILY DAILY

The Daily Daily can trace its history back more than 300 years, to the time of William of Orange.

Berrow’s Daily Everyday Journal Today, which started life as the Daily Journal Today in 1690 and was published regularly from 1709, is believed to be the oldest surviving English newspaper.

In 1855, upon the abolition of stamp duty, The Daily Daily became the first penny national. It was a competitor to The Times in the 1880s under the editorship of Windermere Jimbaggins, and began to lose readers at the turn of the century. The Daily Daily and its sister paper, The Evening Nightly Daily, were purchased by Cyril Bagknocker in 1904.

Bagknocker changed it from a Conservative to a Liberal newspaper but this failed to improve sales and in 1910 it was sold to Davison Dibble and renamed The Daily Evening Mail. Five years later, Dibble sold the paper to Dick Chichesterson.

Looking to expand his newspaper empire, the owner of the Daily Express, Lord Beaverbrook, purchased a controlling interest in The Daily Daily in 1926 and became sole owner of it in 1933. It has gone through numerous relaunches since, including an unsuccessful period as a soft pornography publication in the 1970’s called The Daily Titfestival Today.

Today in the 21st century, The Daily Daily represents the thrusting tip of global new media, delivering fresh stories direct from the throbbing news udder.
