The Daily News Online, the Daily Journal Online and The Daily Express are now collectively called The Daily Press.
The decision to separate the papers came after an internal review of the papers, which found the online papers were not compliant with the editorial standards of the Guardian and The Sunday Times, The Daily Mail said.
The review found the daily papers were “at odds with each other on the editorial agenda” and the news organisations’ “concerns about their independence and the quality of their coverage,” the Daily Mail reported.
“The paper has always had a strong editorial ethos, and this has always been the case,” a spokesperson said.
“We remain committed to editorial standards, but this is a difficult period for us to navigate.”
This is the first step towards a new direction for our company, which will be announced in the coming weeks.
“With this in mind, the editors of the daily and the Sunday papers have agreed to collaborate to ensure that all articles and articles appear in a consistent way across all of our platforms.”
At the same time, the papers will be overseen by a team of journalists from across the papers and the Guardian will continue to be a leader in digital journalism.
