The Post (British newspaper)

The Post was a national tabloid newspaper in the United Kingdom, owned by Eddy Shah's Messenger Group.[1] It ran for only five weeks in November and December 1988. As the first national newspaper to be both conceived and composed by journalists, The Post dedicated itself to being sensationalism-free, a bit of a departure for British tabloids of that period.[1] During its short life The Post had the most advanced production techniques devised (which were project-managed and implemented by Bryan Dean and Graham Binns).[citation needed] The paper never found a consistent editorial voice or audience, and folded due to financial pressures just five weeks after starting up.[2]
