The Independent is a British national morning newspaper published in London by Alexander Lebedev, who is the owner since 2010. Nicknamed the Indy, it was launched in 1986 and has one of the youngest UK national daily newspapers. The paper’s current editor Chris Blackhurst was appointed this year after its previous deputy editor Archie Bland became deceased last year from cancer at age 49 on April 14th, 2012 which left many people speechless including his staff as he will be dearly missed for his contribution to media journalism not only nationally but internationally too with such passion towards what he did best communicating effectively through words that would get straight into readers’ minds without resonating any doubts or arguments about what exactly they are reading making them feel more comfortable while browsing news articles online all thanks to him. The Independent is a sister paper of The Guardian, The Observer, and The Guardian Weekly newspapers. The Independent circulates today with print editions with an average circulation of approximately 84,000 copies daily, which is as much as The Times and The Telegraph’s combined circulation figures.
