Darren Cullen Gives Away Tiny Terrible Newspaper Read Lubaina Himid unveils 'Random Coincidence' artwork after spending time behind the scenes at The Guardian Read RRU artist Patrick Thomas takes BREAKING NEWS project on tour Read

As part of his second intervention for RRU News, Darren Cullen examines ownership of British newspapers and discovered that the Metro is in fact owned by the Daily Mail…

Darren explains – “As part of my residency with RRU News I’d been looking into the ownership of the various papers and was surprised to find out that Metro newspaper is owned by by Daily Mail and General Trust plc, and recently also became the largest circulated paper in the UK. The free copies being read by commuters generate hundreds of thousands pounds a day for the Daily Mail’s owners through advertising sales (sales priced according to the paper’s verified circulation/readership.) Most people aren’t aware of who owns the Metro and I figured a fair chunk of them might stop picking it up if they knew who they were supporting, so I’ve printed 2000 of these stickers to try and stink up Metro’s brand.”
