fact no.6

On this day, 1846, the first edition of the Daily News which was edited by Charles Dickens was published in London!

The News was founded in 1846 by Charles Dickens, he served as the first editor of the paper. It is believed it was put together as a “radical rival” to the right-wing Morning Chronical!? However, as great as Dickens was the paper initially was not at first a commercial success. During his life Dickens then edited 17 issues of the Daily News before handing over the editorship to his friend John Forster.

The actual term Dickensian is used to describe something that is reminiscent of Dickens and his writings.
