LONDON (Reuters Breakingviews) - Lord Rothermere, chairman of the Daily Mail and General Trust, reckons Paul Dacre is the greatest UK newspaper editor of his generation.

LONDON The editor of Britain's Daily Mail tabloid Paul Dacre will stand down after 26 years in November to become chairman and editor-in-chief of the title's publisher, Associated Newspapers, Daily Mail and General Trust said on Wednesday.
