The Daily Star goes black after Annahar went white

So The Daily Star went black (Annahar had gone white earlier, but it proved a major controversy as a Turkish newspaper had done it earlier). OK so you can read all about it from the horse's mouth here. Hmmm, well, OK, so The Daily Star is the only English speaking newpsaper in Lebanon, and - well - I am not sure who are its target audience. In the 90s and early aughts it was clearly the expats and the high ranking executives. At a later stage, I am not sure who ended up reading it. Still, there you go another "eloquent" blank edition.
