Why Trinity Mirror is aggregating news from other publishers for its new app

Trinity Mirror’s newest app does something not a lot of publishers’ news apps do: Perspecs features up to 10 curated stories from other publishers, published as a daily edition. With each story, three different articles will run with opposing viewpoints, representing the left-leaning, neutral, and right-leaning perspective on the story. Trinity Mirror’s head of product, regionals, apps and email Darren Sher says: “The idea is to offer news analysis beyond what’s breaking and provide different perspectives on the news. … The point is, there are usually three sides to any story.”
