Kjarninn (which means the core in Icelandic) was an Icelandic online newspaper founded in August 2013. Previously Kjarninn was a weekly digital news magazine served via Apple App Store aimed at tablet computer users but PDFs were also available at the website. Since September 2014 Kjarninn' was an online-only newspaper. The founders of Kjarninn originally worked at 365's free newspaper Fréttablaðið, which maintained a virtual monopoly on the market (69% in 2004). In February 2013, Magnús Halldórsson, later a journalist at Kjarninn, criticised businessman and former owner Jón Ásgeir Jóhannesson, whose wife Ingibjörg Pálmadóttir was the owner of 365, for trying to influence the editorial independence of Fréttablaðið in his favour. Shortly after this, Magnús and Þórður left 365 and founded Kjarninn. More information...
