Well done - now let's wait for the, "they're all as bad as each other" neanderthals to follow your lead...

Cameron is a ****, but the Guardian were totally out of line for publishing that comment.

The issue was with two words. But there is no doubt that it massively rankles me to see that odious c*** 'bigging up' the NHS when he has personally overseen such extensive decimation and inflicted such misery on so many people. What a hypocritical scumbag.

Oh I agree. And the Guardian did retract. But nonetheless it was bad to publish in the first place.

That said, The Sun are a different level of scumbagary altogether.

I thought the tabloid press always did this to allow the individual to 'tell their own story'

Only difference here that I can see is he has come out and said he was blackmailed - guess they didn't pay him/offer him enough £££ to do that and keep schtum on their dodgy ways

They have been trying to give the Sun on Sunday away free at the local garage last few weeks - always amuses me that when they offer it, people refuse. Circulation figures must be abysmal

Technically Milly Dowler was missing at the time her phone was hacked.

They also were hacking the phones of friends and family of Milly Dowler.

Tabloid news coverage of the murder trial of Levi Bellifield also resulted in one charge of an attempted abduction of another school girl, having to be left on file - as the tabloid press had essentially prejudiced the jury by releasing the story prior to conviction, eliminating any possibility of a fair trial.

The media then blamed the Defence Lawyer for causing additional distress to Milly Dowlers family.

The Express is such a s**t rag of a newspaper that i can't imagine who the f**k actually buys or reads it. I get why people might buy The Sun and The Mail, but the Express, makes the Sport look like a quality high brow publication.

I wouldn't wipe my arse with the Express.

I've said this before, but I've never met anyone who reads the Express.

I always thought readers of the Express were people who thought the Daily Mail was just a bit too edgy.

I have alway thought the following was pretty accurate as well as being a classic of British sitcom.

Hacker: Don't tell me about the press. I know exactly who reads the papers. The Daily Mirror is read by people who think they run the country; The Guardian is read by people who think they ought to run the country; The Times is read by the people who actually do run the country; the Daily Mail is read by the wives of the people who run the country; the Financial Times is read by people who own the country; the Morning Star is read by people who think the country ought to be run by another country, and the Daily Telegraph is read by people who think it is.

Sir Humphrey:: Prime Minister, what about the people who read The Sun?

Bernard: Sun readers don't care who runs the country, as long as she's got big tits.

I saw a folded copy recently (just last week) and joked to someone that they'd be talking about Princess Diana on it still. Opened the paper and too left hand corner was a picture of Diana and an article talking about Megan and her.

Those figures are correct but also extremely misleading as they include all visitors to Dream Team, Sun Bingo and Sun Bets as well as The Sun itself.

According to a Sun spokesperson:-

Dream Team, Bingo, Sun Bets – are part of the Sun’s online DNA and part of the entire brand.

According to anyone else it is a cynical attempt to manipulate their figures to make them seem more popular than they are

Anyway now they are not behind a paywall I have been known to pick up the odd football story from there but I would hardly say I am a Sun reader. That 30m covers anyone who has clicked on any of their sites during the month no matter how long they stayed or how many things they looked at.

Do people still class themselves as specific newspaper readers? Surely with the internet, almost everyone is a Sun reader, as the aforementioned figures show. Whether it be via a facebook post, snapchat story, twitter sports feed, normally once a week I will click on a story that will take me to The Sun's website. Wouldn't class myself as a sun reader though.

Also be inclined to say that internet press has a far greater effect on society than printed press - watch Netflix The Great Hack to show how it has been demonstrated in recent years at the highest level.
