Found these courtesy of greenfairy and bloggerheads. Over the years I have reserved a special place in my own personal 9 circles of hell for the Sun - one of Murdoch's so called newspapers, so it's always good to find people who feel likewise. What the Sun actually is is a propoganda sheet designed to promote News Corporation, its sister organizations and its friends via any means possible - which most commonly involves distracting people's attention with a concotion of xenophobia, class hatred, warmongering, bingo and tits. The fact that people actually pay to be indoctrinated with this hateful spew would make me laugh till I choked if I was Murdoch.

I don't know which is more depressing -

1) that there are so many 'journalists' willing, and indeed fighting tooth and nail, to so grotesquely exploit a section of society that enjoys less educational and financial resources than any other newspaper reading demographic, or
2) that even after all these years people are still happily buying this shit.

Walk down any street in Britain and you can find someone who will genuinely and quite innocently be able to say "Well they wouldn't print it if it wasn't true, would they?"
