Fox News (here in the U.S.), can we ban Fox News as well?

The sad thing is that the media reflects life and not the other way round. You create a vacuum and it immediately gets filled with something equally bad or, worse, something more sinister.

To be honest, with the weather we've been having the last couple days it looks like the sun has already been banned here.

ah were it that simple. Back in the days of yore (etherial music plays)
the choices of british read sheets were basically the times the telegraph the express witch were read due to your parents political views often.
even the news of the world was nothing like the demon spawn it is today'
when the sun came along they changed the market and shook it up , i hated it , but i admire there business strategy immensely, kind of a mac D's of print
SUN Facts***
1. love it or hate it it is very difficult not to flick though it if laying on a table
2. cheap.
3. Page 3
4. if doing the 2 hours commute the times etc is for you
5. 10 minute s tea break? sun and the star plus do the quizes in 9.5 minutes
6. stories in the headlines dont have to bother reading the story
7. lots of sports pages.
8. page 3. Yes there two of them!! so mention it twice

The problem is people believe the rubbish in this paper... I make a point when ever i see the sun on a friends or managers desk i place it in the bin.... they say they read it for the sport....yeah right...

I agree on it takes an intelligent person less than 10 minutes to read.

Oh its so wrong... I need to start my own dictatorship something like 1984 but worse.... How ever programs like Seinfeld, Curb your Enthusiasm, The Office, these can stay and Frankie Boyle can read the news....

coming from Liverpool, you know what i think of the sun?

Even worse though, it's got to be the daily star

Nuclear war could be about to break out, and you'd be guaranteed front page headlines on the star would be "Jordan leggless in Ibiza" or some other celebrity crap.

remember a while ago when there was a fire in the channel tunnel

The Guardian newspaper (very middle class) had a schematic of the tunnel layout with temperature charts and a heat map plus stats on smoke, damage and the breakdown of the costs of the fire

The sun had a map of southern England and northern France with 2 lines between them representing the tunnel. They had used some clip art to represent fire in the middle of the 2 lines!!!!
