Newest Review: ... one such columnist, who's column is very funny but not for the easily offended! The Sun regularly has money off vouchers, often worth more... more
Not for everyone but I like it!

Advantages: Only 20p and is an easy way to catch up on the news.
Disadvantages: Not everybodys cup of tea.
The Sun is the most popular tabloid newspaper in this country and I must confess I am one of its many readers, apparantly millions of people buy this newspaper every day. I know I will get criticised for reading this paper and I am not unintelligent, I just find it a nice easy read where I can catch up with the latest news.
I recently went for an interview for a university course and the interviewer asked me what paper I read and I told her The Sun, you should have seen the look on her face, she was totally shocked. I think her words were 'you can't call that a newspaper' and she told me never to tell anyone again I read The Sun.
Many people will probably agree with her but surely if the paper is reporting the news then it is a newspaper. I know it might be more pictures and less words than the broadsheets but sometimes you don't want to sit and read for hours on end. You simply want to flick through the paper and see the headline news of the day. I always like to know whats happening and don't like if I don't get the chance to watch the news or read the paper.
The Sun newspaper is probably most famous for Page Three but there is more to this paper. The back of the paper is full of the sports news and on certain days there are sports pullouts, great if you're a footie fan. Every day there is a TV Biz section, which is four pages of the latest TV gossip, what the programs and its stars are up to.
I must admit a lot of the paper does follow celebrities and what they have been up to but I think this is the same in most tabloid papers. I am interested in celebrities which is probably one of the reasons why I like this paper.
A lot of the broadsheets feature heavily on politics and if you are a fan of politics then The Sun is not the paper for you as unless there is a big political story then the political news can all be found on page 2 of the paper (next to the half naked lady).
There are regular columnists who feature on certain days and I like to read these, Jon Gaunt, Lorraine Kelly, Jeremy Clarkson, Jane Moore and others I have probably forgotten. Dear Deidre is also a daily feature not to be forgotten.
I do realise that The Sun is not a paper for everyone but at just 20p it is certainly worth buying to see whats been happening in the news. I like this easy read paper which has a more light hearted approach to the news and somebody out there must agree because it sells so many papers.
Summary: Don't judge a person by the paper they read!
