Advantages: An 'entertaining' read!
Disadvantages: Un-trustworthy source!
The Sun is the number one selling newspaper in the UK, although why this is the case I do not know! Even though The Sun seems to have become part of everyday life in the UK, I think the newspaper should be closed down as it produces nothing readable and the news reports are untrustworthy to say the least.
This paper can be bought for only 20p but I would never even spend that amount on it. The only times I have actually read The Sun is when it has been available for FREE and there is nothing else available My main issue with the paper is the fact they seem to enjoy other peoples downfall and they seem to be more interested in creating stories rather than reporting on them. The reporters are always looking for their next celebrity 'victim' and seem to revel in reporting on their misery!
Along with their sister paper The News of the World (available on Sundays), The Sun has had more 'exclusive' reports than any other paper. However nearly all of these exclusives are entertainment related like the report on John Terry's affair or Alex Reid and Dane Bowers having a bust up! Apart from criticising the government they do not seem to be interested in politics or other information based news!
In my opinion this paper is more like a magazine than a newspaper. Even though it does report on the world's current events, it seems to have more and more entertainment news every time I read it. Even though it is obvious a lot of people are interested in this kind of news, I am not and so always walk past The Sun when looking for paper to read. Probably the only redeeming feature of The Sun is the sport section which is always up to date with loads of information but this also seems to be getting drenched in the sportsmen and women's privates lives too! And who can forget Dear Deride and her wonderful photo case book and readers letters!!
I don't think papers like these really serve much of purpose in terms of debate and certainly do not provoke any thought. The paper is merely ten minutes of entertainment if you are extermely bored but do not expect to find any useful in this paper!
