British Paper 'The Sun' Halts Page 3 Girls Feature


The Sun Rupert Murdoch

Britain’s top-selling daily newspaper ‘The Sun’ has seemingly dropped one of its distinguishing features – its infamous topless ‘page 3 models’. After 44 years, the feature has been discontinued, apparently in response to changing attitudes and a feminist-led campaign in opposition to it.

On weekdays, the Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid has printed bare-breasted British models on its third page for over four decades, often with incongruous and implausible speech bubbles where the models purport to give their opinions on the hot-button issues of the day. But on Monday (January 19th) the traditional ‘page 3’ wasn’t there, with readers being redirected to The Sun’s website for pictures.

Rupert Murdoch

The children's laureate Malorie Blackman says she will not let "haters" silence her after an inaccurate headline on Sky News led to the author receiving a barrage of racist abuse on Twitter. Blackman, whose novels tackle race and identity, had highlighted the need for more diversity in literature though Sky ran a headline claiming the author said children's books "have too many white faces."

"You want to escape into fiction as well and read about other people, other cultures, other lives, other planets and so on," she had told Sky, "I think there is a very significant message that goes out when you cannot see yourself at all in the books you are reading."

It’s been great to see Elin Nordegren has finally been moving on since her 2010 split with golf pro Tiger Woods. Nordegren has recently been dating coal magnate Chris Cline, although we know that it’s not for his money.

Rupert Murdoch Tony Blair

Wendi Deng Murdoch, the former wife of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, was seemingly infatuated with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. In a love letter obtained by a magazine, Deng Murdoch lusts over Blair's "good body and legs."

The letter was obtained by Vanity Fair and was written by Deng Murdoch to herself, evidently never intended for public circulation. Nevertheless an extract from the letter has been published online and the rest will appear in the upcoming edition of the magazine. The extract reads: "Whatever why I'm so, so missing Tony. Because he is so, so charming and his clothes are so good. He has such good body and he has really, really good legs Butt. And he is slim tall and good skin. Pierce blue eyes which I love. Love his eyes. Also I love his power on the stage. And what else and what else and what else."

A voiceover at the end of the advert suggested the cost for the "unlimited" broadband service was £7.50. This is not the case, as anyone capable of reading the miniscule writing at the bottom of the screen could tell you. The text informed customers that this deal was only available to existing Sky TV customers.
