The Sun's new editor David Dinsmore gave a refreshingly candid Q&A, in an age where editors are often mocked for not being willing to stick their head above the parapets, at the London Press Club on Tuesday. Over 50 people were in attendance including some journalism students.
You are underestimating your impact David, why? You edit the best selling UK paper. Everything in this paper has a potentially massive reach. The inclusion of sexualised images of women here has a different impact to similar images in other publications.
I'm sure there are lots of ways to sell more newspapers. But a newspaper is supposed to provide "news," not topless women. I am not, like many of the No More Page 3 campaigners, against the models or glamour modeling in general, I'm just against these types of photos appearing in a daily newspaper.
