#26 The Sun, reported on R4

BBC Radio 4's Today programme promoted the newspaper slot to
the headlines when reporting that the Scottish Sun is supporting Sturgeon and the SNP, while the [rest of the UK] Sun is supporting the Tories.
The BBC's Scotland correspondent, Colin Blane reported at both 7o'c and 8o'c that the Southern Sun states "the Tories are the best bet for millions of ordinary people".
For the first time in my life, I bought a copy of the Sun today and the beginning and end of the piece are shown right.
Colin Blane is, I guess, innocent as a mere mouthpiece and will therefore be postcard-less, but he could have distanced himself by inserting a 'so-called'. Maybe a postcard to the editor [sent 2nd May].
