- We don reeed the sun in Liverpooooool
I'm sure some people read the Sun in Liverpool, but (and I don't have the city by city circulation figures to hand) I'm guessing it is the city where its circulation is amongst the lowest in England. It all goes back to Hillsborough and the Sun's pretty disgraceful coverage of events. I believe that absolute bottom feeding tosser **** Kelvin McKenzie was in charge at the time.Posted 10 years ago
The thing is and this is why I posted this, is that I work with scousers, some of them liverpool fans, who read the Sun. It just amazes me how these urban myths live on. A couple of the younger lads don't even know the Hillsborough history, which says less about them than about the media I think.Posted 10 years agostonemonkeyMember
Yes some people read it but not many and tends to be people who have come to live in the city be it the woolybacks or wider a field or the younger generation. I have personaly seen the Sun set on fire by a newsagent who cancelled his order following Hillsborough but still had them delivered. Just dont read it in the pubs around anfield, even the bluenoses wont buy it.

I live in North Wales mate and believe me I know the difference between a real and a plastic scouser. Just think it is an urban myth now. I know it was true around the time it happened but not any more especially on the blue side of the city.Posted 10 years agosurferMember
Its not an urban myth. I had a team from the midlands working for me recently and they commented that they couldnt find a copy in the local newsagents.
DD is right. As a scouser myself Liverpool and its people has its faults but the behaviour of the paper during that period was beyond the pale.Posted 10 years agoloddrikMember
Another scouser here, even evertonians would be ashamed to read the sun, it should be spat
on and burned IMO. I reckon newsagents only stock it here as they are contractually obliged to from the distributor. I have never even seen anyone with a copy. Putting aside the hilsborough issue, it is utter shite anyway, not really sure how you class (and I am assuming here) that 15 pages of jordan and posh and becks coverage is in any way classed as news anyway….
Ravey davey, you may work with scousers but you are not one and don't live here, if you did, you would see that the animosity felt toward the sun is as strong as it has ever been.Posted 10 years agosootyandjimMember
The Daily Mirror, The Sun, The Star, they're all not really worthy of calling themselves newspapers. They should just cut out the middleman and send them all straight to the chip shop. They pretend to have political leanings but its all just lip-service and filler inbetween the stories about X-Factor and other non-news. The Daily Mirror plays the politics angle a little harder but it still reads as though the editor is the vice-president of Rotherham Polytechnic student union.Posted 10 years ago
