The Sun

There are several tabloid newspapers called The Sun. There is also The New York Sun, a broadsheet newspaper, and the Vancouver Sun, a newspaper by CanWest Global Communications[?].

One tabloid is published in the United States. The first death during the 2001 anthrax attack was an editor of this paper who worked at the Boca Raton, Florida offices of American Media, Inc., the owners of this and other tabloids.

The other tabloid is published in the United Kingdom. It is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, The Sun was created out of the Daily Herald in 1964 and sold to Murdoch and made into a tabloid size in 1969. It has a distinguished reputation for a quality of journalism subordinate to the copious quantities of female flesh on display in its pages. Its "Page-3 Girls (http://www.page3.com/)" are famous, but the paper has made efforts to reduce their presence. As of 2002 it is the most circulated English language newspaper in the world, with a circulation of over 3,500,000 copies daily.

There was The Sun News-Pictorial morning tabloid in Melbourne, Australia for many years, until it merged with its afternoon broadsheet sister paper The Herald to form the Herald-Sun. It is similar in scope to the UK Sun.
