Online newspaper the cheaper way of saving a few pennies and I admit I am one of these people. If you do prefer to buy your papers The Sun is 30p in all good newsagents!
I use to buy The Sun everyday but as the papers stacked up and me being too lazy to get rid. It dawned on me that I could save space and read virtually… So from that day forth that’s what I did.
So The Sun – it’s a national UK newspaper covering many subjects and an easy to navigate website of which I’m going to tell you about in this review.
NEWS - Useless Fact actually stands for North East West South.News we all know what that is and if it were not for the many media forms we’d have no idea what was going on in the world. The below are recent Headlines In The Sun News Section
Protesters climbing Big Ben
Beyonces riding a horse hmmmm major headline that one! lol
SPORT – No useless facts I’m afraid…Sport covers football, rugby, cricket well you name it I’m sure at some time The Sun has reported on it.The website ‘The Sun Online’ gives you the chance to take part in Dream Teams, it gives you the latest Sport news. Below are a few examples.
Rio Ferdinand’s eight-month ban.
Leeds saved by a 30 million pound take over.
BIZARRE Bizarrely I like this page, it keeps me up to date with the latest celeb gossip some of the current juicy gossip features are:
Robbie Williams celebrating 30th Birthday lasting 5 Days…
Courtney Love Squashing girl at gig.
LIFE This page is probably more aimed at us females out there with such topics as:
Top 10 tips
Horoscopes (daily and monthly)
Traffic and travel news. (Okay so men might be interested in a few things, I take back what I said).
GIZMO’S Another section of the paper I really like. Giving you up to date info on some of the latest Gadgets and sometimes some very odd inventions.Current items on this page are:
Walkie Talkie Watches!
A groovy Cd player
A USB Stick
PAGE 3 To do this review it’s the first time I’ve clicked on this page I’m going to try my best to describe this page but for obvious reasons.
This page is actually PAGE3.com, for those who don’t know Page 3 in the Sun Newspaper is very well known for probably most males favorite page because there are girls pictured with very little on in the way of clothing lol!!
The page subtitles for PAGE3.com are as follows:
*ARCHIVE – Shows all pictures that have appeared on PAGE 3. It goes back in years a huge archive.
*GALLERY- More PAGE 3 Girls
*GOLD – More Girl’s from a golden era
*PAGE3TV – You can watch official Page3 photo shoot footage (at a cost).
*SHOP – Selling - Calendars, playing cards, Posters etc…
COMPETITIONS The Sun can afford to run some real decent competitions and so they do, imagine the amount of people that enter these though I can not see the chances of winning very high but then again you never know some of the prizes up for grabs at the moment are:
42” Plasma TV and home cinema system. *The Unsaid DVD.
Trip to Las Vegas
Space Age goodies
M*A*S*H Box set + Wide screen TV & DVD Player.
An example of a Competition question “Where is this years Divas taking place?” The answer to this could win you a trip to Las Vegas.

For some people The Sun will always be better to read away from the computer for others virtually is just fine as the website is extremely easy to navigate round with its simple and clear layout. Were all different and so therefore preferences will range from person to person.It’s also best to keep in mind that for collecting tokens for holidays or such like buying the Newspaper is the only option. Also someone informed me that The Sun (Paper form) differs slightly depending where in the country you maybe and has little bits of local news (usually daft stuff) but this maybe why you buy The Sun.
Finally The Sun does have a reputation for reporting on News & Gossip, which is false. I could not personally comment on this but it should be known The Sun is a fun paper not just full of doom and gloom. It might not be everybody’s choice but its mine.
I've never had a look at the website before, but I do enjoy their newspapers - I think that it's got a good balance. Other newspapers use such high vocabulary that the articles actually have quite limited information. Good review.

I quite like online newspapers. I very rarely watch the news on the telly so it' good to dip into these sites every now and then.
