I used to buy the Sun every weekend, however since September 11 2001, I have bought the Daily Mirror every day. I find that the Mirror has more 'news' though it should improve its business section which is lacking.
The Sun is full of gossip and rarely full up with news. When there is news, I find the journalism of a lower calibre than the Daily Mirror or the broadsheets.

Don´t the Daily Telegraph praise themselves as "the most widely read quality newspaper"? A few years ago, I read the Telegraph for about 10 months, daily. I have to say, this newspaper is very anti-European in general, anti-German in particular. Sometimes I thought the bias and prejudice they showed was on a par with the Sun´s.

Yes, the Telegraph is the biggest selling broadsheet. I don't think you are right in saying that it is anti-European or anti-German though. However, it is extremely anti-EU, which is not the same thing.

Whenever I visit the UK, I buy The Sun. Not for "quality" reasons, but simply because I think it's fun to read - i.e. because it's fun to "look at the pictures", Lapper is right on this one.
I visit the UK about twice every year, usually London. However last year when visited Glasgow I was surprised to see a special "The Scottish Sun" edition. And when in Ireland (Republic) I was even more surprised to the "The Irish sun". What's the difference between those papers? Is there sort of England-bashing in the Scottish and Irish version?

Well the Scottish Sun is, or was, pro-SNP! Murdoch's cynicism knows no bounds.
Happily, the Sun's circulation is in long-term decline.
But I dislike the Mail a lot more, nastier, hypocritical, pretends it's some kind of quality paper when it's as full as the same bollocks as the Sun, dressed up to look respectable.
