Agreed about The Sun, c'mon it's a tabloid, more interested in what anorexic micro celeb is not wearing kinckers.
But the papers in general are crap, context free, pushing an agenda, only wanting 'shock horror' stories.
The Telegraph's defence reporting is widely seen as a joke, despite being a military historian, Max Hastings almost weekly makes an idiot of himself in print, with his obsession about the Typhoon, 'only capable of shooting down Soviet bombers' was a recent one from him.

But it seems that tabloids are not interested in the raw facts like you just posted, would any of them actually understand them at all, or in context?
