The Sun: Mouthpiece for the military-industrial complex?

October 15, 2011

Since its takeover by the Tribune Corporation, The Sun almost always features some trivial local matter on its front page. But whenever there's a story that might help to move public opinion toward war with Iran, it's dramatically emblazoned at the top of Page One — with the story provided, of course, by Tribune.

That was the case with your story "Iran linked to bomb plot" (Oct. 13). The headline practically screamed the news in inch-high letters.

When I moved here, The Sun still had its own national and foreign news desks, and I was proud of its editorial opposition to the 2003 Iraq war. Now, The Sun is just another propaganda arm of the military-industrial complex.
