Sunburn: The Unofficial History of the Sun Newspaper in 99 Headlines Livres audio Audible – Version intégrale
This book is for you if you dislike The Sun but have never actually read it to know why.
Using his famed on-the-nose commentary, Twitter legend James Felton has dissected 99 of the most outlandish stories The Sun (for a long time the biggest-selling British newspaper) has run since it became a tabloid in 1969, hoping to answer once and for all whether the press has reflected - or manipulated - the British people over the last 50 years.
Included: joke-riddled analyses of The Sun's most infamous stories about celebrities, war, royals, crime, the LGBTQ+ community, migrants, the EU, politics, bacon sandwiches and page three.

99 headlines that sum up the history of The Sun, with James Felton's witty explanations and funny comic style cartoons. From Migrants baking swans to Princess Di, no subject is taboo for the sun, making any old tosh into a story has been their cash cow for many years. Now we can see the best of the worst all in one book!
I've never been a fan of The Sun so this book appealed to me instantly, it confirmed everything I already knew. The Sun put selling papers first and then facts later.
I was incredibly shocked by stories like Aids being a hoax (oh yes, they definitely did) and the "Eastbenders" headline by Piers Morgan...more so than the ones from Katie Hopkins who you just immediately know to brace for some nasty nasty stuff.
This book will require a strong stomach because some of the views The Sun express in here are honestly pretty vile. Reading through your hands (as the book suggests) may be preferable for some...it gets pretty murky in The Sun's history.
James has done fantastic with this book, it's well written and incredibly funny in spite of the nasty bigoted views he has had to write about. I'm impressed how much research he put in and how well he documents everything, even adding in confirmations of the dates facts were checked, proving to people like The Sun that it really isn't that hard to check your facts and provide proof of them...sorry guys but you need to take some pointers here!
If you want an honest look at The Sun newspaper then buy this book, just keep in mind that no matter how insane some of these headlines sound...they are absolutely what The Sun printed!
5 stars, would and have recommended to many people.
I dare you to give Rebekah Brooks a copy.
