The Sun ignores Brooks's previous job. . .as editor of the Sun

The <em>Sun</em> describes Rebekah Brooks only as a "former <em>News of the World</em> editor" in it

The Sun has managed to find some space in today's newspaper to report on the Milly Dowler allegations, after practically ignoring the story yesterday. It begins the article boldly:

FORMER News of the World Editor Rebekah Brooks yesterday said she was "sickened" by allegations that a private eye hired by the paper hacked tragic Milly Dowler's phone.

The story neglects to mention that Brooks used to edit another national newspaper too. That newspaper's name? The Sun! Strapped for space, the poor subs at the Sun obviously couldn't fit this extraneous detail in.

The super, soar-away Sun!
