Who am I?
My name is Sim-O, although I may appear in some cases as therealsim_o due to username character restrictions on some sites, I try to use openID when I can.
I live near Oxford and I write at my self-titled blog. I have been blogging since the beginning of 2006.
What will I be writing about?
I will be keeping an eye out for mentions of The Sun in the media, highlighting instances of deception, dishonesty or other cases 'wrong-doing' of the paper itself rather than in the stories they write.
Why am I doing this?
Thanx to reading the words of people like Bloggerheads, Obsolete, 5 Chinese Crackers and The Enemies of Reason, to name a few, I realise that there is more to the papers than just 'a view'. They are insidious things if they get too powerful. And the fact that The Sun, and its' foreign owner, was going to put up a candidate for parliament (who was going to do as The Sun wanted) so blatantly shows how much Rupert Murdoch thinks he can and wants to influence British politics.
Rupert Murdochs' influence is not a good one from where I stand.
As a very minor league blogger I am honoured to have been invited to contribute to this effort.
