Thanks interested.
Wow, I'll have to reconsider my views on Katie Hopkins...

The Sun is owned by Rupert Murdoch, a staunch ally of Tony Blair leader of New Labour and alleged lover of Murdoch's ex wife (Wendi Deng) who announced in 2005 that Tony Blair is godfather to Rupert Murdoch's nine-year-old daughter.

There can be no great surprise when a red top daily rag refuses to allow adverse press or potentially damaging editorials to be printed about a close, family friend, especially if this friend is PM of a once upright, honest, Democratic Political party.

Mail Online columnist Katie Hopkins says Sun banned her from writing about Madeleine McCann

By Dominic Ponsford Twitter

Mail Online columnist Katie Hopkins has claimed she was banned from writing about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann when she had a column in The Sun newspaper.

And she has praised the Mail for being “brave” enough to let her tackle difficult subjects.

Speaking on the latest Media Focus podcast she talked about the February 2016 Mail Online column in which she said Madeleine’s parents were partly to blame for her disappearance.

On being one of Mail Online’s two paid columnists, along with Piers Morgan, she said: “The audience we pull on some of the stuff we write is off the scale." They are brave.

“The Madeleine McCann article I wrote, nobody would touch that. In other papers I’ve worked for I was never allowed to write about 'that' topic."

“The Mail will back you and they will provide the legal support that will allow you that freedom. Everyone else is terrified of compliance, terrified of legal costs and terrified of their own shadow."

“I articulate views that a lot of people feel but feel they can no longer say.”

Hopkin left The Sun for Mail Online in September 2015.
