Again,Sun Inconsistent

The January 3 edition of The Sun News published an essay – they
call it a report,another blunder – in which the essayist took a
puritan look at pornography, homosexuality, and other erotic
vices in Lagos.

The report was more of a preachment scripted by a well catechized catholic,but poorly attributed to Cardinal Anthony Olubunmi Okogie of the Catholic Church in Lagos.

It feels like The Sun newshounds have no clear editorial policies. Any stuff goes.Or there are editorial policies nobody cares about when writing. So the Naija Sun house is divided.

Obscenity
Both online and offline, this tabloid splashes titillating pictures of oily thighs and breasts of scantily clothed, ambitious girls on their Sun Girl page.
Now you’re already debating what constitutes pornography, obscenity and related legal knots in journalism. Ditch it.
That’s no point now.
Those Sun girls , man ,are out for business.Their ambition is made of stuff sterner than Jessica Simpson’s and Kadnarsha’s. You know those Esquire cover girls that bare all at ease?
This Sun girl page not only sells the newspaper to those randy voyeurs as a fetish, it also skillfully promotes what that parochial essay writer was castigating.

Again , dive into The Sun archive. You sure come up with a particular column – Intimate. It’s written by Juliana Francis , a devil-may-care gutter pressman. She spills out her smutty heart in so daring a way you’d have to convince yourself you’re
reading The Sun and not Scarlet or Hint.
Whatever inspired them now to throw the first stone?

No Principles
I suppose The Sun needs some washed-up pen-pushers to school its editorial staff in ethical journalism. Its raw journalists haven’t realized their muses are subject to their own – or their paymaster’s – ideals and views which they must strive to project coherently; they just scribble any trash and pass it up for publication.
No ideals. No absolutes.No nothing .Uh?
Are they libertarian? Nah.
Libertarians still stand for something – a well defined nothing ,at least.

If transcribing every jabber or prosing every incoherent fib of one’s imagination – as The SUN does – is journalism, then a cute kindergarten brat is a journalist – The Sun type.
Got what ‘am saying?
