Description

The Sun is a British tabloid newspaper owned by News UK, a division of News Corp. Founded in 1964, it is known for its sensationalist and provocative news style, focusing heavily on celebrity gossip, sports, and populist news. It is one of the UK's most widely circulated newspapers, famous for its bold headlines and controversial stances. "The Sun" has historically supported the Conservative Party, though it occasionally endorses other parties based on the working-class interests it typically champions. The paper has been influential in shaping public opinion and political outcomes, although it has also faced criticism for its approach to reporting and ethical lapses, most notably during the phone-hacking scandal.
