When you can get tits and football on your phone at tea break, the Sun’s appeal was bound to wane compared to the Mail’s older demographic.
Its latest accounts show that The Sun and its Sunday sister paper now have “zero carrying value” after an £84 million writedown, the FT reported. It said that turnover had dropped by a fifth during the pandemic and £80 million of legal costs from a long-running phone-hacking scandal helped the papers to a pre-tax loss of £201 million ($284 million.)

IIRC, they always ran at a loss (with advertising space attempting to minimise that) because it was considered "the cost of doing business" i.e. exerting enormous power and influence over public opinion.

And keeping politicians on a tight leash, assured and in the knowledge that they could be splashed to 11m readers by breakfast-time tomorrow.
