PROFILE: The Sun is a daily national "red top" tabloid newspaper and the biggest-selling newspaper in the UK. Famous for its "Page 3" girls and catchy banner headlines, it is published by News Group Newspapers of News International, a subsidiary of Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation. While throwing it's considerable mass influence behind Tony Blair's New Labour, politically, the paper's stance was less clear under Prime Minister Gordon Brown with numerous editorials critical of Brown's policies and often more supportive of those of then Conservative leader David Cameron. On election day (6 May 2010), The Sun urged its readers to vote for David Cameron's "modern and positive" Conservatives in order to save Britain from "disaster".
