The Guardian is giddy with excitement today with news that Rupert Murdoch has hinted on twitter that Page 3 might be dated and could be brought to an end.
Personally I'd be sad to see it go. I don't read the Sun and I agree that it's outdated, but the world is such a sanitised, politically correct place these days that a little bit of cheeky offensiveness doesn't do any harm. There seems to be an army of humourless feminists on twitter who take it upon themselves to hound any organisation or person that they consider to be unacceptable.Responding to a fellow user of Twitter who described Page 3 as "so last century", News Corp's chairman and chief executive said that he was "considering" whether he was of the same view.
Murdoch, whose tweets are closely scrutinised for clues to the future direction of his global media empire, commented: "page three so last century! You maybe right, don't know but considering. Perhaps halfway house with glamorous fashionistas."
