More gloom for The Sun

Also casting a shadow over the celebratory polishing of the new brass name plate at News UK: Matthew Knowles is suing The Sun over claims the paper made in an interview it ran with him back in March.

Knowles has issued a statement:

"My daughters and my family mean the world to me. The barrage of repeated falsehoods spawned by the British Sun's defamatory article has been exhausting and personally damaging to me.

"No matter how many papers it sells or web hits it generates, The Sun, like any newspaper, needs to maintain a basic level of journalistic integrity. The Sun crossed the line when it went after my family. The Sun needs to be held responsible for its lies in a court of law. This happens too often to too many people, and it is simply unfair."
Good luck with trying to get the Sun to maintain journalistic integrity, Matthew. Why, James Murdoch was paid to do that, and never managed it.
