In an article in the Sunday Business Post on 22nd May there was a fairly belated rant about The Suns use of ‘technology’.
The article maintained that the papers ‘new’ app for the ipad and iphone, which allows users to see their page three models in a 360 view was, well, disgusting (I paraphrase about seven paragraphs there).The article took issue with the app, the whole issue of page three, topless models in general, models and photo ops, the over use of models for ‘no justifiable editorial reason’ etc etc. I’m not going to open the debate of page three as it has been well aired in other platforms. Belated because the app was launched in November 2010.The 360 portion is only a small part of the papers iphone/ipad app as is page three in the print and online edition.
It’s really a stretch to dedicate the whole article to the 360 portion. The article meandered on to criticism of news editors insisting that photo shoots have to use ‘models’ in order to make the grade and get printed. Naturally, TCH (Thomas Crosbie Holdings), the owebers of the Business Post are above all that nonsense and leave it to the tabloid readers to ogle over models in those pages.
