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.

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."
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 I don't read the Sun and I agree that it's outdated, but the world is such a sanitised, politically correct place these days that a little bit of cheeky offensiveness doesn't do any harm.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.

How is a smiling naked young woman with nice tits on page 3 offensive?

The whole page 3 thing is a little strange in right wing rags. Surely such hedonism is a liberal thing.

Looks like an opening for our Tabloid press Independent media, if the above happens. The Sindo has the usual tabloid crap why not a page 3??

Why would anyone want to put young women out of a job, and during a recession?

About ten years ago they used to have quite a few topless shots in the Sindo. Anyone remember the 03 Girls?

I believe they have boobs on the internets now...

I think it fits the culture of those who read the sun. Page 3 would be out of place in the FT, just like hard hitting journalism would be out of place in the sun. Horses for courses.
