Sunday in Modern Life


Every day in our news pages, The Sun presents many forms of coverage: breaking news, investigations, narrative and analysis. These articles rely on the reporting of verifiable facts. They are different in tone and approach from content that appears on The Sun's editorial and opinion pages, which advocate the institutional viewpoint of the paper and provide forums for points of view. The news sections and the editorial pages share the goals of accuracy and fairness. However, the news and editorial departments do not coordinate coverage of events, and each maintains its own distinct and separate staffs and management.
