Murdoch sees new tabloid off press
Rupert Murdoch was in Hertfordshire to witness the Sun on Sunday tabloid roll off the press for the first time
Rupert Murdoch has personally supervised the final stages of production of his new title The Sun on Sunday.
The media tycoon arrived at printers in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, to witness the new Sunday tabloid roll off the press for the first time.
The front page of the successor to the News of the World features an exclusive interview with Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden, the first after the birth of her daughter, which left her in a critical condition in hospital.
The story is headlined "My Heart Stopped For 40 Seconds", and is accompanied by a picture of Holden cradling her daughter Hollie.
Holden, 40, a mother of two, was in a critical condition for three days after giving birth to Hollie in January.
She told the newspaper she was "moments from death" and describes her ordeal in an interview spread over five pages.
The newspaper, which contains 92 pages and a 28-page football pull-out, also features a topless photo of singer Kelly Rowland on Page 3. But the X Factor judge is covering her modesty.
There is also an editorial on page 12 titled "A new Sun rises today". It reads: "As we launch the seven day Sun, we want to strengthen that connection (with the readers) with a new independent Sun Readers' Champion to accept feedback and correct significant errors.
"Our journalists must abide by the Press Complaints Commission's editors code, the industry standard for ethical behaviour, and the News Corporation standards of business conduct.
"We will hold our journalists to the standards we expect of them. After all a newspaper which holds the powerful to account must do the same with itself. You will be able to trust our journalists to abide by the values of decency as they gather news."
