From top: English, Scottish and Irish editions of today’s Sun.
Its [Scottish Sun] only front page reference to the story was a blurb, linking to pages 10 and 11. And its editorial read differently, and was much shorter, than the one published in the main edition.
At least, the editor of the Irish edition didn’t make that particular mistake. Instead, it came up with one of its own by not running the editorial of regret published in the London edition.
It buried the apology by its overall editor, Dominic Mohan, way down its inside news story. That also failed to show the right spirit. After all, there are strong familial bonds between Liverpool and Dublin, and across Ireland.
