Redtops in 'lowlife' dogfight
The Irish Daily Star - a robust red top based in Dublin - certainly has no empathy for its tabloid rival the Irish Sun. The Star's front page hamper about the News of the World closure denounces The Sun as a 'lowlife Brit sister rag.' But I can't help wonder if the Star's indignation about the 'lowlife' Sun would have a touch more credibility if it hadn't led on a woman dying from an allergic reaction after having sex with an alsatian.
