Interesting Record: Sun, The

“Among other and as violent Tory evening papers, The Sun had during many years an evil reputation. It was started in 1792 by George Rose and others at the instigation of Pitt, especially to advocate their views on home and foreign policy. It was at first conducted with some spirit, carrying on a fierce rivalry with The True Sun, another Tory print. Before long, however, the kindest thing that could be said about it was that The Sun appears daily, but never shines” (Fox, English Newspapers, p.288).
