A missed promotional opportunity

The Sun’s been uncharacteristically reticent in its coverage of the Suffolk murder arrest: while describing the arrested man’s internet profile and quoting liberally from it, The Sun neglected to mention that the “social networking site” in question was MySpace.

What, I wonder, would prevent The Sun (prop. R Murdoch) from naming MySpace (prop. R Murdoch)?

I bet he doesn’t even care: he’s (presumably) an intelligent man; he’ll know that the myspace link will be everywhere.

As with all these things, it’s almost certainly a middle-management decision.

I was serious when I said “uncharacteristically” – the Sun rarely misses an opportunity to plug Fox things, no matter what the context – serial killer gives interview to Sky News, hurrah, that sort of thing.
