Rupert Murdoch and his UK tabloids, The Sun and The News Of The World are currently waging a war campaign against Manchester City Football Club, but why?

Examples

I Hate Being A Footballer – written and published by Aidan Magee believes Carlos Tevez is seriously thinking about walking away from football forever. Oh really? Story described by VMC is negative.

Joe Hart Goes On A Bender – another example of trying to sell a story when 5 million plus of us go on a bender every weekend. Story described by VMC is negative.

Mancini Launches A Four Letter Rant At Tevez – Neil Curtis and Shaun Custis report that City boss Mancini was heard screaming: ‘Go **** your mother’ before ordering the striker to shut up because he was the boss. The row erupted at half-time during City’s 2-1 win at Eastlands. Story described by VMC is negative.

I could go on but to be honest I think I may have made my point.

I appreciate the tabloids have to sell newspapers but why, especially are the Sun and the NOTW going to press with what appears to be total negativity against MCFC?

On the other hand I’m sure their respective sports editors could turn this story on its head and say they’re trying to produce fair and balanced stories, however, I sometimes wonder.

I also hear the club are considering revoking press passes to anyone associated with News International. Perhaps someone could clarify this.

Vital Manchester City would like to hear from fellow Blues. Is it just me who thinks the aforementioned papers have it in for MCFC?

If you think we Citizens should boycott The Sun and the News of the World then all I ask is that you leave the comment, ‘boycott’ in the comments section directly below this article.
