The Sun use Tito Vilanova’s cancer to create a Cesc Fabregas to Manchester United story
It clearly isn’t the most shameful thing that the Sun newspaper has ever done, but their take on the news that Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova has been forced to resign after a relapse in his battle with cancer is still pretty hideous.
Rather than showing their support for a man clearly facing a battle for his life, the Sun chose to run the story as ‘Manchester United move for Cesc Fabregas looks more likely’.
More shameful still was their description of Vilanova’s situation. Is it really acceptable to use the caption ‘Tata Tito’ underneath their image? Or to use the ‘pun’ Villan-over? This is a man battling cancer for f*cks sake.
