Not him either. Clifford, although guilty of many other crimes, was never a newspaper editor.

Correct! A man with virtually no redeeming features, he was editor of The Sun during most of the 1980s, during which it became (still more) faux-patriotic and xenophobic, more right-wing, and even less reliable as a news source, thinking nothing of grossly exaggerating and plain inventing stories. He was the one that dictated the angle of their Hillsborough coverage following the disaster and to this day, the Sun still sells virtually no copies in Liverpool as a result.
