Brexit-backing Sun and Mail seen as having the most negative impact on society

Brexit-backing national newspapers The Sun and The Mail are seen to be having the most negative impact on society, according to a new poll.

Rupert Murdoch’s red top rag was ranked as having a negative impact on society by half of people who participated in the survey compared to just five per cent who said it has a positive influence.

The Daily Mail, run by Paul Dacre, ranked in close second with just ten per cent saying it has had a positive influence.

Remain-supporting newspapers The Times and The Guardian were seen to have the most positive impact on society, with 27 per cent saying the former title has had a positive influence and 28 per cent saying the same for the latter.

But despite popular perceptions of the print media The Sun and The Mail remain the most read daily papers, with The Sun’s circulation hovering around 1.7 million and the Mail around 1.5 million.

Despite having a perceived positive influence on society The Guardian sells just 156k copies on average a day.
