And the next editor of The Sun is?

With scoop after scoop it's not much of an industry secret that people think the next editor of The Sun will be News of the World editor Andy Coulson.

It's only February and already he has wracked up England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson in the fake sheik scandal that led to the coach losing out on £7m (not to mention selling 200,000 additional copies of the News of the World). This week Coulson struck again, with an Iraqi abuse scandal involving the British Army that has been picked up around the world.

  Luckily for Coulson this one is the real thing. Members of the unit concerned have already been identified. This story was obviously well checked for its authenticity before it went to press.

Piers Morgan, the former editor of the Daily Mirror who lost his job over fake Iraqi abuse pictures, must be kicking himself.

The only question that remains to be answered now is how long can Rebekah Wade, The Sun's current editor, whose star is said to have waned over the last year, hang on? Posted by Picasa
