Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
it could be that the paper is now producing stories

It could indeed. The function of media like The Sun is to produce and maintain narratives that serve the interests of its owners and the class they represent. The relationship of these narratives to reality (aka boring fact-checking or simply avoiding pure fantasy or stage management) is of no importance.

So the only reason the other media would make a song and dance about The Sun faking it would be because their interests as competitors were perceived to be stronger than their categorial interests. We'll see.
