Rupert Murdoch says the idea is "old fashioned"
Page 3 girls could be replaced by 'beautiful young woman in fashionable clothes' after Rupert Murdoch called his own creation "old-fashioned". The founder of The Sun also opened up a dialogue with his Twitter followers, asking for opinions on the pictures.
Rupert Murdoch could get rid of Page 3
In one tweet, he wrote: "Page 3 again. Aren't beautiful young women more attractive in at least some fashionable clothes? Your opinions please."
Another one said: "Brit feminists bang on forever about page 3. I bet never buy paper. I think old fashioned but readers seem to disagree."
The replies came thick and fast, with one user tweeting, "Of course, you have to leave something to the imagination. Thats what wrong nowadays. Too much off too quickly."

"How about you stop asking for opinions, develop a moral conscience, and then summon the courage to act on it?" read another.
"Nudity is great, in the right context. Your newspaper IS NOT the right context!!" said one user.
Doubtless, the No More 3 campaigners, will be tweeting their opinions after recently attracting 200,000 signatories to their petition which called upon The Sun's editor David Dinsmore to "take the bare boobs out of The Sun."
The newspaper went four days without publishing a Page 3 girl though did so on Tuesday (September 9, 2014), however, not in the Scottish edition.
In other Murdoch Twitter news, the News Corp boss doesn't think Piers Morgan is very talented, anymore.
"Piers Morgan seems unemployed after failing to attract any audience in US. Seemed out of place. Once talented, now safe to ignore," he said. Ouch.
