A REGULAR Sun reader suspects the newspaper is using subliminal messages to try and influence his political views.
Wayne Hayes, from Stevenage, has found himself voicing political views he never knew he held and believes the paper could be to blame.
He said: “Whatever they’re doing, it’s subtle. I almost didn’t catch it.
“Maybe it’s an acrostic, where the initial letter of every word spells out a message about Ed Miliband’s inexperience with the economy.
“Or perhaps they’re embedding text somewhere in the pictures, so my subconscious mind suddenly starts telling me David Cameron is an able, trustworthy leader who’ll make Britain great again.”
Sun journalist Nathan Muir said: “If the newspaper is using subliminal stimuli techniques developed by the CIA’s Black Ops division, I’m as much a victim as anybody.
“I constantly find myself bigging up the Tories as if I was controlled by a sinister foreign tycoon with an unquenchable thirst for money.”
Meanwhile, Bill McKay, a Sun reader from Edinburgh, said: “This morning I’ve suddenly decided to vote SNP. Maybe if you stare at breasts for long enough you become a nationalist. How fascinating.”
