Sun deletes tweet criticising Channel 4 News coverage of Nice truck attack
The Sun has deleted a tweet promoting a controversial column attacking Channel 4 News for using a Muslim presenter to report news of the Nice truck attack.
Kelvin MacKenzie's column, which ran with the headline "Why did Channel 4 have a presenter in a hijab fronting coverage of Muslim terror in Nice?", appeared in Monday's edition of the paper.
In it MacKenzie criticises Channel 4 News for using Fatima Manji, who wears a hijab, to front its coverage of the Nice truck attack on Friday night.
MacKenzie argued that Channel 4 would not have used an "Orthodox Jew to cover the Israeli-Palestine conflict" so it should not have used Manji to cover the Nice attack.
