Is Rupert Murdoch considering dropping page three topless pics?

News Corp chief executive Rupert Murdoch is reportedly considering scrapping The Sun's page three topless photo.

According to reports, including The Guardian, Twitter user @Kazipooh tweeted to the News Corp boss: “#nomorepage3 Seriously, we are all so over page three – it is so last century!” to which Murdoch replied: “page three so last century! You maybe right, don't know but considering. Perhaps halfway house with glamorous fashionistas".

His comment comes amid an ongoing campaign to end The Sun's long-standing practice of picturing a topless model on page three.

The ‘Take The Bare Boobs Out Of The Sun' petition has so far been signed more than 64,000 times.  

In response to Murdoch's intervention the No More Page 3 group tweeted: “We're really pleased that @rupertmurdoch might b thinking about dropping pg 3 – It's down to everyone who signed the petition & supported us.”
