Controversial Former Sun Editor Kelvin MacKenzie Dropped from The Telegraph: The Nightly EPL

Controversial former Sun editor Kelvin MacKenzie has been dropped from The Telegraph newspaper after only writing one column.

MacKenzie had his column published on Thursday in a role that The Telegraph billed as a regular gig. However, The Telegraph‘s football writer Henry Winter said it was a “one-off and won’t be repeated.”

Kelvin MacKenzie was the editor of The Sun newspaper in 1989 when he authorized the infamous headline entitled “The Truth,” in his paper’s reporting of what happened at Hillsborough. MacKenzie printed false allegations that had labeled the Liverpool supporters as drunken hooligans who prevented police from rescuing fans at the Hillsborough tragedy.
