“What’s a vampire’s least favorite newspaper(s)?”/“The Sun and The Mirror.”

Both London and New York City either have or had newspapers called The Mirror and The Sun. A joke was posted on Twitter by Sickipedia_Feed‏ on March 24, 2012:
 
“Whats a Vampires least favourite newspapers? The Sun and the Mirror!”
 
“Why did the vampire subscribe to the Wall Street Journal?”/“He heard it had great circulation” is a related vampire riddle.

Vampires are choosy about their newspapers, they won’t look at The Sun, Can’t look in the mirror but they love to consume a Daily Mail!
