Right editor, best for tabloid? (3-3)
I believe the answer is:
'for tabloid?' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
'right editor best' is the wordplay.
'right' becomes 'r' (common abbreviation).
'editor' becomes 'ed' (abbreviation).
'best' becomes 'top' (top can mean the very best).
(Other definitions for red top that I've seen before include "Publication" , "Liverpool player wears it?" , "Mirror perhaps" , "Star" , "The Sun is said to be" .)
