1 Lesson Objective: How to recognise features of a Broadsheet and Tabloid Newspaper

2 Broadsheet Newspapers
Broadsheets – newspapers printed in a large format (pages 37cm x 58cm) Traditionally more serious in content than tabloids. (The Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Straits Times, The Washington Post)

3 Tabloid Newspapers Tabloids – newspapers with pages half as large as broadsheets, usually more highly illustrated and traditionally less serious. (The New Paper,The Sun, The Mirror, The Enquirer, The New York Daily News)

4 The Main Features of a Broadsheet
They have a much higher news content More factual and formally written They usually cost more and have lower circulation figures than the Tabloids The Times is the oldest, founded in 1788 The Daily Telegraph sells the most and as a result charges high prices to its advertisers The Independent is the newest, founded in It generally has more colour photos than the others. The Financial Times is the only national to be printed on pink paper. It deals with mainly business and economic news, although it does have other news, including a sports section.

5 The Main Features of a Tabloid
The Sun, The Mirror and The Daily Star are all called REDTOPS. This is because they have red MASTHEADS A masthead is the title of the newspaper which appears in the large type at the top of the front page

6 Typical Tabloid Stories
They include international news and politics but generally include more gossip and sensationalised stories with hyperbole The stories are written simply and are quite short They tend to have more pictures than other newspapers

7 Middle Market Dailies The Daily Mail and The Daily Express are also Tabloids but are referred to as ‘Middle Market Dailies’ Their readership is somewhere in between the Tabloids and the Broadsheets There is plenty of news and features for people but less gossip and is a bit more serious

8 Target Readership The CONTENT and the LAYOUT of each page will reflect its TARGET READERSHIP This means the ‘typical’ reader targeted by a newspaper’s choice of stories and political viewpoint e.g. In Britain the three parties – Conservative, Labour and Liberals
