Analysis Of a Tabloid Newspaper.

Extracts from this document...


Analysis Of a Tabloid Newspaper The Daily Mail A tabloid newspaper is in the shape of a tablet and is approximately 30cmX37cm. The newspaper I have chosen to study is The Mail. This newspaper was brought out on January 26th 2003 and is priced at �1.10. On the date of January 26th 2003, the main headline on the mail was Arrested in the Cockpit. The first time I looked at this newspaper, the part which catches my eye is the special offer, A week in the Sun, as it is in bold, bright colours with a coloured background and is at the top. The news item, which catches my attention first, is Arrested in the Cockpit. This takes up a large space of the front cover of the tabloid and is in bold. It is also the only news story on the front except the photograph and a caption, which are related to a different news item. ...read more.


There is also a photo and a caption about a different story inside the paper. Looking at the content of the page, you can see that the newspaper is reflecting the views of the police. You can see this because of the language used in the paragraph and the headline. Police drag drunken BA pilot from Controls Of Airliner The words Drag drunken pilot shows that the pilot was defiantly in the wrong and the police were the good people. The caption, which is with the picture shows that the newspaper feel sorry for the father as it uses the words awesome superb dad. This shows they are using some emotive language to get people to feel sorry for the family. The language used isn't very formal as it is meant to be read by the wide variety of people whereas Broadsheet newspapers such as the Financial Times is very formal as it is only read by certain people who are often formal themselves. ...read more.


My Newspaper Design The newspaper I am going to create will be The Mail as this is the newspaper tabloid, which I researched and analysed. Nearly half the page will be an advert for cheap holidays, which will be in bright, bold colours, so this attracts people to the newspaper. My story will be on the documentary of Michael Jackson, but will be aimed against the TV programme, and for Michael Jackson. My headline will be one word Betrayed in capital letters and bold, so it stands out. I think this word is quite powerful on its own. I will have a close up photograph of Michael Jackson's face and a quote next to it, spoken by Michael Jackson. I will also have a paragraph next to it, which will be the beginning of the story, which is carried on further in the newspaper. The front cover is then finished off with some lines, which separate the stories, and the newspaper and make it look more professional. ...read more.
