Media Coursework Compare the presentation of the same story in two different newspapers. In a broadsheet and a tabloid. The two newspapers that have been compared are The Daily Telegraph and the Daily Express from November 19th on the subject of student tuition fees. Each paper saw different levels of importantce on this subject. The Daily Telegraph printed their story on the front page with a bold title/headline at the top left of the page entitled "All students should pay tuition fees". Where as the Daily Express has their story a few pages in on a double page spread entitled "They didn't pay, so why should we" spanning across the two pages, appealing to the emotions of the reader.

of 11.5. The Daily Express however has a Flesch-Kincaid grade level of 9.5 Each newspaper had its own opinion on the subject of tuition fees. The Daily Express appeared to be against tuition top-up fees. This was shown in the headline of the article "They didn't pay, so why should we". The Daily Express used a lot of persuasive language to try and hinder any opinion the reader had in the first place to their opinion of the subject. The Daily Telegraph appeared to be for tuition fee top-ups. This was shown in their headline "All students should pay tuition fees" which to me seems like they are for tuition fee top-ups. This paper as well used persuasive language to try and hinder any previous opinions or thoughts the reader already had on the subject. Ben Watts 05/02/07 English GCSE ...read more.
