Extracts from this document...


The two newspapers I have studied containing the Zidane incident 2006 world cup are "The Sun" and "The Daily Telegraph". On the July 9th 2006 Zidane head butted the Italian player in chest. France lost because of Zidane temper and Italy won the trophy. There are two categories of newspapers: tabloid and broadsheet. Both nnewspapers frequently run the same stories, but their presentation, content and the language used often differ considerably. The main story/ stories appear on front page and continue on a later page. A tabloid paper has features of long headlines, informal language and larger print unlike a broadsheet paper which is longer; more detailed and focused on more political and world news. The Sun which is tabloid newspaper is more for the working class men and The Daily Telegraph which is broadsheet newspaper is written for the Middle class businessmen and women. ...read more.


.The Sun also uses the pictures to add a visual dimension and also uses arrows to simplify the events and to make it trivial. Second page is full with pictures. First four pictures are the same size but the last picture of Zidane's is largest than the others and in this picture Zidane head is down, shows the name on the back of his shirt and walking off the pitch the trophy. The Sun newspaper is often deliberately using an informal registration and a colloquial register- one closer to everyday speech for example "Shame of a legend". Now I am going to talk about how The Daily Telegraph uses layout to report the story. I can see that its headline called "No Buts for Zidane after Madness" to instantly grab the reader's attention. ...read more.


Both papers use current stories as their main headline but the language used is quite different, as The Times is targeting an older, more professional type of person. It does not seek to sensationalize its stories, relying instead on supplying important information on the stories it features. Similarly, the Sun invites its readers to read more about its chosen headline, by saying 'full story: pages 4 and 5'. This is one of the main tactics papers use to persuade people to buy them, rather than just glance at them on a newspaper stand and pass them by. Therefore in conclusion it can be seen that both newspapers have a very different approach to presenting the news both in their choice of stories and also in the way they portray them in order to attract their target audience. ?? ?? ?? ??
