Introduction

Media Coursework - Compare a broadsheet and tabloid namely Daily Mirror and The Times The two also have different purposes. The Tabloids purpose is to inform and to entertain whereas the broadsheets take a more serious approach, their purpose to inform, as well as to analyse, review and comment, they are both different due to the nature of their audiences. Examples of well-known tabloids are, The Daily Mirror and The Sun. Broadsheet examples are, The Guardian, The Times, The Independent and The Daily Telegraph. When you first look at the front cover of a newspaper the first thing you notice is the masthead at the top of the page. A tabloid would usually be found with a modern white font in contrast to a red background whereas a broadsheet would have bold black font possibly with a signifying coat of arms such as The Times. ...read more.

Middle

The stories are usually based on human interest like a typical tabloid and language is sensational and insinuating. The papers can often be about celebrities and targets audiences with different interests to those of higher class, perhaps because they may be less intelligent or because they haven't enough time in their working day to read a large broadsheet such as The Times. The Mirror is also entertaining, and usually broadsheets don't stress humour and entertainment as tabloids do, due to the audiences targeted at. The Times is a broadsheet newspaper with its main purpose to deliver information to its audience, which are usually people of a higher class.

Conclusion

I would imagine football fans would see Scolari as a failure and would feel animosity towards him as he is in receipt of such a large pay off when they may be struggling to make their benefits cover their entire out goings. There is a right sided anchor alongside the picture of Scolari which cleverly uses alliteration - 'Sacked Scolari's' produces a hissing, spitting effect which appears to draw on the reader's feelings of anger and outrage at Scolari's receiving such a large pay off. Above the right sided anchor is the Chelsea Football Club emblem which would captivate the attention of readers with limited literacy skills alongside the down cast photo of Scolari. This is a cleve manipulation of two pieces of visual stimuli as this would sell a paper to some one who is actually unable to read the main body of text. ...read more.
