Introduction

Newspaper Comparisons There are many different types of newspapers printed in this country. They are aimed at different audiences, class groups, geographical areas and even ethnic groups. I am going to investigate and compare a few of these newspapers, showing the differences between them. The newspapers I am going to look at are The Daily Mail, The Mail On Sunday, The East Kent Gazette and The Kent Messenger Extra. The Daily Mail The daily mail is a unique middle class newspaper. It neither falls into the category of tabloid or broadsheet, but it contains factual events in a non-sensationalized manner. It contains some pages of gossip and entertainment news, but it has mostly political and topical news of the day. The Mail On Sunday Although this newspaper does have some political content and up to the minute news, it is more concerned with a round up of the week's news and leisure and entertainment. It contains two magazines within the paper and has a comprehensive financial review. It is much heavier and thicker newspaper than the daily paper that is produced during the week. ...read more.

Middle

4.5 60p �1.10 40p Free This table shows that the KM Extra has the most pictures per page so that means that it is cheaper to produce pictures than text, and the KM Extra has more information than text because its funding is from its adverts so it would have a lot, and it would have the most picture per page because it has the least pages. Comparing colour pictures to black and white: - The amount of colour pictures compared to the black and white means the more black and white there are the smaller the funding the paper has and probable less important newspapers have more black and white ones than colour. 3. Text In this section I am going to look at 1) size of text 2) amount of words on a page 3) an approximant amount of text in the whole paper. Size of text The average size of the text in the KM Extra is about point size 8, that is, I think, so they can get more adverts on the page and the same amount of text on but it is just a little bit smaller. ...read more.

Conclusion

6. Estate Agents In most newspapers, they have in the middle, a section from the local estate agents, in the KM Extra, There is usually more than the other papers because it is a platform for local traders and estate agents. Newspaper Estate Agent Section Amount of pages Daily mail Sunday mail Gazette Km extra No No Yes Yes 0 0 12 4 The table above shows that, in the free and local papers they have estate agents adverts in them. One reason is because they are local and the estate agents need a cheap and local way of advertising, and the newspapers need funding from wherever they can. So it can be seen that newspapers are made up of many different items, not just news. As it can be seen in the very first table, the paper that initially appeared the best value for money is not always true. Readers will buy a specific newspaper according to what information they wish to obtain. Steven Kite 10G 10SOC ...read more.
