Middle

The Echo's pictures are smallerand both relevent. The picture of the two Liverpool comdeians laughing is a good picture because the article is about Liverpool people being the friendliest. When the readers see the pictures, they should get an idea if what the story is about. The images are important because they attract the readers, so newspapers must make theirs bold and colurful, with a caption explaining the picture. The Echo's main story- "Britain's Warmest Welcome- You are the friendliest people in the UK" "Liverpool is the friendliest city in Britain. Readers of a top worldwide travel magazine overwhelmingly hailed Liverpudlians as the cheeriest people in the UK. The city was given the Conde Nast Traveller magazine award at a ceremony in London last night. Today council leader Mike Storey said the honour was a real achievement for all Liverpudlians. The story continues by saying that its something for the people of Liverpool t be proud of. The spokeswoman of the magazine said the award was very well deserved. Famous people commented on how they found Liverpool people friendly and the city's people were congratulated. One of the main stories on The Times is called "Heads ready to replace A levels with new exam." "Head Teachers are preparing to introduce a British baccalaureate in place of the A level, because of collapsing confidence in the "gold standard examination." The story goes on by telling us how they are preparing to introduce the new exam, what it will involve and comments from head teachers on what they think about it. ...read more.

Conclusion

The Times is a broadsheet paper. It is printed all over the country, and prints news about the country and world. It includes a variety of adverts, and entertainment. This paper is for older readers, who like to hear about worldwide news etc. The paper also includes stocks and bank news, so it is meant for older readers. The Echo is a tabloid newspaper, its includes more gossip about the stars and local news about Merseyside etc. It includes some entertainment pages and adverts. The paper is best for younger readers, and people who like to here about news in their area. I think that The Times would be a good newspaper if you like to here about worldwide issues and look at stocks and shares, that's why it's meant for older readers. I would read it for the worldwide news, but I would personally read The Echo, as it has more articles that I'd like to read etc. I think the Echo is more colourful and attractive than The Times, as it has more pictures, colours and bold writing, and the Times can be quiet boring to look at. The Times has better adverts than The Echo, as they advertise shops and products all over the country, which The Echo doesn't do. I think they're both good newspapers depending what type of news you like to view, and what you're in to, but I would personally pick The Echo, as I am younger and like hearing news about the stars and entertainment in my area. Newspapers are made to suit each type of audience, and The Echo and Times both do this well. ...read more.
