The History of the Newspaper

Extracts from this document...


The History of the Newspaper There have been newspapers around since the 19th century. Around that time all the papers were aimed at high class people because they were the only people who could afford an education. They only consisted of Standard English without any slang which is quite surprising. These papers were huge one portrait side of a paper was A3 and when the two pages were together then you can imagine a massive paper they were called 'Broadsheet'. In the 20th century more people began to read due to free education so newspapers became more compulsory and had to change to suit everybody's needs. This soon changed and turned into a fight for the readers. Something even more frustrating for newspaper publishers was the release of the television place around the beginning of the 20th century but never really took off until around the middle. This made an even bigger fight for the readers the things that changed were really big, the whole layout, style and context of the papers were changed which gave birth to the tabloid paper. ...read more.

Most of the biased is in adverts because they tell you that it is the best product because they are getting paid for having that advert in their paper. Other times the paper could be biased say the football for example say there was a match against Germany and England because that the paper is an English firm, they know what the reader wants to hear they would say it was a one sided match to England if it was an equal match. Exaggeration The other types of thing that papers use is exaggeration sometimes the paper would say 'the keeper saved the shot from the line with extraordinary speed' when really the goal keeper just scraped the shot of the line. Puns They also use some type of play on words in they're headings like when Frankie Dettorie went to the beach while abroad and went swimming in the sea the used 'Frankie Wettorie' as a pun.
