the reader. There are also big titles
related to the images and their
little explanation. The article is not
developed on the front page. Even
though the title takes pretty much
space, it is not a whole sentence,
just a few words to make the
reader wonder what it is about.
The title is a whole sentence which
summarizes the article, when readers
see the sentence; they immediately
know the topic and what happened.
Thus, he needs to know more about it.
The article under the title is quite long.

Audience is part of the reason. Tabloids target a less educated readership but also
deal in sensational stories and sensationality generally. That is supported by more
advertising which takes up space that is irrelevant to sensationalism, but which is
important to papers that report less sensational, more substantial, hard news.
It is aimed at readerships with a high-medium
socioeconomic level, as it offers news about
culture, politics, education (…) related to
present or recent events. It also shows a

aimed at middle and lower social
classes, with a clearly preference for
shocking and polemic articles like
interviews with today’s famous people
like Lady Gaga, social scandals and
often murders. It also features humor
sections and columns about different
issues (sexual advice, economic
counseling and others).
This newspaper is known by
supporting the Labour Party and using

In contradistinction with The Telegraph, Daily Mirror shows a simple and
sensationalist style, matching with stunning images of celebrities on bikini shots,

•Evaluation and comparison everywhere,
Comparing both Daily Mirror and The Telegraph we can
see a clear difference between them related to the
distribution of news.
The Telegraph distributes the different kind of news in a precise way and at
the top it has a small square which shows what kind of news you will find in
that page, so when you are reading, you know what those news are about.
On the other hand, Daily Mirror does not divide it clearly and you just know

Daily Mirror, as a tabloid newspaper, is interested in scandals. Nevertheless,
The Telegraph is a Quality Paper interested in more serious topics.
