Magazine Headline and Newspaper Analysis K.Brett

  1. 1. Headlines.Magazines/Newspapers
  2. 2. Large picture behind text that corresponds to the subject. Text to the side of the picture. Close-up picture/ add more detail. Cartoon/ symbol for the thing/person being mentioned. Large/ bold headline usually positioned at the top to underline the subject.
  3. 3. Bold and massive font to draw attention and then a sub-headline underneath. Quotes and a picture that are featured within. Small/start of the article to make readers want to read on inside. Little image that corresponds with the headline. Another headline - usually featured on front page.
  4. 4. There’s a lot more text in a broadsheet. One large image corresponding to one story on the cover page. Small beginnings of articles – more featured on a broadsheet than a tabloid. Newspaper's title featured at the top. Smaller headline than a tabloid – concentrates more on content than it does presentation. Small images to advertise articles inside. Sub-headline.
  5. 5. Title featured at the top – like others. Bold/average sized text. Large/central image that represents the subject mentioned. Sub-heading and beginning of the article. Small image to represent a sub-story. Image aside another sub-heading. Content is more political/economical. Small image either side of headline. Newspaper’s logo.
  6. 6. Short and sharp heading. A quote featured within the text to get the reader interested. Large/full sized image positioned to the side of the article. A bold letter that the article begins with is made to stand out. Bold text in some places to make it stand out. Consistent colours; blue and yellow.
  7. 7. Full page image – draws attention. Whole article on one page. A short headline – impact. A short introduction to the subject. A quote from the person/article. Magazine section strip.
  8. 8. What's the Difference? Broadsheets Vs. Tabloids The first main difference is the size of the paper; broadsheets are smaller now-a-days but they used to be very ‘broad’ hence the name. The subject of discussion is very diverse, tabloid newspapers often stretch the truth and elaborate for dramatic effect – the stories are main based around celebrities. Broadsheets however, are based around politics and the economy which appeals more to people in middle to upper class, whereas redtops intrigue the majority of the working class. The size of the font and the images are effective in each type; a tabloid for example The Sun uses overly large/bold font which fills the majority of the page this makes it more eye-catching and lighter reading. Broadsheets such as The Guardian propose more intense reading and the majority of pages are covered with text – small images are used to correspond with the text, and some large images are used occasionally and usually featured on the front page. The contents of a tabloid are mainly made up of images either appearing to the side of text to catch attention and make the reading more comprehendible. Double page spreads in newspaper magazines vary in content/subject. Images are used in both, but in a magazine targeting a lower-class, the images may be bigger and the page may be more colourful. The subjects are often more bold in a tabloid magazine and more complex in a broadsheet/ middle-upper class magazine.
  9. 9. Headlines HEADLINES ARE USED TO CAPTURE AND SUMMARIZE THE EVENT OF WHICH IS BEING PORTRAYED. THEY ARE USUALLY BOLD, SHARP AND SOMETIMES A PLAY ON WORDS FOR A HUMOUROUS EFFECT (more common in tabloids). BROADHSEET NEWSPAPERS ARE MORE POLITICALLY BASED AND THE HEADLINES DO NOT TEND TO BE HUMOUROUS – THEY ARE LONGER AND MORE INTENSE WHICH MAKES IT HARDER TO GET A SENSE OF A NARRATIVE OR SUBJECT. PUNS, ALLITERATION, WORD PLAY AND HUMOUR WHICH APPEALS TO IT’S READERS AND MAKES READING MORE ENJOYABLE. HEADLINES ARE BOLD AND LARGE IN SOME CASES TAKEN UP HALF A PAGE, AND THEY ARE USUALLY POSITIONED ALONGSIDE AN IMAGE THAT ALSO SUMMARISES EVENTS.
