SUNDAY PAPERS
Los periódicos dominicales (Sunday Papers) juegan un papel importante en el Reino Unido. Algunos de ellos, como The Observer o News of the World sólo se publican ese día, mientras que otros, como The Sunday Times, The Sunday Telegraph, The Independent on Sunday, The Sunday Express o The Sunday Mirror, son ediciones especiales de periódicos diarios. Los dominicales suelen tener distintas secciones, con espacios para cultura, viajes, deportes o negocios, además de incluir muchos de ellos una revista en color.
En Estados Unidos se suelen comprar más los periódicos locales que los de tirada nacional. De éstos, el principal es el New York Times. Al igual que en el Reino Unido, los periódicos dominicales tienen más secciones de lo habitual, con artículos más extensos y venden más ejemplares. Pero a diferencia de los británicos, los estadounidenses suelen comprar un solo periódico los domingos.
