TABLOIDS AND BROADSHEETS
En el Reino Unido hay dos tipos de periódicos, llamados, según su tamaño, tabloids o broadsheets. Éstos son más grandes y suelen centrarse en noticias serias, artículos de contenido cultural y un análisis en profundidad de la actualidad, por lo que también se les denomina quality press. Algunos nombres muy conocidos son The Daily Telegraph, The Times, The Guardian y The Independent. Los llamados tabloids suelen tener grandes titulares, artículos cortos, muchas fotografías, opiniones espontáneas y muestran una clara preferencia por las historias escandalosas o sentimentales. Por sus contenidos sensacionalistas también reciben el nombre de gutter press. Los más conocidos de éstos son The Sun, The Daily Mirror, The Daily Express, The Daily Mail y The Daily Star.
En Estados Unidos, el término standard-sized newspapers es el equivalente de broadsheet. El principal periódico de este tipo es la edición nacional del New York Times. Entre los tabloids más conocidos están el New York Daily News y el Chicago Sun-Times.
