1) Broadsheet and tabloid newspapersIn this essay I will explore the difference between broadsheet newspapers and tabloid newspapers. I will base my comments on the basis of "THE INDEPENDENT" and "THE SUN". "THE INDEPENDENT" is a broadsheet newspaper and "THE SUN" is a tabloid newspaper.These two newspapers have a completely different readership.While "The Sun" tries to reach the lower and middle classes, "The Independent" tries to reach the higher classes of society, such as business/professionals.The most obvious differences in these types of newspapers are found in the language and layout.
