    It's for english lang AS. For my plan I want to write my intended audience. Would it be fair to say that anyone aged 18+ would read a broadsheet newspaper? I do and I'm sixteen, so I don't see any problem, sometimes the teachers can be a bit picky over audience though.

    I don't think all that many young people read broadsheets.. you'll probably get a biased response on here though. I read one occasionally, at uni, but I would never actually buy one.

    Remember that the widest read paper is The Sun at 2,898,113 a day. For comparison, The Times is 466,311 and the Grauniad is 270,582.

    That's true actually, they're pretty expensive, the news is always on the internet for free. So for my audience I've put Male and Female, aged 25-70, I want to put something like broadsheet readers or middle class but that sounds a bit... dunno, like something I couldn't really put if you know what I mean. Too informal, I need something equivalent to middle class readers but more subtle.

    You should have taken English Literature; you're not presented with such trivial tasks.

    Regarding readership of broadsheets, you need to be more specific on the demographic - rather than "18+" or "25-70".

    Edit: why have I been given negative rep?

    I took literature as well. (And prefer it, a lot of the time anyway. :lol:) So in terms of being more specific- gender? background? I've put male and female, broadsheet readers (i.e. people with an interest in current affairs, politics, education) Anything else?

    Can I just say it's nice to see people refer to the Grauniad by it's correct name, I didn't know many people still knew about this!

    Perhaps class and intellect (especially with broadsheets). For example, you could state that the 16-25 year old demographic would have a considerable amount of politically immersed individuals, young businessmen and women, and people in education.

    I wouldn't say so. I was a bit of The Times reader at 16/17, until the Mordochisation just became too much.

    I read the Indy when I get a chance, but times when I pick it up are few and far between.

    I reckon young people in the workplace are likely to read papers, but more red tops like The Sun than anything else.

    First a 15-year old speech.

    Now a 16-year old article.

    What's tomorrow, a 17 year old porn movie...?

    I don't, and I'm 21. I don't think many young people do at all really. Out of my friends, I would say only a handful do.
