    I never saw the point of tabloids. We have porn magazines, we have real newspapers. Tabloids are in a weird middle ground. Pretty obsolete imo

    As much as they are seen as less worthy than the broadsheets they still provide us with valuable info (yes I do need to know how many times this week Katie Price has worn that horrific tutu and leotard). My opinion is any news you're taking in is good and some people have no inclination to read the broadsheets (and need the news dumbed down a bit).

    Well your opinion is completely ignorant of the fact that the tabloids are notoriously bad at providing accurate information. Maybe if they dumbed down the stories, but kept them accurate, it would be cool. But they just spout one load of piss.

    They are nothing but scare-mongering moron-papers.

    What Katie Price is wearing is not news.

    I'm guessing you didn't get that the bit in the brackets was sarcasm?

    Well I do read the tabloids, I also read the broadsheets as well so if that makes me stupid then that's fine.

    Unfortunately, despite the emphasis on accuracy during journalism training it tends to be overlooked in the newsroom. In my experience, a hell of a lot of sh*te is printed- local papers make stuff up, broadsheets have been sued for their lack of accuracy. Yes the tabloids are notorious for it but it happens across all levels of news providing.

    Your emphasis was on the inaccuries within tabloids, I was merely saying this happens across the spectrum. Glad we agree on that.
