How would you explain the boom of the tabloid press?
Sad and pathetic that people care about such unimportant things. But shame on the media for MAKING it more important and filling the pages with sensationalist BS.
I didn't know it was booming. Not in Australia or the UK, where I work and have worked. All newspapers are suffering decline to differing degrees.
The big money in their photos. Personally, I ignore almost all of it.
It should be here to statiate people's need of banalities
The public pretends to hate it, but everyone reads it and knows what is going on. It is our need to build people up and then knock them down. It's actually a sad statement on society.
It's simple: when the demand exists, the offer appears.
Current fashion in the world of instantaneity.
Here in Lebanon I can't say its booming , for its simply not. I believe they use the strategy who-gets-the-news-first ,kind of strategy.
The boom with 'tabloid' press is owed to peoples unsatiable hunger for Celebrity News. Also, the 'tabloid' magazines who pay money for this type of information is sort of an invitation for anyone to become a 'tabloid' correspondent.
mass culture grows superficial
Drama makes life interesting and people want to know the behind the scenes of players. For example we know what Messi can do with a soccer ball, but can he cook, drive or swim?
A friend told me that tabloids are the modern day equivalent of Greek myths. Everyone wants to know what the gods are doing, and whether they are good or bad.
eu adoro os paparazzis kkkkkkkkkk não acho que mostrar os escandalos das celebridades, seja fazer sensacionalismo, é apenas mostrar a verdade, porque nenhum famoso é perfeito, e todo mundo sabe disso...
Newspapers are a business, and unfortunately, sensationalism sells. Somehow, knowing about the latest sex scandal or seeing someone covered in blood with their guts spilling on the pavement is more appealing than knowing more about what's really happening in the world. People tend to go to tabloids that dish out gossip to escape from reality. Fortunately, there is a cure for that: it is called 'fiction literature'.
