January 16, 2011
Hi! I have received this email from Isabel:
I have found  two pieces of news and I want to write about the differences between THE GUARDIAN  AND  THE SUN:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/jan/15/tunisia-protests-zine-al-abidine-ben-ali
1.THE GUARDIAN focuses on the political issueTHE SUN tends to have a dramatic feel.
2.THE GUARDIAN has longer paragraphs,the language is more serious and this piece of news has only a little photograph
Sentences in THE GUARDIAN ARE LONGER TOO AND FLAMBOYANT.
Can you coment any more about this?

    The Sun shows a picture more spectacular and bigger than the Guardian, moroever the headline in the Sun tries to capture our attention as it stands out more than in the Guardian. Another difference we can find is that the pharagrahs in the Sun contains less words than in the Guardian so it is much easier to read.

    THE SUN (the tabloid) has huge headlines than THE GUARDIAN(the broadsheet). The tabloid uses astonish big fotographies comparing with the formal newspaper. The language is more clear in the tabloid because is writed by short sentences and most paragraphs. On the contrary THE GUARDIAN is writed in a formal language with long paragraphs, more explanation of the facts, even with a brief history

    In my opinion, I think that in Spain there are neither tabloides nor broadsheets, like in England where there are really big differences between those newspapers.

    Here, in Spain, more or less all the newspapers say the same news but it is only the political point of wiew what changes, and sometimes surprising though it may seem the new is controversial.

    So, it depends on the newspaper that you like to read, perhaps it is a good option to read several papers to know more about the news.
