Description

This volume examines how tabloid newspapers are read and the relation between the messages they present and the popular culture on which they both draw and aim to appeal. In a series of interrelated studies, the authors examine the theoretical problems in assessing popular journalism, and consider common examples of its manifestations - its relationship to media stars, the coverage of sport, and the presentation of news in a "popular" form.
