We have tabloids all over the place in the U.S., and they are just as bad as the British tabloids.

I'm not surprised to hear you have the gutter press in Florida as well.
Gee, it is the gutter press if it is in the USA. What about the British gutter press?? I have heard much worse about them then our rags!

It makes one wish there was a Luxembourgish-style inviolable clause in our non-existant constitution.

I agree! most of the lower orders of the US press are still on a higher place than the brits.

The tabloid British press is just vicious in many more respects...very appalling in their ways to get headlines and pictures..

The U.S. tabloids are not perfect by any stretch...but...

I don't think Skydragon was denying that the British tabloids exist and that they practise some rather questionable journalism. The comment had to do with the gutter press existing in Florida too. Please note "too."

Well, not that I have much respect for the Mirror, the Sun, or even the Mail, but I'd say they operate at a considerably higher standard than rags like the National Enquirer.

The British and American papers are arranged differently. Most of the British papers are national in scope - the Times, Telegraph, Guardian, Independent, Mail, Mirror, and Sun (and others that I might have forgotten) are distributed nationally. Most major US newspapers (apart from USA Today) are local and are based in one of the big cities. The British local papers are almost entirely focussed on local news, whereas papers like the Washington Post, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and Chicago Tribune are a mixture of local and national news but mostly don't tend to be available to buy in other parts of the country. Because the major British papers are available countrywide, they tend to be targetted at different demographic (rather than geographic) groups. That's why some are full of "hard" news and some are more full of gossip.

It isn't that one way is necessarily better than others but that the different sizes and histories of the two countries means that the newspapers have developed differently. It'll be interesting to see what the Internet does to papers in both countries.

I think we're a little confused about semantics. by "higher place" I didnt mean that the national enquirer prints more truthful information. libel laws in the US are much more relaxed than in Britain. so there's a lot more innacurate printed in US tabloids.

I think the general tone of british tabloids is ruder and less respectful. like their photoshopping a pic of Camilla to make her look like a horse. that sort of thing happens in the US too, of course, but I dont think its quite as pervasive as in the UK.

Thank you Elspeth.:)

I was saying that any paper that judges someone on their looks, is IMO, the gutter press, whether they are in the UK, Russia or America. To me tabloid = gutter press.

I had never realised how sensitive some Americans could be! so I will say it again,

Thank you for a well thought out post IMO.:)
