British Newspapers

Read to know about Great Britain Newspapers

Although American people spend a great deal of time watching TV, books and newspapers are still popular in this country. But the British people are greater newspapers readers. There are few homes to which newspaper is not delivered every morning. Many homes have two, or even three, newspapers every day.

Daily papers are those that are published daily from Monday to Saturday. There are the morning papers and the evening papers. The provincial newspapers give very full attention to local, as well to national affairs. As in other countries, newspapers in Great Britain vary greatly in their ways of sending the news. There are serious papers for those who want to know about important happenings everywhere, both domestic news and foreign news.

There are popular newspapers for those who prefer entertainment to information. There are newspapers whose pages are largely filled with news of sports and with interviews with film stars or accounts of crime. Most newspapers provide interesting and useful articles for their women readers. They tell them about latest fashions in clothes, how to furnish their homes and how cook new delicious dishes.

The popular newspapers naturally have much larger circulations than the serious newspapers. Two popular papers with large circulations are the Daily Mirror and the Daily Sketch. To serious newspapers belongs the Times. It has a high reputation for reliable news and serious comments on the news. The Times, of course, does not publish the strip cartoons that are so common in the cheaper and popular papers. It does, however, publish a crossword puzzle every day, with clues that are both clever and amusing.
