British journalism

Here in Britain there are several newspapers in circulation. Most of those I saw are all tabloids.  And true to their character they mostly contain gossip and opinion. There is hardly any real hard facts or news, as such. For that matter, our English newspapers back in India (The Hindu, Times of India... ) are of a very very high standard.  Looks like the people here expect nothing more than gossip, opinion, celebrity news, sports and the like from their daily newspapers.  The radio and TV journalism seems to carry the torch for the print too.  There is hardly any real news or issues related to the major happenings around the world in black and white. Even when present the space allocated to these is negligible compared to the rest of the junk that fills the papers.

And the number of pages each tabloid contains, gosh! Real ecological waste!
