 NEWSPAPERS AND MAGAZINE

 ”Why should I read newspapers and magazines? I get news on TV and radio.” You may have heard people say that. They don’t know that there is much more fun than just news in a newspaper or a magazine.You enjoy reading special articles about hobbies, home, sport, and movie stars. Maybe you’ll like comics. You read where to buy what you need at a lowest price, what happened yesterday in your town and around the world. Newspapers also tell you where to go for fun. They also tell you about shows and sports. Lots of events happen to people, and newspapers tell you what happened, who did it, where it happened, why it happened and how it happened.No one can read everything in the newspaper every day. But if you read a part of your newspaper every day, you will know a lot.The first American newspaper was published in Boston in 1690. Now lots of magazines and newspapers are published in the USA. They keep up with all the new discoveries and events that are happening every day and bring the world of events into your home.Magazines and newspapers can be divided into two large groups - mass and specialized. Mass magazines and newspapers are intended for large group of people, living in different places and having many different interests. Among them are newspapers and magazines for teachers, for cat lovers, for stamp collectors. In fact, there is a magazine and a newspaper to fit any interest.Most U.S. cities today have only one newspaper publisher. In more than 170 American cities, a single publisher produces both a morning and an evening newspaper. But some cities (fewer than 30) have different owners. The “New York Times,” “USA Today” and “Washington Post” can be read everywhere in the United States. Do you want to know the price? Today most sell for 45 cents or more a copy. Surprisingly, many people buy newspaper more for the advertising than for the news. Advertising accounts for 65 percent of newspaper revenues.

Here are some of the magazines you might read.

News magazines. “Time” and “Newsweek.” They come out once a week and give summaries of world and national news and background information on the news.

Digests. They are magazines that print articles that have already been published some- where else.

Fiction magazines. They print short stories. Two popular ones are “Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine” and “Fantasy and Science Fiction.”

Magazines for African Americans have articles about African Americans and news of interest to black persons. Some of them are “Sepia” and “Ebony.”

Women’s magazines deal with many subjects: family life, child care, health, home decorating, beauty, marriage, divorce, and do-it-yourself projects.  There are also advice columns, short stories and articles about famous women. Other magazines specialize in beauty, or other tips on face make-up and hair-does.

There are magazines for brides and for teenage girls.

Sports. “Sport Illustrated” is one of the most popular sports magazines.  It deals with amateur and professional sports.

If you are interested in model trains, antiques, sewing, cooking, crafts and magic, you can find some magazines for yourself. There are plenty of other magazines to choose from, too.

 

 Ex.2. You know that papers and magazines have lots of sections. Read these headlines and try to guess what sections they belong to. 

1. New Plastic Surgery Miracles.

a) Section “Families” (in a newspaper).

2. Dieting? The pill you must take.   

b) “Midwest Living” (Everything about Midwest and Midwesterners).

3. Focus on Health.

c) TV and Cable Guide (magazine or newspaper)

4. Where Have All the Manners Gone?

d) “Woman’s World” or section “Health” in a newspaper.

PRESS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM

The daily circulation of papers in Britain is just over 14 million copies, which is about 3 papers for every 4 households, All British papers can be classified into two major groups: quality and popular papers. A quality paper is a serious national paper that aims at the educated reader. Quality papers contain detailed news coverage and comment, authoritative editorials, a wide range of topical features written by experts in their field, arts and literary reviews and much professional advertising. The quality papers are the “Times”, the “Guardian”, the “Independent”, the “Daily Telegraph” and the “Financial Times”. A popular paper is a newspaper whose format and content is designed for the undemanding reader. Most popular papers are tabloids, i.e. papers with small-size pages (conventionally about 30 cm by 40 cm). They have brief and direct news reports and a large number of photographs. Emphasis is put on personal stories (especially when sensational, or involving a figure in the public eye such as a member of the royal family), and importance is also given to sports and to entertaining features such as cartoons and contests.

Newspapers in Britain are mostly owned by individuals or by big publishing companies called the “empires”, not by the government or political parties. The editors of “the newspapers are usually allowed considerable freedom of expression. This is not to say that newspapers are without political bias. The political tendency of quality papers varies from conservative (the “Daily Telegraph”) or independent/conservative (the “Times” and the “Financial Times”) to centre (the “Independent”) and liberal (the “Guardian”). Popular tabloids like the “Daily Express”, the “Daily Star” and the “Sun”, for example, usually reflect conservative opinion in their comment and reporting, while the “Daily Mirror” has a more left-wing bias.

In addition to national daily newspapers there are nine national papers published on Sundays. Most of “Sundays” contain more reading matter than daily papers, and several of them include “colour supplements separate colour magazines, which contain photographically-illustrated feature articles. There is also quite a number of regional papers – usually evening papers or weeklies.

 

Answer the questions:

1. What major groups can British newspapers be subdivided into?

2. What kind or reader does each type aim at?

3. What do “quality papers” usually contain?

4. What is a “tabloid”?

5. Who are newspapers in Great Britain owned by?

6. What political opinion do newspapers in Great Britain reflect?

7. What other types of newspapers except daily newspapers are there?

Начало формыHow many different fitness magazines do you  to?

  1. I'm kind of tired tonight. I wouldn't just staying home.
  2. I can't believe you read that magazine. It's just full of  articles about celebrities.
  3. Some of the stories in this are just ridiculous.
  4. It  nuts that he doesn't call when he says he's going to.
  5. There was an article about the new stadium in this morning's.

odd: Oh, Simon, I see you have today's paper.

Simon: Yes, I read the paper every day.

Todd: So today do we have good news or bad news?

Simon: Well, world news is always bad, and for me sports is always good, sports news, but I felt an earthquake yesterday and so, I've basically l ooked at the headlines today first and just to see if the earthquake was in the paper, and it was.

Todd: Nobody died did they?

Simon: I don't think so, but for me it felt quite strong.

Todd: Actually, speaking of papers, I love the paper, and I read it every day, but there is one thing that I hate about the newspaper, and that's you read all the stories on the front page and then they stop, they're cut in half, and then you have to go to the middle of the paper to finish, and it just drives me nuts because I take the train to work every day and the train is so crowded sometimes I can't actually turn the paper, fold the paper to get to story on the inside, so I have to wait until I get to work, so I read six stories, seven stories half way and I have to wait till later to find out the ending.

Simon: Yeah, that's terrible. I do something similar. I, when I, I take also, I also take a busy train in the morning, and I just read the front page, and the back page. The front page has the headlines, the back page has the sports, and then when I get to work, if I have free time I just open up and finish the story that I read. (Yeah) I have a question, what do you prefer, do you prefer the tabloid style paper, which opens up like a book and you read each page, like a book, or do you prefer the traditional paper where, which is all folded neatly and into sections, like A B C D.

Todd: Um, that's a good point, I guess, or a good question, uh, I guess I'm used to the old traditional style but I have to admit, the tabloid style is a lot more convenient, um, so I wouldn't mind if my paper changed to that style. (OK) What do you prefer?

Simon: Yeah, I prefer the tabloid, just because it's easier to read.

Todd: The only thing I don't like about some tabloids is that they put a lot of colors on the paper and it's not as easy to read as the more traditional papers I think.

Simon: Well, the other meaning of tabloid is the kind of newspaper that prints just glossy stories with pictures and usually celebrity news, that's not really world news, or sports or anything but about Micheal Jackon's trial or what celebrity got which hair cut, so that's a different kind of tabloid, but yeah.

Todd: So do you subscribe to the newspaper or just buy one every day?

Simon: I buy one every day because I sometimes buy a different papers.

OK, the newspapers in England, well, we've got quite a lot of newspapers, some of the more serious ones like The Times. Then you got the middle of the range, things like the Daily Mail and the Daily Express, and then you got the British tabloids, which were quite famous for, and the tabloids are quite interesting. Basically, the tabloids are just gossip, and they will report anything and everything in great detail. Um, a lot of people kind of disapprove of the tabloids but personally I find them quite interesting and entertaining. In our house, we have a tabloid newspaper, The Daily Mirror and we have the Daily Mail as well. And in the Mirror you'll get all the gossip, and things like horoscopes, and real celebrity news like recently you've had the David Beckham thing that he's been having an affair, and that was interesting. It went into real detail all the text messages that they sent and everything, uh, and it is kind of, it is just gossip, but then many people get the tabloids because it reports the sport in a lot of detail, so a lot of men get the, for the football scores and horse racing and everything.

PRESS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM

The daily circulation of papers in Britain is just over 14 million copies, which is about 3 papers for every 4 households, All British papers can be classified into two major groups: quality and popular papers. A quality paper is a serious national paper that aims at the educated reader. Quality papers contain detailed news coverage and comment, authoritative editorials, a wide range of topical features written by experts in their field, arts and literary reviews and much professional advertising. The quality papers are the “Times”, the “Guardian”, the “Independent”, the “Daily Telegraph” and the “Financial Times”. A popular paper is a newspaper whose format and content is designed for the undemanding reader. Most popular papers are tabloids, i.e. papers with small-size pages (conventionally about 30 cm by 40 cm). They have brief and direct news reports and a large number of photographs. Emphasis is put on personal stories (especially when sensational, or involving a figure in the public eye such as a member of the royal family), and importance is also given to sports and to entertaining features such as cartoons and contests.

Newspapers in Britain are mostly owned by individuals or by big publishing companies called the “empires”, not by the government or political parties. The editors of “the newspapers are usually allowed considerable freedom of expression. This is not to say that newspapers are without political bias. The political tendency of quality papers varies from conservative (the “Daily Telegraph”) or independent/conservative (the “Times” and the “Financial Times”) to centre (the “Independent”) and liberal (the “Guardian”). Popular tabloids like the “Daily Express”, the “Daily Star” and the “Sun”, for example, usually reflect conservative opinion in their comment and reporting, while the “Daily Mirror” has a more left-wing bias.

In addition to national daily newspapers there are nine national papers published on Sundays. Most of “Sundays” contain more reading matter than daily papers, and several of them include “colour supplements separate colour magazines, which contain photographically-illustrated feature articles. There is also quite a number of regional papers – usually evening papers or weeklies.

 

Answer the questions:

1. What major groups can British newspapers be subdivided into?

2. What kind or reader does each type aim at?

3. What do “quality papers” usually contain?

4. What is a “tabloid”?

5. Who are newspapers in Great Britain owned by?

6. What political opinion do newspapers in Great Britain reflect?

7. What other types of newspapers except daily newspapers are there?

US NEWSPAPERS

In the USA daily newspapers are published in 34 different languages. The daily newspapers are of two kinds: quality and popular. A quality paper is a serious newspaper, which publishes articles and commentaries on politics.

A popular paper contains many photographs; its articles are often sensational and mostly deal with private life of famous people.

The “Wall Street Journal” is a quality paper. It covers national and international news. It is a business newspaper with the largest circulation in the country. The “Washington Post”, a serious daily newspaper, covers the meetings of the Congress. The “US Today” has a circulation of 1,2 million. It was meant to be the only truly national newspaper. But it is not enough for the country where state, city and local news most deeply affect the reader.

One can say that there is no national paper in the USA. Most paper are distributed locally. But in another sense there is a national press in the USA. Some of the largest newspapers not only print, but collect and sell news, news features and photographs. The “New York Times”, the “Washington Post”, the “Los Angeles Times” are the best news services in the country. There are also newspapers in the USA, which are famous all over the world for their quality. The “New York Times” is “the world’s top daily”.

 

Answer the questions.

1. What are the two kinds of daily newspapers in the USA?

2. What are the most important quality papers in the USA?

3. In what sense is it correct to say that there is no national press in the USA?

 

PRESS IN THE USA

In 1986, a total of 9 144 newspapers (daily, Sunday, weekly) appeared in the USA. Newspapers are published in 34 different languages. Most daily papers in the USA are of the “quality” rather than the popular” variety. Among the 20 newspapers with the largest circulation only two or three regularly feature crime, sex and scandal. The paper with the largest circulation, “The Wall Street Journal”, is a very serious paper indeed.

It is often said that there is no “national press” in the United States as there is in Great Britain, for instance. In one sense this is true. There are no official or government-owned newspapers in the USA. There is no state censorship, that is,court or judges cannot stop a story from being printed or published. Most daily newspapers are distributed locally, or regionally. People buy one of the big city

newspapers in addition to small local ones. A few of the best-known newspapers, such as “The Wall Street Journal” can be found throughout the country. There has been one attempt to publish a truly national newspaper, “US Today”. But it has only a circulation of 1,2 million and can only offer news of general interest.

In another sense, however, there is a national press, one that comes from influence and the sharing of news. Some of the largest newspapers, such as “The New York Times”, “The Washington Post” and “The Los Angeles Times” are at the same time news-gathering businesses, or news services.

They not only print newspapers, but also collect and sell news, news features and photographs to hundreds of other papers in the USA and abroad. Thes newspapers have great national and international influence, spreading far beyond their own readers. In addition, these newspapers and others, such as “Christian Science Monitor”, “The Baltimore Sun” or the “Milwaukee Journal” are frequently mentioned among papers of international excellence. In a large international survey of newspaper editors, “The New York Times” was ranked by most as “the world’s top daily”.

American newspapers get much of their news from the same source as all newspapers in the world – the two world’s largest news agencies – AP (Associated Press) and UPI (United Press International). Neither of them is owned, controlled or operated by the government. They have thousands of subscribers – newspapers, radio and television stations and other agencies which pay to receive and use the news and photographs in more than 100 countries of the world.

Answer the questions.

1. What is press in the USA characterized by?

2. What are the two major kinds of daily newspapers in the USA?

3. Why do we say that there is no national press in the USA?

4. Why can we say that there is a national press in the USA?
