The Sensation of Tabloids

Though not as popular as they once were, tabloids are still a prevalent industry in our society. We have a fascination with not only the rich and the famous but also just scandals in general. So just what draws us to them?

  • They are inexpensive.
  • They draw us in using opinion and emotion.
  • They invite the reader to apply judgement or derision.
  • They tell stories–some true others completely fictional.
  • They bring the rich, powerful, and famous down to our level.
  • They let the reader become immersed in a world with few real-life consequences.
  • On the surface, they disclose secrets and private information. Often an illusion but it makes us feel like “insiders” regardless.
  • Cover a broad range of interests.
