I really should be asleep by now but the jet lag is dragging – I can’t seem to sleep till at least midnight. Instead I thought I’d look at the U.S. Papers I brought back – really interesting difference in formats. They all seem to be that skinny broadsheet size, folded with zillions of supplements. I actually quite like it – it’s easier to handle than traditional UK broadsheets and quite pleasing – but you do tend to lose lots of bits from the middle.
Obviously the language is different in its usage ( he died Monday, not he died on Monday) but the basics of journalism are the same. All seemed a lot lighter on advertising – or maybe it is just more subtle on front end pages
And one thing stood out – they are pretty cheap!
What do you think? JJ
