How Sensationalistic Tabloids Make Things Up
Tabloid journalism is a genre that focuses on extraordinary stories and gossip about international stars such as footballers, musicians, and actors. Most individuals do not consider tabloid journalists to be like their other counterparts since their style of covering news is particularly unique. However, the professional values and ethical standards set by these journalists are just the same as those of their newsroom counterparts. The word, tabloid, has a sensational legacy due to the history of their provocative headlines and the usually exaggerated stories. Tabloid journalism, at times, clashes with the law due to the defamatory nature of some of their reporting. A number of legal cases have arisen as a result of tabloid journalism and celebrities have sued media agencies seeking damages for sensational stories they claim to be untrue. Stories of celebrities engaging in drug abuse and acting irresponsibly are common on tabloids. The big question, often, is whether these stories are true and if tabloid journalists hold the same level of standards as their newsroom counterparts.
