Tabloid gets tabloid treatment. Oh, what fun!

28 Jul

Working on an article about the media war that broke out with the phone-tapping scandal in Britain –you know, the one that brought down News Of The World.

No one really questions who reads these crappy papers. (Typical front page story in NotW: “F1 boss has sick orgy with hookers.”) So I am sure there are very few who moan the loss of the ‘red tops’ as there are referred to in the industry.

I found a great project (the mock up is his on left) by Adam Westbrook,  a journalism lecturer who asks “If you edited the final News Of The World, what would your front page be?”

The Time cover below, by the way, is real.
