Advantages:  International news (no emphasis on American affairs)  Old articles available for free  Available also in Spanish Drawbacks:  No video materials Advantages:  Video and audio  Simple navigation Drawbacks:  Nothing new, mostly a compilation of news provided by other agencies (e.g. Associated Press, Reuters etc.) The Mirror. A hundred percent tabloid. Imortant news flash and fade away, less important appear all at once together with some videos and commercials. That makes moving around and finding anything important a bit inconvenient. The colors used are bloody red and white; to my mind they provoke nervousness. In fact, the priorities here are to fulfill the needs of the majority of people but not to be informative as a source for special audience. The Wall Street Journal. The newspaper mostly presents the information about business, world markets and politics. It is strictly organized, so that the information can be found easily. Originally it was designed for narrow audience but now everybody is welcome although the newspaper is mostly oriented towards its target audience – businessmen – and is loyal to it. The design and the content are similar – serious and well-planned. The Independent. News here are classified according to the geographical characteristic unlike the two above-mentioned examples. Besides, the classification is based on the topic. Each link brings us to the detailed description of the issue; there are no short outlines of the problem discussed in the article as in most cases. This seems to be one of the most classic variants of presenting the news. The Independent pays equal attention to all sides of life and does it accurately, to my mind that deserves admiration. London Evening Standard is a newspaper that highlights the cultural side of 9

life of the British. It is a list of entertainment opportunities of different kind. It is similar to the Russian magazine “Afisha” both in the content and the design. The difference is that, unlike its Russian “brother”, this newspaper doesn’t give opinions about this or that event, restaurant or film. It gives only objective short and informative notes about prices, location etc. The Observer. According to the content and to the stresses made in the newspaper on particular news, this newspaper is designed for middle-class people. It includes both important and entertaining information, and its target audience is wide.
