Cultural Note: Newspapers
El 95% de los norteamericanos lee la prensa local. En EEUU existe solo un periódico de caracter nacional, el USA Today, los demás son locales. Algunos periódicos de ciudades grandes, tales como el New York Times, Los Angeles Times y The Washington Post, se leen a través de todo el país. Además el International Herald Tribune, publicado fuera de EEUU, se lee por muchos norteamericanos en el extranjero. En líneas generales la prensa norteamericana todavía es conservadora debido a la necesidad de alcanzar el mayor número de ventas posible. Hasta hace unos años el Reino Unido tenía dos clases de periódicos nacionales, los broadsheets o periódicos de formato grande, y los tabloids con un formato más pequeño. De los primeros, solo el Daily Telegraph y The Financial Timesconservan el formato grande. La llamada prensa seria son The Times y el Daily Telegraph (políticamente de derechas), The Guardian (de corte socialdemócrata), The Independent y The Financial Times. Entre los tabloids de carácter sensacionalista destacan The Sun, The Mirror, The Express y el Daily Mail. Existen también unos 1.500 periódicos locales de carácter diario o semanal.
