V. «The Press»
«The Press» is another popular way of getting information. Let’s read the article about the British newspapers and say:
What’s difference between «the serious» and «the popular» newspapers»?
NEWSPAPERS IN BRITAIN
All newspapers in Britain, daily or Sunday ones, can be broadly divided into the quality press and the popular press. The quality newspapers are also known as «heavies» and they usually deal with domestic and overseas news, with detailed and extensive coverage of sports and cultural events. Besides they also carry financial reports, travel news, and book and film reviews.
The popular press, or the «populars», are also known as tabloids, as they are smaller in size being halfsheet in format. Some people also call them the «gutter press» — offering news for people less interested in daily detailed news reports. They are characterized by large headlines, carry a lot of big photographs, and concentrate on the personal aspects of news, with reports of the recent sensational and juicy bits of events, not excluding the Royal Family. The language of a tabloid is much more colloquial than that of quality newspapers.
Here is a possibly witty though true classification of English newspapers:
The Times is read by the people who run the country.
The Mirror is read by the people who think they run the country.
The Guardian is read by the people who think about running the country.
The Mail is read by wives of the people who run the country.
The Daily Telegraph is read by the people who think the country ought to be run as it used to be.
The Express is read by the people who think it is still run as it used to be.
The Sun is read by the people who don’t care who runs the country as long as the naked girl on page three is attractive.

Текст для аудирования:
The BBC broadcasts on five national and 32 local radio stations. Each of the BBC radio stations specializes in a particular type of programme: Radio 1 specializes in rock music; Radio 2 in popular music and light entertainment; Radio 3 in classical music; Radio 4 in current affairs and drama; Radio 5 in current affairs and sport.
Most people listen to the radio in the morning. They like background music while getting ready to go to school or driving to work. Radio 1 is still the most popular radio station with an average of 11.2 million listeners. It used to have many more listeners (about 18 million in 1984), but is now not as popular because of competition from 150 new commercial radio stations. Very few young people listen to any of the BBC radio stations: the top three radio stations for 15- and 18-year-olds are all commercial.
