1. Magazine found in the check out line at Wal-Mart for people who have absolutely nothing better to do with their lives but talk about how "celebrities" are stupid and ugly and point out the inadequacies of people in the photos while grunting as they bend over their huge rolls of fat pulling their food stamps out of the purse in the basket of the electronic cart-rascal.

2. Useless pieces of paper stapled together containing text and photos completely irrelevant to my life.
Tabloid Reader: Did you hear about Lindsay Lohan's latest DWI?

Me: Thank you! I'm such a better person for knowing this!

A worthless paper. Full of pointless stories about why Britney this and why Britney that. Tales about illegal immigrants. Boring celebrity stories that keep the vacuous-minded completely riveted! Anyone who takes these papers seriously isn't too smart ...

... the British love tabloids. They revel in the stories about illegal immigrants ... it gives them a "folk devil" to look down upon.

The effect: A large number of British people hate illegal immigrants. This has been partly fuelled by the tabloids' endless campaign against them, especially in the past few years.

"They should all be left on an Island" ... a typical tabloid reader, talking about illegal immigrants.

"Don't get me started on illegal immigrants" - a typical tabloid reader in Kent, UK

"Those Asians hang around in groups. The ones in Afganistan should be shot" ... young man reading tabloid in Canterbury, Kent, UK

"I think all application forms from Indians should be burnt" (puts on a fake indian accent after saying this) .... Human Resources woman in Maidstone, Kent, UK, working for a public sector company!! She'll get what's coming to her one day ....

Tabloid-loving racists are not uncommon in the UK ....

A style of journalism that proves journalism degrees are worthless. When you go to university, you’re supposed to come out a better person as well as more employable. They, on the other hand, are just well-paid, well-respected gossips who’d have had some assembly line job if they didn’t try so hard.
You stole the widow’s photo of her husband whilst pretending to lend an ear? Congratulations; you’re a tabloid journalist! Here’s 3 grand for the exclusive!
