SERIOUS JOURNALISM AND POPULAR NEWSPAPERS

EXTRA (Globo Group) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is a great example of how a popular newspaper can be a good newspaper and do serious journalism.

Like this almost “show, don’t tell” front page.

Just the facts, just the pictures and a compelling headline.

Well done!

What about all this type garbage?

Shame to them!
