Cheap newspaper (?!)


This hoarding is put up on the way to my work... And it really irritates me. Why do they have to use sex to sell even newspapers?!!!

Whoa ! hot

Sandy Carlson said...

Good point. It's everywhere. There are Shania Twain videos in which she sells her music with her sex appeal but throws a few little kids in to--what? Throw us off track? Make it sicker? We're a confused world; beauty and sex appeal are not the same thing. Neither is the same as intelligence!

Trish said...

yes...enough already with the bods! These kinds of pictures are all over the place and the only reason a newspaper prints this kind of stuff is that there is otherwise no real news in the paper....

Anju said...

It's quite disgusting...they have another layout which is even more explicit.

Bungi said...

The artist - It is infact cheap price wise too. And some people buy it. But real newpaper reading folks don't buy it...

Mahathma - *shaking my head* tsk tsk sogihuhu

Sandy - What?! Kids?! *digusted sigh*

Trish - Yeah! So true. Is that all they can think up of and pass of as news?! "News made exciting" i believe... Bah!

Anju - Don't tell me! I already had a very low opinion of DC. And now it has hit rock bottom...

tom said...

"Why do they have to use sex to sell even newspapers" well, because sex sells??!! :)
i don't know what kind of newspaper that is, probably tabloid, but if they wanna have slavering men as readers, i don't mind. you don't need to buy it.

Because if they attempt to, they get 50% of the population loving it and wanting to buy the paper and the other 50% refusing to buy the paper and are angry but are talking about it, which is almost as good as buying it. Man. Sometimes the world is an evil place.

The Mahathma said...

DOnt look at it ! why the fusss!!! dont buy the news paper ! areh u shud have zoomed in on the "get both sides of the story"

Bungi said...

Mandy - Grrr. Yeah. And i saw a worse one in the Teynampet signal... DC again...

Tom - Well, they do use sex to sell everything. But even news?!! Sigh.

Choconet - Yeah. It is more of a yellow journal... Not too popular for real news. And it is cheap price wise too...

Brandy - Oh heck! I never thought of that. Dang! Free advertising in my blog! *gasp*

Mahathma - I would, if i could...

Black Pixie said...

They use sex to sell everything these days my dear. Everything is sexualized - even things that don't remotely have to do with s.e.x

I too find it uncalled-for and irritating.

Bungi said...

Black Dixie - Isn't it really sad...

editorialninja said...

they're just following the sun, news of the world. its annoying but unfortunately the sun is the UK's most read newspaper. so the only reason newspapers like the DC exist is cos thats what people want.

*****the journalist gets off her soapbox

To learn a little more about India I signed up for one of the India papers RSS feeders... The only news they ever gave me was of what the USA stars in Hollywood were up to. OH SUCH IMPORTANT NEW! -not
