      overall a cheap yet rich in content newspaper

      The daily star is a daily newspaper in the uk, that can be bought for under 50p, it is actually one of the cheapest of the daily taboloids
      The star has a simple layout with the front page more likely to be about a talent show winner than any political or major event
      Though the major news can be found in te inner pages.

      I buythis newspapermainly for the racing pages i think it has the best tipsters and the best layout of all the papers,
      if your into horse racing the sun is a joke to what they pick and select, where the star is great.
      The paper is also very big brother tv programme orirenated which is a good thing if you like the reality tv programme.
      the tv guide is also good plus the cost of the paper seems to be cheaper than the others.
      overall it just seems a much more clearer and easier read than the other papers. plus the horoscopes are good. if you look at other papers they are very poor , mystic meg? comon get real.

      The daily star is a worthy ready and a alternative the the other major tabloids like the sun.

        Uncopyrightables is the longest word you can spell out using individual letters of the alphabet, and its also a summary of most of the papers spurious content.Which is exactly the grammar skill you won’t need reading this pap. My excuse for buying this rag is that Tuesday is fantasy football day and I have to check my scores ok. The Star and The Sun are the workers paper through and through with back issue all over the staff canteen. Page three girls get pride of place inside the boy’s lockers with the rest making ideal bog roll or ludlows. A ludlow is the correct name of a peace of what ever placed under a pool table or cupboard to level it out. Today’s edition raised a few rye smiles with the snippet, and what turned out to be a leak that mobile phone thieves will be getting instant prison sentences in some cases. The METs remit has been to go easy on the black community and keep them out of jail I thought with this smoke easy pot policy. Eight out of ten phones stolen are buy ethnic minorities in most inner cities in GB. If this law is deployed we could arrest ten percent of Brixton and Hounslow tomorrow. Their ive got that out of my system. The front page today is the lift the working man needs from these rags and the very reason why they sell so well. Three pretty tarty pop princesses power the workers and encapsulate their need for tat over bad news to get through the day. The last thing you need on the 9-5 slog is the boring truth from a boardsheet in the canteen after packing bacon all morning. We know how bad it is out there so we don’t need intellectuals reminding us. We are most of those stories. There is some news here and the surprising arrests of the suspected terror suspects across the country also raised a chuckle. These are either the guys who have been known about for along time previous to September 11th and allowed to do their thing as long as it wasn’t here. Or
        they are a bunch or wannabes who may be sent of a cheque for the “how to be a terrorist kit”like you see in Viz magazine or something. I suspect the US have rounded up anyone who looks like a terrorist or Talaban to fill their quota to ship back to the Cuban base. Anyone connected here gets a tug on immigration rules. Hers a classic story that Londoners know all about.An Underground worker won 93 grand,yes 93 grand for racial abuse by his boss.Is it me or are most of the Underground staff non white anyhow.How can that much be shelled out of their valuable budget on schoolyard humor. Another incredible story from Jerusalem is where an America survived the latest suicide bomber and was also in the WT center on September 11. Weather and lottery results early on in the rag to check your numbers and a happy birthday for Tony Blackburn who’s 59.Des Occoner is seventy!.Becks and Posh are the top new names for dogs in Great Briatin.No comment on the last one. Building site of the week award where a page three stunna comes to your yard to get her tits out pretty much sums up the readership. Grab a free dance CD is again on what sort of people read this as is the constant Pop Idol stories that are making names for nobodies. Apparently Manchester Uniteds head of security is a ticket tout flogging alsorts on the side.I think he will be getting a visit from the NW constabulary. Double spread on the Eastenders new hunk to boost ratings and one of those annoying little boxes announcing that Rula Lenska who is also on the way to Albert Square said “F off”on Richard and Judy.No not to them but in character you see. Lots of mobile phone ads and the celebrity gossip page. Theres is called The Bitches who look slightly rough4 than Atomic Kitten.There hottest story is that Tazmin Outhwaite was spotted in Bundgeons which in all truth could damage your career. The girls of course spend all day ringin
        g up stars looking for free publicity and photo shoots suggesting these ludicrous storylines and location shoots. Well some people need to look up to these celebs and glamorous types. I don’t think you could have a more incestuous industry relationship going on. In the current climate when you see anther of those little snips saying girl dies after mysterious two day flu, doctors flummoxed you begin to see old ladies worring..Could Ebola have broken out in Hexham!.The letters page is a very tame affair with a maximum non-intellectual 50 words max. The first dodgy phone line odd the premium type offers you advice on money careers and problems with your runes?. Aghh the first picture of Jennifer “”Friends”Aniston bump for the new series and the web bride who sold her self for 250 grand. Now call me a cynic but stunt and publicity come to mind almost immedialtey. The prank line is the next in along line of those premium rip off lines where joke calls are made to your mates. Claire Sweeney is still living off her Celebrity Big Brother turn with a skimpy on with the wonderfully far sexier Mylene Klass showing her Chicago’s. Hot is the papers second gossip column pointing out that poor old Harry Potter has been blanked by the BAFTAS. World piece is assured because R Kelly has paid a secret visit to ground zero to pay his respects to the people who perished.. What about the poor Dominicans that was blasted out of the air. Oh know that was dodgy counterfeit parts from Italy now. Buffy the Vampire slayer has been voted the worlds biggest heroine with Lara Croft second. Oooooow that would have made Princess Diana very jealous if she was still around. Formula Ones Darren Manning (who I here you shout) has broken the record for driving backwards at 102mph!.Northamptonshire police force could murder that. Theres footy team with ten members of the Bunten family playing which demands a column of
        any Mickey Mouse newspaper. Imagine the man in black who did the Spurs Chelsea game reffing this one. He still would have sent Hasslebaink off! Another paper offering a chance to win a Villa in Spain.That’s the third this week I have seen that offer. You can also win a weeks fitness at your local gym.. I like the story of the ever winging Menzies Campbell MP who’s complaining about the lack of clocks on the new Westminster offices. Look out the window replied one wag. Theres a big clock just across the road. Well you never see clocks in shops and public places so I suppose he’s got a point. Then he again it might encourage members of parliament to actually turn up for meetings and such instead of dossing in their 24 hour bar. Theres a real Del Boy out there who an up 25 million pounds empire through dodgy dealing. His real name is Derrick to. More ring tone ads for mobiles and those silly logos demand a whole page. Oh the half price sale at Dixons that miraculously has exactly the same bargains.as all other electrical white and black goods chain stores. If you think the police are a good lot then spare a thought for a pub full of innocent boozers who were beaten up by the riot squad. It was a cup semi in Manchester and a 55year old copper was hospitalized by his opposite constabulary members having a quiet beer in near empty pub. Most of them are bad uns if you ask me. Teenager James Colemens hearing was wrecked by Vinnie Jones latest movie by wrecking his ear drum due to the volume.I hear it spoilt a lot of peoples day who shelled out to watch the dribble. Why is it that every newspaper ever printed has binocular ads in them. Are we a nation of peepers or is it essential kit for every mail order compulsive buyer. More ringtone adssssssssss. Center pages are the S-Club Seven Girls caked in massacre and jammed into lycra. Is it or do girls look less and less attractive with the more
        make up they plaster on. Apparently this qualifies them as official pop babes. Aghh the letters page of the problem page variety. They have that naughty cartoon strip that signifies that every girl in Britain wants to have a threesome. Oh and all those letters from punters (written by the agony aunt) you know alllll about. But the telephone advice lines are waiting there if you need advice on the female orgasm or understanding jealousy. A massive loan ad to get the working class further into debt. TV listings with more ringtone ads and fascias. What is it with people and their mobiles. Motor bike ads, now you don’t see many of them.Have you ever seen one on TV!. Car finance ads for the lads and more loans for the girls who cant meet the shoe budgets for the coming year. The astrology stars are as ambiguous as ever with good news al around for menopausal women. I worked for a local paper once where we would print the same ones up every three months. If your really dumb you can ring the papers astrologer that has written (not!) today’s predictions and hear more personal ones and completely different for 70p a minute. Ive never laughed at a newspaper cartoon strip yet and today is no exception. You can get a fiver for sending in a good joke with a picture of George Bus winning today’s. No it was “A man walked into a bar and said ohh that hurt. It was an iron bar”. 2 more pages of loans to bring the country to its knees along with the health service .One page on business news and then the sport has finally arrived. Mike Tyson is seeking that licensee today to make that historic fight/ruck in Vegas with Lennox. The chances of the seemingly corrupt boxing panel not giving him the go ahead is slim as two of the panel own hotels crying out for a tourism boost since September 11. Money shouts down morality in this city. Three pages on the nags with four on football and snippets on the little s
        ports. The still pause pics showing Tendulkar clearly knicking the ball through to stand in keeper Trescothick.And a seemingly obvious dismissal of their other opener highlights why everyone thinks Indian and sub continent cricket looks so fixed. Their cricket authorities demanded an extra game in the now six game series recently for reasons as yet unknown. Might be worth having a bet on the series being drawn which was obviously great odds when there were only five planned games six weeks ago. As I say its easy reading with easy crosswords to run off in the tea break and lunch. When your temping or slouching I still wouldn’t recommend it and only if your fantasy cricket team is going well should you bother. Star quality defiantly not. But star light can brighten dark gray winter days for some in the toil of the day.

          I think that the Daily Star get's to much stick from people. It is a really good paper. It's not to serious, but it still brings you the news. It's got a few entertaining stories mixed in with the serious stuff so the depressing news doesn't quite seem so depressing. It has plenty of showbiz news for anyone who is intrested. I would say it is the only daily news paper I would buy. I have to admit I don't buy it every day but if I do buy a paper it's this one, and I'm obviously not the only one, because it still manages to be one of the most popular daily tabloids.

            THE DAILY STAR……. I buy the Daily Star every day and before someone says it’s a working class rag,that’s why I buy it,I am proud to be working class and always will be,but I will certainly listen to why you read your daily paper… HEADLINES….. I am looking at Thursday 19th July issue and the headlines are,you guessed right.Big Brother andMadonna.Big headline inviting you to see Elizabeth’s breasts,I hate to say my own breasts are bigger but that’s a story for another day.You also have the latest update on the big romance of Paul & Helen,isnt Paul the biggest prat out.The last headline is Madonna and the girl stripper,does that even class as being something new.. THE BULK OF THE DAILY STAR… By the bulk I mean from when you open the Star until you reach the sports section.Page 3,well to be honest us blokes don’t buy the paper for page 3,it is after all just a photo and do you women really think we are that shallow?? The rest of the Star is full of the same sort of stories as the Sun,the latest scandals on the soap stars and pop stars and what they had for breakfast.The odd funny real life story like for example in this issue the two women who fought for a car parking space with one actually pushing the others car out of the spot with her car,must try that out actually!! Then all the adverts like PC World,Homebase and all the big advertisers,then you have Dawn Neesom’s column were she picks a topic like Big Brother or some other popular topic and gives her view.I find her humour quite good. The TV guide is good with all the sky channels as well and a preview of the films on,then lastly the Problem Page,was a bit annoyed to see they had published my wifes letter about “My husband is useless in bed”,I am cutting her housekeeping money!! THE SPORTS PAGES….. I like the sports section of
            the Daily Star,in this issue there are 13 pages which is 4 pages off racing,dogs and horses,6 pages of general sport like the golf,rugby and tennis and then the last 3 pages being the football. I would buy the Star for the sports section and on a Saturday it is even better with a pull out sports supplement.. CONCLUSION…… In the end the Star is only 25p,if you are looking a paper for serious news you have got the wrong newspaper,buy the Telegraph or the Express but if you want good sports coverage,a bit of a laugh about Big Brother or Madonna’s latest exploits or how Liam Gallagher is coping with fatherhood then buy the Star…I enjoy it is a good laugh and if it makes me laugh and its only 25p well I rest my case…So if 5 off you read this you have just bought me todays Star so thank you for buying me it and do call in again so I can buy tomorrows as well!!!! Art……

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              I usually buy the Daily Star on a Saturday, along with the Mirror, mainly because it’s an easy read which isn’t too taxing on the brain. I have seen this paper described as nothing short of soft porn on Dooyoo. I can only review it by giving an a balanced opinion based on my experience of reading it, normally only on a Saturday, but I’ve certainly not found it any worse than the Sun in recent times and, for what it’s worth, would not describe yesterdays issue as soft porn. I think it’s fair to say that the Star is probably nearest to the Sun in terms of its style and content. You can usually rely on the Star to come up with the most sensational headline of all the papers, which can be quite comical when there is something heavy going on in the world. If there was an asteroid heading for Earth it would probably be on page 8, replaced by some showbiz stars drugs problem on the front page. This Saturday (17/02) the front page was a full page picture of Geri Halliwell with the married boss of her record company on holiday in Miami. Although written as an apology for the Star’s previous days story, they were still using the picture to imply there may be something going on between them. Contrary to popular belief, the Star does still cover the news, with stories such as the possible release of Jamie Bulger’s killers and the recent Baghdad bombings getting a half page each. These two items were written in a fairly matter of fact way and were not sensationalised or trivialised. There were also reports of the Leeds footballers on trial and Puff Daddy’s problems inside the paper, but if you’re looking for in depth news reports buy another paper. The inside front page also contained the obligatory things like a weather forecast, currency exchange rates and lottery news. The rest of the stories tended to be celebrity based or more light-hearted stories from around the world. There were a few more p
              hoto’s of stars currently in the news One of the main reasons I buy Saturdays Daily Star is the regular column by Dominik Diamond, best known for being the host of Gamesmaster a few years ago. His column is a wittily/sarcasticly written selection of items about things that have either been in the news recently, like the Dome, or his observations on something that has happened to him. It could be said that he does attack soft targets, like Posh and Becks, but it’s still usually very funny. Other things in the paper included a double page of showbix related stories, featuring the likes of Stereophonics and Atomic Kitten, Mike Ward’s Soapbox review of what is happening and what is going to happen in the top TV soaps and star interviews. Saturday also has a pull-out 8 page guide to the days horse racing for anyne that’s interested. There were also the traditional cartoons, competitions and crossword pages and a page each for horoscopes and problems. After the holiday guide there were 15 pages dedicated to sports coverage, which covers everything from football, cricket and rugby to snooker, superbikes and even fishing. A serarate 50 page TV booklet was included in Saturdays paper which gives a fairly comprehensive guide to the weeks programmes including all terrestrial and major Sky satellite/Ondigital channels. Overall not a bad buy at 35 pence, although there are quite alot of adverts in both the paper and TV guide. I have read the Star during the week but find that there is alot less in it midweek. It is not trying to compete with papers like the Express or Mail but is OK as an alternative to the Sun/Mirror. Even the young lady on page 3 wasn’t topless on Saturday, which would please the people who are, understandably, offended by this.

                I buy a paper about four times a week. I mostly buy the Daily Star, but sometimes the Guardian, Independent or Morning Star. Why do I like the Star? Hmm...... -It has light-hearted stories about c-list celeb's and who they're dating and what they're doing/snorting. -I enjoy the way it's written, the use of language often makes me laugh. -I can read it quickly. -It doesn't have much of a political agenda unlike some filthy rags which rub me up the wrong way, such as the Sun and Mail. -I like the photo-stories and frequently fabricated pop-news. With regards the pictures of topless ladeez. Hmmm. They don't really bother me (but then I try not to think about why they're there too much), they're tacky and I tend to skip past pages two and three if I have company. I don't really care if people think I'm stupid so I don't have a problem with buying it. So there it is. In conclusion. If I had more time to read a bigger paper I wouldn't buy the star (as much).

                  I like this I think it is really good and it is a very good idea. I use it all the time and I think that you should get it too. I like this because it works really well, and if you get it you would use it all the time too. I really think that you should go out and buy this now, because you will not know what you are missing unless you buy this. So get off your chair go to the shops and buy it now.

                  Disadvantages

                  For a start, if you're going to buy the Star you've got to know what you're getting into. It's basically a ti*s and ar*e paper... lots of semi-celebs caught by tourists/paparazzi on grainy polaroid shots. If that's your kind of thing, great. Personally I buy it on occasions just for the pure comic value. It's not a newspaper by any means - it's more like a very soft porn magazine. For several months earlier in the year it may as well have renamed itself The Britney Spears Daily. Saying that, there is some worth to it. The sport section isn't at all bad (in fact, it's one of the best among the tabloids, even if it is all rumour) and you usually get a decent centrefold of some random Page 3 Stunnah. The Dear... column is probably the best you'll find, often including hilarious questions such as a boy who was worried sh*tless because his "willy was growing". It's much more entertaining than the Sun's alternative - OK, so the questions are probably made up, but who cares? Strangely there seems to be a fair amount of wrestling coverage, which is cool, and the music/showbiz coverage isn't all that bad. If you want real news, go for another paper, but if you want a bit of both with a laugh thrown in, the Star's OK. It's more entertaining and less sensationalist than the Sun and Mirror respectively.

                  My opinion on the Star newspaper is that it’s a load of rubbish and definitely isn't worth even 30p I purchased this paper a week ago and all it had in it was a few silly articles on one page and on the rest of the pages were rude pictures and articles on celebrities. I'm worried if anyone goes and buy's this paper every morning unless it's to sue the paper for it's uses of fake celebrity picture's. I think if the Star should be a magazine and not a newspaper as newspapers should be used just to tell the news!!!

                  People say The Sun is bad but the Star must be the worst tabloid. Tacky and cheap this is the worst of the bunch! Even thinner than The Sun this is dreadful. There are hardly any proper articles in it. The articles are also very simple. e.g. Man in fight You'd think it was designed to be read by 5 year olds, and people say the suns bad for that. I'd belive nothing I read in the star. By the way we are talking about the national star not the local one round bucks!!?? :)

                  The Daily Star is the perfect paper for someone like me who wants to know the news but doesn't want to read one article for three hours. The Star gives all of the important facts about a story but little else which is brilliant. It dosen't drag on for ages and waste space which can be used for pictures of scantily clad females. Page 3 is an obvious bonus and the new section 'Anna nuvver one' which shows a picture of Anna Kournikova every day is fantastic. Obviously some stories bend the truth but you should know not to believe everything you read, especially in tabloids like The Star. Possibly my favorite section of the paper is the Joke Bloke next to Beau Peep and Clogger. All three are extremely funny.

                  The star is without doubt one cheesy, tacky, tabloid but when compared to the others especially the mirror and the sun its redeeming features shine through, excellent sports coverage, the best dear column out of the tabloids and a higher standard of pictures throughout the paper from front to back. The paper lets itself down by only ever trying to highlight The negative aspects of the world’s news, we know bad news sells but the attitude of the tabloids daily star included to newsworthy issues always takes second place to whichever celeb is cheating/shagging/assaulting/insulting, whoever which is a shame really. If you want to keep up with the gossip and ignore the news buy a tabloid If you want to buy a tabloid buy the star, it's the best of a bad breed

                  No I don’t buy this newspaper to look at the topless models towards the front of this newspaper. The daily star’s coverage of the sports section at the rear of the paper and is excellent reading. At the weekend there is a mega crossword, which is the best crossword in any of our national newspapers. While other papers have the same fantasy football competition the star have changed their competition on a couple of occasions, and who were the first to start fantasy football competitions.

                  i buy the daily star when patels have soled out of the sun and it is a good reed.the biggest problem with the star is there topless birds are mingers with saggy tits and there headlines are not funny like the suns are but they have good racing storeys and sometimes you get celebrities like billie with there jugs out on holiday. the star has good serious storeys like when england got knocked out of euro 2000 and they sed keegan was a turnip. the ball and chain prefers the star cuz she says the horrorscopes are good.

                  I have to admit that from the opinions that I have read so far the English version of the Star is vastly different from it's Irish conterpart. From what I have read the English Star tends to be similar to the Sun and that cannot be good.(See my opinion on the sun!) The Irish Star in the other hand tends to contains a lot of actual news which is unusual for a tabloid of this type ! The sports section is top class and it carries a lot of GAA stories which I find particularily enjoyable. There is even a pullout supplement after the big matches on the weekend. So I suspose that if you happen to visit Ireland get a copy of the Irish star and make your own accessment. I will do the same with the Daily Star the next time I visit England.
