It is a general assumption that the tabloidized presentation of the news increases the circulation of newspapers and the ratings of television channels. The infiltration of magazine attributes into news bulletins or the tabloidized presentation of even serious news is seen as an essential way of television journalism, particularly by commercial television channels. News concerned on economical, political and social issues have begun to lose gradually their coverage percentage in the tabloid media. Taken this as a starting point, the tabloidization phenomenon of television news is studied on three exemplary cases of three separate lanes of the broadcasting system in Turkey, namely the TRT 2 for public television broadcasting, the NTV for thematic television broadcasting and Show TV for commercial television broadcasting. In this way, the scope of this study was to explore how the continuously debated phenomenon of the “tabloidization of the news” was situating itself in different television broadcasting settings. The objective of the study was to look onto the relationship between the news and the trivial tabloid from a different viewpoint, thus, by attaining some empiric data and adding actual knowledge onto theoretical discussions, we aimed to reveal how the differentation in television channels reflects itself onto the presentation of tabloid news.
