Why is the language used in tabloids different from the language used in broadsheet newspapers?

Please help me! I need it for my research paper.

    Because tabloids use sensationalized language to tell you a story. They are not too concerned with the storoes validity or their sources credibility. SO they use words like "rumored and alleged" in a story while trying to convince you the story is indeed fact...They use adjectives designed to get your attention...The language of fact sounds less interesting.

    well for your research paper you're suppose to document your findings and I know that ours are not published works of art. but here goes:

    Their standard of information is not as high as broadsheet newspapers so with lower standards they have a lower grade of reading levels.

    sometimes their reading audience may have a lower intellegent level.

    Tabloids try to sound working class,

    Broadsheets sound like who they are by and for,
