Tabloids are newspapers that practice sensationalist journalism, while reporting on trivial events that happen in the lives of celebrities. They are known to make false claims in order to get sales, which has resulted in libel lawsuits from celebrities.

Originally, the term "tabloid" referred primarily to the size of the pages of the newspapers, which was about half the usual size (broadsheet), but the tendency of such publications to appeal to a mass audience with short, sensational stories and copious illustrations and, later, photographs led to its current connotation.

Many tabloids contain a liberal viewpoint and glorification of Hollywood values.
