An anonymous reader writes: A funny research analysed millions of news articles and compared major US and UK newspapers on several factors like how easy it is to read and how many words with sentiment they use. For example, they found that the British tabloid "The Sun" is as easy to read as the children’s program of CBBC, it covers the most stories about women, and at the same time it uses the most linguistically subjective language. The same research found that people love to read about disasters and crimes while they don't really care about finance markets stories. You can read the research and find out where your news sources stand compared to the rest.
