The Daily Sport
The Daily Sport is a tabloid newspaper published in the United Kingdom by Sport Newspapers . The content of the newspaper is largely soft pornography. Its Sunday edition is called The Sunday Sport and was the first edition to be published, starting in the 1980s.
The Sunday Sport, in its original incarnation, was more akin to the US papers the National Enquirer and the Weekly World News, carrying spoof stories (most famously World War II bomber found on Moon — followed up the next week with World War II bomber found on Moon disappears), supplemented by glamour photography and heavy sport coverage. The concept of taking the tabloid editorial style to its extreme was novel to the UK market and was initially successful, however sales diminished and the paper dropped the satirical content in favour of pornography. The success of this move led to daily editions being published.
