Machine Wrapped With Butter

I'd like to see a tabloid size newspaper with broadsheet content, aimed at people like me, who want intelligent, interesting stories in a brief format. Why isn't there one?

Because it has pictures of nude women on the front, how intellegent is that?

Some of the former broadsheets are now tabloid in shape and size - The Times, and Independent spring to mind.

As for brevity - the problem is an 'intelligent' look at an issue will need to be more in depth and give more background than a knee-jerk rant. Tabloids often excel in taking an issue at first glance and 'telling it how it is' in the eyes of the fabled 'man in the street'. This can be done in a much shorter space than reporting on the background and approaching a story from different angles.
