The News of the World is a national tabloid "red top" newspaper published in the United Kingdom every Sunday. It is published by News Group Newspapers of News International, a subsidiary of Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, and is the Sunday sister paper of The Sun. The newspaper concentrates on celebrity-based scoops and populist news. Its fondness for sex scandals gained it the nicknames "News of the Screws" and "Screws of the World". It also has a reputation for exposing celebrities as drug users or criminals and setting up insiders and journalists in disguise to provide either video or photographic evidence. The News of the World is by far and away the UK's largest selling Sunday newspaper. Profile extracted from Wikipedia and used under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License.
