Although old news in many media-environments, tabloids are still
new news in South Africa. The introduction of this media
phenomenon created many opportunities. The question is whether
they will be fulfilled or whether they will be missed opportunities.
For the moment, it seems it is still frontier country, almost the
Wild, Wild West, where everything goes. This article analyses this
phenomenon by drawing on the title of the well-known Western,
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. It tries to answer what is good
about this new genre in print media, what can be described as
bad, and what aspects can only be described as ugly.
