    USA Today is a broadsheet, not a tabloid. These words refer primarily to the size/layout.

    Fig 1. Tabloids https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabloi...spaper_format)
    Fig 2. USA Today - a broadsheet https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USA_Today



    I don't know if you can call a broadsheet which engages in tabloid journalism a tabloid. I wouldn't.

    "Tabloid" has a pejorative sense mostly. USA Today is neither a tabloid in size or in journalistic philosophy.
