WORLD’S GREATEST NEWSPAPERS

Print media has been the most influential tool throughout its history. Newspaper is the most widely used form of print media. Newspaper has been playing very important role in economics, politics, education and social structure of nations since its inception.   According to Wikipedia, “A newspaper is a scheduled publication containing news of current events, informative articles, diverse features, editorials, and advertising.”

The reason for the popularity of newspaper among the masses is its inexpensiveness. It is usually printed on ordinary paper due to which it costs very low, making it affordable for everyone.  Several news agencies publish newspapers on daily, weekly and monthly basis. Some newspapers are even published twice a day. The frequency of newspapers publication is usually determined by their circulation or news agency’s policy.


In earlier days, newspapers were very simple, containing news of great significance and very primitive form of advertisement. Now, they have evolved to well organize format, full of lively graphics and news pertaining to politics, business, education, showbiz, ads, public opinions etc.
