    What Is a Newspaper?

    Newspaper
    "publication usually issued daily, weekly, or at other regular times that provides news, views, features, and other information of public interest and that often carries advertising."
    Encyclopedia Britannica: http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/413113/newspaper

    Newspaper Publishing
    "Newspapers can be published daily or weekly, in the morning or in the afternoon; they may be published for the few hundred inhabitants of a small town, for a whole country, or even for an international audience. A newspaper differs from other forms of publication in its immediacy, characteristic headlines, and coverage of a miscellany of topical issues and events."

    "The daily newspaper is essentially the product of an industrialized society. In its independent form, the newspaper is usually integral to the development of democracy. The newspaper thus defined was fairly late in emerging, since it depended on a certain basic freedom of speech and relatively widespread literacy."
    Encyclopedia Britannica http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/482597/history-of-publishing/28655/Newspaper-publishing?anchor=ref398160
