Newspapers - Assignment Editor

Newspapers

A newspaper is a scheduled publication containing news of current events, informative articles, diverse features, editorial, and classifieds or advertising. It usually is printed on relatively inexpensive, low-grade paper such as newsprint. By 2007, there were 6,580 daily newspapers in the world selling 395 million copies a day. The worldwide recession of 2008, combined with the rapid growth of web-based alternatives, caused a serious decline in advertising and circulation, as many papers closed or sharply retrenched operations.

General-interest newspapers typically publish stories on local and national political events and personalities, crime, business, entertainment, science-tech, society and sports. Most traditional papers also feature an editorial page containing editorials written by an editor and columns that express the personal opinions of writers. Opinions of other writers and readers are expressed in the op-Ed (“opposite the editorial page”) which was generally located on page six and letters to the editors sections of the paper.


A newspaper can be someone’s life companion. A wide variety of material has been published in newspapers, including editorial opinions, criticism, persuasion and op-Eds; obituaries; entertainment features such as crosswords, Sudoku and horoscopes; weather news, technology and forecasts; advice, food, money news and other columns; sports Commentary; reviews of radio, movies, television, plays and restaurants; classified ads; display ads, metro sports, radio and television listings, inserts from local merchants, editorial cartoons, gag cartoons and comic strips. It also contains some polls as well as kitchen goods news and views of the experts.

International newspaper:-
There is also a small group of newspapers which may be characterized as international newspapers. Some, such as The International Herald Tribune, have always had that focus, while others are repackaged national newspapers or “international editions” of national or large metro city newspapers. In some cases articles that might not interest the wider range of readers are omitted from international editions; in others, of interest to expatriates, significant national news is retained.


Online newspaper

Virtually all printed newspapers have online editions, which depending on the country may be regulated by journalism organizations such as the Press Complaints Commission in the UK. But as some publishers find their print-based models increasingly unsustainable, Web-based “newspapers” have also started to appear, such as the Southport Reporter in the UK and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, which stopped publishing in print after 149 years in March 2009 and went online only. Today some online news websites like Google news and New York Now has the largest number of viewers in the online news feed.

The home page of every online newspaper must me interesting and meaningful and above all that it contains the latest updates on news. Some home pages like USA Today Home page, NYDN Home page, NY Post Home Page, LA Times Home Page, NYT Home page, Trib Home page, Wash. Post Home page, WND Home Page and Sun-Times Home page are some example of online newspaper home pages that are truly top of the list because these all news pages gives complete experience of nationline news as well as world news
Newspapers have, in the modern world, played an important role in the exercise of freedom of expression. Whistle-blowers and those who “leak” stories of corruption in political circles often choose to inform newspapers before other mediums of communication, relying on the perceived willingness of newspaper editors to expose the secrets and lies of those who would rather cover them.
