Extra, extra! Read all about it!

Over the past 100 years, the way we get and absorb news has changed at an unparalleled level.

For the most part, it’s safe to say that people like to be informed. After all, knowledge is power, and the more you know, the more you are able to fairly and productively participate in society. Indeed, there is something inherently democratic about the getting, sharing, and spreading of news.

In our constantly-connected and technological world of today, the need for news and information can lead to the danger of believing everything we read or clicking on unreliable links and sources, especially for people who lack tech savvy.

Looking back at the years of traditional print media, however, we are reminded of the headlines and front pages that changed the world. Back at a time when the news wasn’t at our finger tips in any given instant, back when it was up to publishers to inform us what was happening at far corners of the globe, around the country, or even in your own city.
