Newspapers have long been an informative and popular form of media. Whilst other forms of media now also deliver news, entertainment and current affairs, sales of newspapers have held up remarkably well. Newspapers are still relied on as current, portable and fairly reputable sources of information and entertainment. The daily paper remains a powerful and widely-used cultural icon.
