A local newspaper is a news publication having news articles and advertisements from the perspective catering to a local area. These are printed at one place and different distribution sources are used to distribute them over a relatively wide surrounding area. It contains news not only from the local area but from around the globe. The news is even presents from the local area's point of view. However, one must understand that other than local, only global and important news are covered in a local newspaper and it is impossible to publish all the news available from all parts of the world.
Generally, poor quality paper is used in newspaper publication and in accordance with one estimate there are around 7000 daily newspaper publications around the globe, each having its own point of view on an event and they send out around 400 million copies in a day.
Looking at the numbers, one can easily conclude that by reading his local newspaper only, one is reaching to a conclusion by simply going through the point of view of just one publication. Also, he is certainly not getting all the information or news of all events happening in the world but only a small part of it through the local newspaper.
Apart from the newspaper, other news media have also taken over the world by storm. Newspaper still make up for a majority of news media but others are catching up really fast. Television and radio are other two popular news media. However there are only a few news channels that truly cater to the entire globe.
Online news is another media that has started to attract a number of people from around the globe. One can easily visit the website and can go through the news. These are updated on a regular basis and their popularity is certainly on a rise.
However, these are all based on the point of view of people they locally cater to. One reaches to a conclusion just by going through one point of view. Also, an important point to understand here is that one can not go on spending money and wasting time and paper in buying different news publications in order to understand their point of view and reach to a conclusion.
Would not it be really wonderful if one can go to a newspaper directory having categories as per different areas of the world, further subdivided into countries and going up to local areas? The directory would contain newspapers, online news portals and magazines categorized in accordance to the area where they cater to. One can simply go to the directory and read different news published around the globe and reach to a conclusion after understanding their point of view on an event.
