The USA Today vies with The Wall Street Journal for the position of having the widest circulation of any newspaper in the United States.
ü The Journal primarily covers U.S. and international business, and financial news and issues. Its name derives from Wall Street in New York City, the heart of the financial district; It has won the Pulitzer Prize thirty-three times.
USA Today is also a daily newspaper.
ü A colorful newspaper with national distribution was considered to be a risk, and the paper received early criticism, receiving the nickname “McPaper“.
ü It is owned by The New York Times Company, which makes 15 other newspapers.
ü The Times is third in circulation behind The Wall Street Journal and USA Today, and yet remains the largest metropolitan local newspaper in the United States.
ü It is sometimes called “The Gray Lady”—named for its staid appearance and style.
ü The paper’s motto is “All the News That’s Fit to Print”. Its web site is the most popular American online newspaper Web site.
A student newspaper is a newspaper run by students of a university, high school, middle school, or other school. These papers traditionally cover local and, primarily, school or university news. Working for one’s high school newspaper is sometimes an extracurricular activity, but often, journalism classes are offered. Journalism students learn about the journalistic profession and also produce the paper. Some schools have a basic class in which students only learn about newspapers, and a class that produces the newspaper.
