For the Week Two Print-Media Evolution Timeline assignment:
Select 1 existing or defunct magazine or newspaper, and research its history.
Magazines cover a wide variety of interests or might focus a particular interest. For example, business news magazines such as Bloomberg Businessweek and Newsweek typically cover current events, politics, entertainment, art, music, a wide variety of interests. Magazines such as People Magazine and Sports Illustrated will focus on specific areas of interest, but the articles that are published are geared toward the casual reader. Magazines typically publish monthly or more frequently.
Newspapers typically report news on a vast variety of topics. For example, business to science to art and sports. Newspapers published in localities will typically have a section that provides national and international news coverage and additional sections that focus on local news and local interests. Newspapers can be published daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or just on weekends. Major national and regional newspapers typically publish daily, with more in-depth coverage on weekends.
