Search for Newspaper Articles

Newspapers cover current events and contain both descriptive news stories and editorials on current events. Newspaper articles are reported by professional journalists who do considerable research and interview the people involved for each story. News reports are fact-checked for accuracy by editorial staff.

Newspapers provide:

  • Coverage of current events
  • Eyewitness accounts of an event
  • In-depth coverage of local issues
  • The public's reaction to a specific event or issue
