To begin, newspapers are vital for the Fourth Estate which means that newspapers are the check to the checks and balances of government. The past decade has not been a very good time for newspapers, as they have been caught in the digital revolution. More and more newspapers are shutting down because of online competition, drop in ad revenue, declining circulation among young readers, and the hunger for the fastest news, 24/7. Newspapers and their effect on society are indispensable. Newspapers, staffed by hard-working, truth-seeking reporters who aren’t afraid of doing whatever it takes to bring justice, earned the title “Fourth Estate” for a good reason.
