To publish something is to make it available to the public via some medium. Traditionally, this has meant some form of print medium, such as newspapers, magazines, or books, but with the advent of the internet it can simply mean placing material on a web site.[1]

The word is not usually associated with disseminating information on television or radio, due the ephemeral nature of a broadcast; however, recordings of sound or video material are considered to be published.

In the United States, publishers tend to lean left, but

Every major publishing house has a conservative imprint — Penguin Random House has two, Sentinel and Crown Forum — and maintains a stable of right-wing authors who may not attend literary festivals or mingle at the National Book Awards but command a sizable audience in red state America.[2]
