News papers are a common sight in the United States of America. They are published daily or weekly, and contain news about what's going on in America and sometimes overseas. The newspaper industry is currently on the decline, because of the influence of television news programs like Fox News.
Newspapers do have one advantage over news channels that have helped them stay afloat: there is no way to send comics over the airwaves. Therefore, newspapers make money by publishing comic strips like "For Better Or For Worse", "Mallard Fillmore", and the popular "Mutts".
