How the world of "news" has changed

"The first American paper, Benjamin Harris's Publick Occurrences Both Forreign and Domestick, committed to appearing only once a month - or 'oftener if any Glut of Occurrences happen.'" 
- cited in Vicious Cycles: Theses on a philosophy of news, Harper's, January 2020

  1. That paper has its own Wikipedia page.

    "The first edition was published September 25, 1690...No second edition was printed because the paper was shut down by the Colonial government on September 29, 1690..."
