The newspapers can play a very vital role in the reconstruction and regeneration of a nation by highlighting and pin-pointing the social, economic and moral evils in the society. Can be helpful in eradicating these evils from the society. They can also start propaganda against the economic evils like short-weights and measures, smuggling. Black-marketing income tax evasion hoarding corruption and bribery. THUS the newspapers can help greatly in the nation- building activities.

Newspapers provide some material for every type of interest. They give us stories, the crossword puzzles, the post page, the expert's comments on certain affairs of national and international importance. Some pages are meant for women and children as well.
Newspapers also provide us information about various matters and things through advertisements. They can help the advertisers to boost up their sale and the consumers to consume the new goods.

In other words, newspapers provide a wholesome intellectual food, trade contacts and also job opportunities. It is through the newspapers, many a time that marriages are arranged, and lost things are found. People pay homage to their dead relatives through the obituary notes in the newspapers.

One of the first positive effects I can think of at the moment, is probably that mass media keeps people informed of any recent events within a short amount of time. When, for example, a politician is assassinated, you will hear this immediately, so that you will know what is going on. Media keeps you informed.

Newspaper is very important in our lives and it is the most common form of printed media. Newspaper gives the information related to all fields of life. Individuals who routinely study the newspapers cannot spend their one day without newspaper. People can keep themselves updated from all of the important news of the world. Another impact which newspapers bring to us is the exposure of the people to the news which should not be made openly. This can cause disturbance among the people. This is the requirement of the media to publish rumors and hot gossips therefore, newspapers can also misguide the people. In conclusion, I would like to say that newspapers can have both the positive and negative impacts on our lives.

I think the main problem with newspapers and news in general is that they focus on the sensational and the tragic, and give little credence to the positive things that go on in this world.

Positives of a newspaper are widespread.

People can improve their reading, writing, and communication skills because of newspapers and the opportunities they provide.

Newspapers originated as a watchdog to our government, in fact, Thomas Jefferson once stated that "…were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.”

Negatives of newspapers are few--but if printed they do cost money and paper, made from trees.
