I think the major disadvantage of newspapers is that even though they bring us news, they can often be biased as the reporter or analyst also presents his/her view of the situation. There are many people who just believe these views and as a result they reduce the ability of the readers to analyze the situation by themselves. Many news papers can be politically inclined or controlled by the government in some countries and these newspapers just transmit the good things and hide the adverse aspects. Another thing that can be a disadvantage of reading newspapers is that they are becoming more and more commercial based. They have started to give more and more space to the advertisements which is not the primary purpose of a newspaper.

Finally, in today’s fast world, the news is transmitted using many other faster mediums than newspapers like internet and every one with a camera in their cell phone is a potential reporter for these sources. On the other hand newspaper involves a time lag between the event and its publishing.

By the time they get the new's printed its old and yesterdays new's. Most of the articles printed so fast they don't get the true story straight. On television you can get the new's sometimes while it is still happening.

Opponents of reading the newspaper claim that readers may not read the section that people advertised in, or they may simply have skipped the page or the article since it contained little or nothing else of interest. In addiction, people who's creating and making the newspaper are destroying our natural resources cutting down more trees to make productions. Furthermore, the advertisement of the newspaper sometimes give wrong information about a biography of a person or personal information.

Some people may still maintain that reading the newspaper is a waisting time in not interested good stuff or any advertisement. However, we need to be informed on what is happening in the world around us and to keep us advertised about special offers that can benefits us for not been spending a lot of money in expensive stuff.

Newspapers often have a political bias and give a slanted version of current events. For centuries papers have been the way people have learned about events taking place in other parts of the country or even the world. TV and the internet have become the true windows on the world.

Similar to every other advertising standard, newspapers also have disadvantages. The most tricky issues in newspapers are that they have a very short life duration, people tend to read newspapers quickly and once. The normal life span of a daily newspaper is only 24 hours, so the life span of the as is limited.
Generally newspapers are messy with commercials, mainly or supermarket advertising days on Sundays, when information excess reduces the effect of any single advertisement. Even supplemental benefits are so bulky that they signify extra newspaper clutter.
Even if newspapers have extensive market coverage's, certain market groups are not regular readers. For example, newspapers conventionally have no reached a large part of the less than 20 age group. The same is true of the aged and those speaking a foreign language for national advertisers because of cost and the fact that there are few national newspapers.
Newspapers undergo from the same restriction shared by all print media. Certain products should not be advertised in newspapers, such as those that require display. Also products that consumers do not expect to find advertised in newspapers, such as qualified services and trade people might be easily unseen.
The incredible growth of metropolitan areas has made it difficult for newspapers to supply one of their main benefits on time delivery.
