Passage 1
How Newspapers Developed
The first newspapers were handwritten sheets which were posted in public places. The earliest recorded newspaper was started in Rome in 59 B. C. In the 700's, the world's first printed newspaper was developed in China. The paper was printed from carved wooden blocks and distributed among the citizens. Europe didn't have a regularly published newspaper until 1609, when one was started in Germany.
The first regularly published newspaper in the English language was print- ed in Amsterdam in 1620. In 1621, an English newspaper was started in Lon- don and was published weekly. The first daily English newspaper was the Daily Courant (current), which didn't appear until March 1702.
In 1690, Benjamia Harris printed the first American newspaper in Boston. The paper was called Publick (public) Occurrences2, both Forreign (foreign) and Domestick (domestic). The local government, however, didn't approve of the paper and stopped its publication after the first issue, In 1704, John Camp- bell started The Boston Newsletter, the first newspaper to be published daily in the American colonies. By 1760, the colonies had more than thirty daily news- papers. There are now about 1,800 daily papers in the United States.
Today, as a group, English language newspapers have the largest circulation3 in the world. The largest circulation for an individual newspaper, however, is that of the Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun, which sells more than eleven million copies every day.
