Newsletter vs. Newspaper

By Jaxson

Main Difference

The main difference between Newsletter and Newspaper is that the Newsletter is a regularly distributed publication and Newspaper is a scheduled publication containing news of events, articles, features, editorials, and advertising

  • Newsletter

    A newsletter is a printed report containing news (information) of the activities of a business (legal name; subscription business model) or an organization (institutions, societies, associations) that is sent by mail regularly to all its members, customers, employees or people, who are interested in. Newsletters generally contain one main topic of interest to its recipients. A newsletter may be considered grey literature. E-newsletters are delivered electronically via e-mail and can be viewed as spamming if e-mail marketing is sent unsolicited.

  • Newspaper

    A newspaper is a periodical publication containing written information about current events and is often typed in black ink with a white or gray background.

    Newspapers can cover a wide variety of fields such as politics, business, sports and art, and often include materials such as opinion columns, weather forecasts, reviews of local services, obituaries, birth notices, crosswords, editorial cartoons, comic strips, and advice columns.

    Most newspapers are businesses, and they pay their expenses with a mixture of subscription revenue, newsstand sales, and advertising revenue. The journalism organizations that publish newspapers are themselves often metonymically called newspapers.

    Newspapers have traditionally been published in print (usually on cheap, low-grade paper called newsprint). However, today most newspapers are also published on websites as online newspapers, and some have even abandoned their print versions entirely.

    Newspapers developed in the 17th century, as information sheets for merchants. By the early 19th century, many cities in Europe, as well as North and South America, published newspapers.

    Some newspapers with high editorial independence, high journalism quality, and large circulation are viewed as newspapers of record.
