National Newspaper Week

“When the public’s right to know is threatened, and when the rights of free speech and free press are at risk, all of the other liberties we hold dear are endangered.” – Christopher Dodd

If the past few years have taught us anything, it is that freedom of the press is more important now than ever.

This week, newspapers around the country – including The Telegraph – observe National Newspaper Week.

It’s not only a time to look to the past and the role in which newspapers have played in shaping our great nation, but it also is a time to look to the future and how newspapers remain relevant in communities large and small.

Newspapers are watchdogs, chroniclers of history and are there to serve and educate the citizenry. Newspapers, indeed, have a significant role to play in our future.
