1.8.2 Community Newspapers by Linguistic Group
Why is this important?
Newspapers have long been a cornerstone of civic vitality: they let us know about our world, region and community and they connect us with area events and neighborhood happenings in a timely manner.  Newspapers of all sizes and substance—ranging from national to city news, neighborhood and community-based to language or interest-focused—bond individuals and bridge communities through the sharing of mutually-important information. With major newspapers losing circulation and consumers turning to the Internet, pod casts and other technology for news, local newspapers and bulletins help keep communities connected and information accessible
How are we doing?

Boston maintains a strong community-based newspaper system with more than 70 special interest services.  Of those, 24 are ethnic papers making the news available in just as many languages; 28 are neighborhood papers that keep residents up-to-date on the issues pertinent to the community.  Boston also has many free entertainment news magazines and special interest bulletins to keep people connected.  Click here for a complete list of Boston community newspapers from Boston Online or click here for the complete New England Media Directory provided by the Ethnic Media Project at UMass-Boston.
