17 DAYS: THE STORY OF NEWSPAPER IN THE MAKING (Color, 1945, 16:33)
Remember that famous movie clip of New York City's Mayor LaGuardia reading the Dick Tracy comic strip to kids during a newspaper strike? That was both filmed and broadast on WNYC radio on July 8, 1945, and here it is, right from the source it came from: this film promotional film sponsored by the New York Daily News on the Big Apple's 1945 newspaper delivery driver strike, and the extraordinary lengths people would go to get their newspapers. A film that seeks to demonstrate the importance of newspapers in everyday life. The 1945 New York City Newspaper Deliverymen Strike (July 1 - July 17, 1045) lasted for seventeen days in the summer of 1945. There was no news delivery service operating in New York City, and it was hard to get a newspaper. The 1945 New York City Newspaper Deliverymen Strike walkout had been called for midnight on June 30, a Saturday night. Apparently many of the disgruntled workers couldn’t wait. According to the New York Times, something like a thousand men who were due to work that afternoon failed to report for duty. Some had called in sick. Many more just didn’t show up. The Times sarcastically reported three hundred deliverymen “struck by the epidemic.” All told, fourteen major papers were left without their usual means of distribution. According to an estimate in the New York Times, some 13 million customers in the city and surrounding area were deprived of their daily 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.
