September 25, 2012 No Comments »

WASHINGTON, Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Following is the daily “Profile America” feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:



Profile America — Tuesday, September 25th. Three important dates in American newspaper history occurred in September — spanning more than 200 years.  On September 15, 1982, USA Today began publishing. Critics at the time said the idea of a national newspaper was doomed to failure — now, USA Today is one of the country's largest selling dailies.  On September 18, 1851, the New York Times issued its first edition. And, on this date in 1690, the first newspaper in America was published for one day in Boston before being shut down by British authorities unhappy with its content. There are almost 1,400 daily newspapers published across the nation. Of these, over 900 have Sunday editions. You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau, online at
