The term “press” is derived from the printing press used during the age of analogue printing technology and was originally used to refer to the full canon of distributed print material, which included leaflets, newspapers, magazines, books or advertising posters. Today, “press” is a collective term for all newspapers and magazines appearing in any format as well as the associated news and commentary channels. When preceding words such as work, officer or conference, “press” also extends to all mass media, including radio, television and internet.
