Press is the collective designation of media vehicles that carry out journalism and other functions of informative communication – in contrast to pure propaganda or entertainment communication.

The term press derives from the mobile press, a graphics process perfected by Johannes Gutenberg in the fifteenth century and which, from the eighteenth century, was used to print newspapers, then the only existing journalistic vehicles. From the middle of the 20th century onwards, newspapers also began to be broadcast and broadcast ( radio news and television news ) and, with the advent of the World Wide Web, also came online newspapers, or cyberjournalist, or webjornalist. The term “press”, however, was maintained.
