2016 Newspaper Headlines

The year 2016 can be described as a year of change. For better or worse, there were some worldwide events that had such a huge impact, they were unavoidable when reading a 2016 newspaper. It is difficult to forget what happened in 2016: from the shocking news that the United Kingdom had voted to leave the European Union, to the astounding election of Donald Trump as President of the United States – 2016 is a year that will go down in history. The world mourned after the Islamic State opened fire in a Florida nightclub, killing 49 people, shortly after videos and news reports of ‘Harambe’ went viral when the gorilla was shot dead as a child fell into his zoo enclosure.

Some 2016 events will be remembered for being uplifting – the Rio Olympics were held in the summer of 2016, as well as the retirement of Michael Phelps who became the world’s most decorated Olympian. In October James Charles became the first male face of ‘CoverGirl’ makeup. An original newspaper is the best way to learn more about any of these events, or the events listed in our breakdown below.
