This News icon is made in Material Design style developed by Google. This style is based on extremely simplified shapes, thin two-pixel lines, and is optimized for 24x24 px. Unlike other vector icon packs that have merely hundreds of icons, this icon pack contains 4,400 icons, all in the same style and quality.
It square with the back end folded over twice. The front looks like news print on a long sheet with the whole thing folded in thirds. It basically looks like a folded up newspaper that's ready to be tossed on a porch.
We've received the idea on December 24, 2011 and created the icons on January 22, 2012

A news article, outlining your great achievements in life. Of course, if those achievements were real, you wouldn't need all the attention that comes with a news article.

Castro is going capitalist, yeah right!
