This chapter considers the news revolution of the 1620s and its impact on Parliament. News began spreading more widely and rapidly than before as Parliament moved toward the center stage of domestic policies, and disputes between the governing class and the Crown dominated the parliamentary agenda. This is reflected not only in the rise of parliamentary diaries but also in the availability of separates relating to Parliament and the concentration, scope, and frequency of newsletters and information concerning activities in Westminster Palace. In the same way that the Thirty Years' War drove the embryonic newspaper industry, so Parliament provided the raw material of the manuscript political letter.
