Explanation:
The usage seems to be about the same in the US and the UK. "press" is of course often associated with translations from the German and other languages."newspaper and magazine" seems to be somewhat favored with thie industry (and I like it). Products also include linked products (gifts, toys and CDs/CD-Roms)
