Does anyone know this book?

It's one from Terry Pratchetts' Discworld series that I read years ago, but I can't find it anywhere. Most probably because I can't remember the name of it.
It's about how the main character makes a printing press and starts making the city newspaper. I think it's set in Ankh-Morpork. Theres some other stuff I remember about people sabotaging the press, although I can't remember much else about it.
Does anyone know the name of it?

Discworld is a comedic fantasy book series by the British author Terry Pratchett set on the Discworld, a flat world balanced on the backs of four elephants which are in turn standing on the back of a giant turtle, the Great A'Tuin. The books frequently parody or at least borrow ideas from J. R. R. Tolkien, Robert E. Howard, H. P. Lovecraft, and William Shakespeare, as well as myth, folklore and fairy tales, often using them for satirical parallels with current cultural, technological and scientific issues. More??..
