If you are looking to do some newspaper research on your ancestors, The Ancestor Hunt Blog is worth checking out. It give you a list (recently updated) of free online newspapers organized by state. Once you select a state, you will see an categorical list of papers from that state and the dates of publication of the newspapers. Another hot link then takes you eventually to a page where you can view the paper itself.
Many of the links take you to the Library of Congress "Chronicling America" newspaper collection, but there are many other categories and links as well.
