Chloephobia (from Greek kleos, "rumour" or "report") is the fear of newspapers, a branch of papyrophobia, fear of paper. People suffering chloephobia would not look at or even touch a newspaper. Many sufferers would hate the smell of newspapers, so these sufferers would stay away from newsstands and people who are holding/carrying newspapers. Chloephobia is a new phobia term, used in proper sources since at least May 2013.
