The Daily News

Daily News

Founded in 1919, Daily News is the world’s first tabloid newspaper. Now owned by tronc, the Daily News has become one of America’s most read newspapers. Its journalists are known for scouring the world to bring you the best in politics, sports, entertainment and more. Get the latest New York City and national news, as well as local sports coverage. Daily News is also the home to the Yankees, Mets and Giants.

Aside from its regular sections, the Daily News features large and prominent photographs, titillating and sensational stories and celebrity gossip, classified ads, and comics. It has also been a leading source of news in the United States about the Middle East and other international topics.

The newspaper has a reputation for defending the rights of its readers, particularly those who are often ignored by other publications. For this reason, it has won many awards over the years, including a Pulitzer Prize in 1996 for E.R. Shipp’s pieces on race and welfare issues, and in 1998 for Mike McAlary’s cover story about police brutality against Haitian immigrant Abner Louima.

In the 1930s, the newspaper was an early user of Associated Press wirephoto service and developed a huge staff of photographers. The Daily News was also an important source of news about the sex scandals that dominated popular culture at that time, such as the Teapot Dome Scandal and Wallis Simpson’s romance with King Edward VIII, which led to his abdication.

At the turn of the 21st century, the Daily News struggled to compete with its even more sensational rival tabloid, The New York Post. The Daily News reached its peak in circulation in the mid-20th century and was one of the most widely read papers in the country. However, by the 1990s, the newspaper was losing money because of its yielding to union demands on rules and job numbers. Its parent company, the Tribune Company, put it up for sale, but no buyer was willing to pay the price.

Today, the Daily News is a well-read and respected daily with a loyal following of more than 3.5 million people. The paper has a broad appeal because of its liberal to moderate political leanings, in contrast to its right-wing competitor, the New York Post. The News also has a strong emphasis on covering social, cultural and ethnic issues in the city. The News is published Monday through Friday during the Yale academic year, and it also publishes several special editions each year, such as the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue and the Commencement Issue. It is the oldest college daily newspaper in the country and is entirely independent of Yale University. It has a long history of supporting Yale’s community centers and affiliated student groups. Its editorially independent board of trustees is composed of distinguished alumni and former editors-in-chief of major metropolitan newspapers and includes leaders of the Yale community. It has won numerous awards over the years, including the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary.
