Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News was the first tabloid newspaper in the United States. As the newspaper’s editorial stance was described by the New York Times, it was “high-minded and tolerant of a variety of political perspectives.” The Daily News was also one of the first newspapers in the country to use the Associated Press wire photo service.
In addition to its strong local coverage, the Daily News was also a leader in sports coverage. By the early 1930s, the paper had a circulation of 1.5 million. The paper was the largest newspaper in the nation until the New York Post overtook it in 1930. Its coverage of World War II included support for isolationism, a tactic that was opposed by many conservatives. In 1947, the Daily News reached its highest circulation level of 2.4 million copies a day. By the 1970s, the newspaper began to shift its editorial position. The newspaper became more liberal, becoming a moderate alternative to the right-wing newspaper, the Post.
The Daily News began to use cartoons, lurid photographs, and sensational crime coverage to attract readers. It is credited with giving voice to the voiceless, especially those afflicted with crime. The Daily News has won 11 Pulitzer Prizes. As the newspaper has changed over the years, the mission of the paper has remained to chronicle life in New York. The Daily News is still a top-selling newspaper, having sold more than 200,000 copies each day in 2016.
