Daily News RSS Feeds

The Daily News is a daily tabloid newspaper published in New York City. The newspaper is known for its intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, a strong sports section (focusing on the Yankees, Mets and Giants), and a wide variety of opinion pieces and columnists. In addition, the paper has a well-known political blog and is often referred to as “the voice of New York.”

Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson, who was also publisher of the Chicago Tribune, the newspaper was the first successful tabloid publication in the United States. The Daily News gained a strong following with sensational news of crime, scandal and violence, lurid photographs and other entertainment features. In the 1920s, it was one of America’s largest newspapers and reached its peak circulation in 1947, with 2.4 million copies a day.

In 1975, the Daily News rolled out what became one of its most famous headlines in its history: “FORD TO CITY: DROP DEAD” — an editorial response to President Gerald Ford’s speech vetoing a bankruptcy bailout for New York City. The News had been a staunch Republican publication, but it began to shift toward a more flexibly centrist stance that is evident to this day.

In the mid-1990s, media mogul Mort Zuckerman bought the newspaper and tried to revive it as a “serious tabloid”. In an attempt to compete with USA Today, which had become the biggest daily newspaper in the country, the Daily News invested $60 million in color presses, giving it the ability to match the visual quality of USA Today. Zuckerman’s efforts were stymied in large part by a five-month strike by the newspaper’s ten unions.
