The Daily News

Founded in 1919, the Daily News was the first tabloid newspaper in the United States. The paper grew to have the highest circulation of any daily newspaper in the world at one time, and its headlines, lurid photographs and cartoons helped make it famous. Today, the newspaper is part of Tribune Publishing Company and is headquartered in New York City. The newspaper is also known for its controversial coverage of the sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests in the Archdiocese of New York.

The Daily News is a liberal-leaning newspaper that leans slightly more to the left than its rival, the New York Times. The News is known for its sensational stories, but it has also won praise for its excellent investigative journalism and its ability to expose wrongdoing by public figures. It was the first paper in the country to use a photographic negative, and it pioneered the use of wire photo services. In addition to its extensive coverage of crime and scandal, the Daily News has long been a major source for entertainment news, including celebrities and Broadway shows.

While the News is a major source for local news, it has not always been successful in competing with its bigger competitor, the New York Post. In fact, the News has lost readership in most categories since the 1970s. Today the Daily News has a circulation of around 200,000 copies per day, significantly less than its peak in 1947.

As of 2020, the Daily News was undergoing a transition to a digital format. While this has helped the News reduce costs, it has also made the paper much less effective in covering important local news, such as crime and traffic accidents. In addition, the website is often difficult to navigate and slow to load. The News has also been criticized for its editorial stance, which has often been viewed as biased against Republicans.

In the 1940s, the Daily News leaned right and supported isolationism, and in the 1960s it espoused conservative populism. In the 1990s, however, it began shifting to a moderately liberal position and has become more competitive with the Post, which leans more to the right.

The Yale Daily News is published every weekday when classes are in session. The paper has been in publication for more than 130 years, and many former students have gone on to careers in journalism and other fields.
