The Daily News
The Daily News, a tabloid newspaper published in New York City, is one of the oldest and most successful newspapers in the United States. It was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson, and became known for lurid photographs, sensational crime and scandal stories, and cartoons, and eventually reached its peak circulation of 2.4 million copies a day.
The daily tabloid began as a primarily local paper in the New York City area, but has expanded to cover national and international events and stories. Its coverage includes news, opinion, sports, classified ads, and celebrity gossip. It also includes comics, entertainment and a section for children. The Daily News is owned by the New York Times Company and published from offices in Manhattan, Jersey City and Brooklyn.
Its name comes from the paper’s slogan: “Daily News, Bringing you New York, America and the World.”
