The New York Daily News

Daily News

A newspaper is a publication printed on paper and issued periodically, usually daily or weekly. A newspaper may contain news, opinion (called editorials), advertising, and other material. Its main functions are to convey information and opinion to the public. Traditionally, most newspapers have four major departments: editing, production/printing, circulation, and advertising. However, in large newspapers, additional specialized departments, such as news or sports departments, exist. Newspapers are most often published in print but are also available on the Internet.

The New York Daily News is a tabloid newspaper founded in 1919. It was the first large-circulation tabloid in the United States and attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal, and violence as well as lurid photographs. The paper also emphasized political wrongdoing, such as the Teapot Dome Scandal, and social intrigue, such as Wallis Simpson’s romance with King Edward VIII, which led to his abdication. The News was the first major newspaper to use Associated Press wirephotography and had a staff of photographers.

It was purchased in 1993 by the real estate developer Mortimer B. Zuckerman, who took the newspaper to financial success. Its resurgence in the 1990s was due to its coverage of urban affairs, a focus that earned it several Pulitzer Prizes. In 2017, the News was sold to Tribune Publishing, now known as Tronc, for $1.

In addition to the Daily News, Yale publishes a Monday–Friday supplement called WEEKEND, the Yale Daily News Magazine and several special issues each year such as the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue and Commencement Issue. It also hosts a series of community events during the school year in collaboration with Yale’s cultural centers and affiliated student groups to promote dialogue on topics such as mental health, diversity, and sexual assault.

While the Daily News is a very successful news organization, it has suffered from declining readership in recent years, due in part to the popularity of the digital edition and the proliferation of online-only publications. The paper’s digital version has a simple user interface and provides its readers with the latest in interactive features.

The New York Daily News has a AllSides Media Bias Rating of Left, which indicates that the paper leans toward liberal thought and/or policy agendas. It is a great choice for those interested in reading a highly opinionated newspaper with a variety of viewpoints on current events and political debate.
