Founded in 1878, the Daily News is the oldest newspaper still publishing. Its success is credited to its mission to feed the community’s demand for news. Each day the paper focuses on bringing all the news that matters most to the community. This approach is the foundation of our weekly online newspaper, News-2-You, and daily Breaking News articles. Both provide students with access to informational text that supports reading standards for understanding, retelling and summarizing events.
The Yale Daily News Historical Archive contains digitized versions of issues from the daily newspaper’s print run, dating back to its founding in 1878. This digital archive is open to the public and was made possible by an anonymous gift from a Yale College alumnus.
A tabloid newspaper is a publication with a smaller page size than traditional newspapers. Tabloid newspapers are primarily used to report sensational news stories such as murders, robberies and accidents. They also report local news and sports news. They often have a celebrity gossip section, classified ads and cartoons. In some cases, they contain political commentary and editorials.
Throughout history, the editorial stance of the Daily News has been described as both liberal and conservative. The News was a staunch Republican newspaper during the 1920s, supporting isolationism in line with its Chicago sister paper, the Tribune. The News has been described as moderately liberal in the 1990s.
Today, the Daily News is owned by Tronc, which acquired it in 2017. The paper competes with New York Post and New York Times for circulation. The newspaper is known for its strong city news coverage, celebrity gossip and extensive use of photographs. It is considered one of the first successful tabloids in the United States.
The newspaper has a number of departments and bureaus across the country. These include a news room in each of the five boroughs, a bureau at the Brooklyn and Queens courthouses, a newsroom at the New York State Assembly building, as well as an office within the One Police Plaza complex in Manhattan. The Daily News has also had a number of radio and television outlets, including WPIX-TV, which is currently located in the same 42nd Street building as the newspaper.
In a city like New York, where the media industry is highly competitive, it is important to have a newspaper that can hold its own against the competition. The Daily News has done this for a long time, but has recently struggled to keep up with its competitors. The Daily News has a wide variety of different sections, but it is most famous for its front-page stories that cover violence and scandal, celebrity gossip, and local news. It is a highly readable and influential newspaper, but it has had a difficult time keeping up with its competitors. The newspaper is still a popular choice among New Yorkers, even with its declining circulation. The News has won several Pulitzer Prizes for its work over the years.
