The Daily News

Daily News

Daily News is a New York-based newspaper that covers politics, business, sports and culture. It is known for its unbiased content and is a trusted source of breaking news. The newspaper also has an excellent opinion section. The paper is available online and in print. The newspaper has a strong international presence and is one of the most widely read newspapers in the United States. It is the fifth most read newspaper in the world.

In the 1920s, the Daily News found abundant subject matter, like other popular dailies of the time, emphasizing political wrongdoing such as the Teapot Dome Scandal and social intrigue such as Wallis Simpson’s romance with King Edward VIII that led to his abdication. It also emphasized photography, becoming an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service in the 1930s and developing a large staff of photographers.

The paper’s circulation reached 2.4 million by 1947, and its editorial staff was considered to be the best in the nation. In addition to the main daily paper, the News published a Sunday edition, The New York Times on Sunday, and several weeklies. The Daily News also had a radio station, WPIX, whose call letters came from the News’ nickname as “New York’s Picture Newspaper”.

As the newspaper struggled to maintain profitability in the 1980s, it yielded to union demands on rules, job numbers and overtime. Eventually the News was losing $1 million a month. In 1982 the newspaper’s parent, the Tribune Company, put it up for sale. Closing the paper was also considered, but that was deemed too costly due to severance pay and pensions for its workforce.

In the 1990s, the News began to focus on local stories. The paper’s new editors, including Pete Hamill and Debby Krenek, developed a reputation for fighting to protect the First Amendment as well as the rights of New York City residents, especially those who were disadvantaged by government policies. The News won a Pulitzer Prize in 1996 for E.R. Shipp’s pieces on race and welfare issues, and again in 1998 for Mike McAlary’s coverage of police brutality against Haitian immigrant Abner Louima.

In addition to the main daily newspaper, the Yale Daily News publishes a number of special issues each year including the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue, Commencement Issue and First Year Issue. It also sponsors several special events each year celebrating the diversity of the community and works in collaboration with Yale’s cultural centers to produce issues that celebrate the voices of Black, Hispanic, Asian and Latino students and faculty.
