Daily News is a newspaper founded in 1919 and based in Jersey City, New Jersey. It is a subsidiary of Tribune Company and was once the largest circulated daily newspaper in the United States. Its peak circulation was 2.4 million copies a day in 1947. The paper is still published as of 2019.
The Daily News carries sensational coverage of crime, scandal and violence; it also has large and prominent photographs for news, entertainment and sports; classified ads; comics; and an opinion section. It is one of the few tabloids still in print, and a rival to its sister publication, the New York Post.
Its editorial stance is “flexibly centrist” in contrast to its sister newspaper, the Chicago Tribune, which is a staunchly Republican newspaper. Its legacy includes the infamous “Teapot Dome Scandal” and lurid celebrity gossip.
For over five decades, the Daily News espoused conservative populism, and during the 1940s and 1960s it was a member of the so-called “isolationist movement,” which advocated a United States military withdrawal from Europe. In the 1990s, it began to change its stance and become more liberal.
Among other things, the Daily News is known for its “Daily News Building,” a landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood that stands on 450 West 33rd Street, straddling the tracks that lead to Pennsylvania Station. The building is now home to the Associated Press and is one of Manhattan’s oldest landmarks, along with the World Trade Center and the Empire State Building.
The Daily News also produces a newspaper-style digital edition called the E-dition. This interactive version of the newspaper is available for download and provides a more convenient reading experience.
This version of the Daily News has a sleek user interface and offers access to the latest news and features. Its interactive features allow users to quickly swipe between newspaper pages and top stories.
Its remote video sourcing solutions make it possible to source original HD b-roll clips, stand-up live feeds and get professional footage faster than any other news solution. This allows news teams to be able to respond quickly when the news breaks.
