The Daily News is an American morning daily tabloid newspaper founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News and later renamed the New York Daily News. The paper became the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States and reached its peak circulation in 1947 at 2.4 million copies per day. The newspaper remains in existence today, though its circulation is much less than it was at its peak.
The current daily edition of the paper focuses on intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics, sports and an opinion section. The newspaper also has a large number of photographs. The newspaper has a long history of controversy and was known for its sensationalism and political activism.
In the 20th century, the News shifted its editorial stance from one of conservatism to one of liberal populism. It fought a constant circulation battle with its rival tabloid, the New York Post. The News is owned by Mortimer Zuckerman.
The daily paper has its own television and radio stations in addition to its website and is also distributed in print at local businesses, within subway cars, at City Hall and inside One Police Plaza, as well as at various state and federal courthouses. It is also the parent company of WPIX, Channel 11 on TV and the Radio station of the same name.
Daily News is available online with a subscription, including the E-dition, a digital replica of the newspaper that can be viewed on computers and tablets. The E-dition features interactive tools to enhance your reading experience.
