Death of the Daily News

Daily News

The Daily News is a tabloid newspaper published in New York City. It is known for sensational headlines, local news coverage and entertainment content, and has a liberal editorial perspective. The paper was founded in 1919 and was the first successful tabloid newspaper in America. Its success paved the way for many other tabloid newspapers in the United States and around the world, most of which have now shut down or been acquired by more mainstream newspapers.

The paper is not to be confused with the earlier New York Daily News, a daily newspaper that was published between 1855 and 1906. Today’s Daily News is a free newspaper and has the largest circulation of any daily newspaper in the United States.

Its early history was marked by controversy, ranging from accusations of political corruption to the scandal over Wallis Simpson’s relationship with King Edward VIII that led to her abdication. It was also one of the first newspapers to use a large staff of photographers. In 1929 the newspaper moved to its current location on 42nd Street, a historic building designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood, which was later used as the model for the Daily Planet building in the Superman movies.

While analyzing the videos, researchers looked for several key factors, including whether the video was a news story or a promotional piece, and what topics were discussed. They found that almost all channels studied (89%) posted videos about events and public affairs, while only 11% were devoted to personal or celebrity content. The remaining 21% of channels focused on a specific subject matter, often with the goal of promoting a particular point of view or a political ideology.

Among the most popular topics were Trump and his administration (28% of the videos), global news events (3%) and domestic issues (11%). The vast majority of these videos — more than 95% — were created by news organizations. By contrast, independent channels focused on these subjects at just 12% of their videos.

Nearly all YouTube news channels examined — 66% — accept donations from viewers to support their work. Most of these channels use a service called Patreon, followed by YouTube’s own donation service. Some channels also make use of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Death of the Daily News is a deeply reported look at what happens when local journalism dies. The story of McKeesport, Pennsylvania is a troubling one that will resonate as thousands of newspapers across the country close and become “news deserts,” leaving communities without access to credible local news. But the book also offers hope, as it shows that small groups of people are creating and sustaining new kinds of local news in the digital age. It is an important, timely, and valuable book.
