The Daily News is an American newspaper based in New York City. It was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson, as the Illustrated Daily News, and was the first U.S. daily printed in tabloid format, reaching its peak circulation in 1947. Today it is the eleventh largest newspaper in the United States, with a daily circulation of over two million copies. It has won eleven Pulitzer Prizes.
While most newspapers are geared toward general audiences, some specialize in particular groups such as business people, sports fans or certain immigrant communities. There are also many weekly newspapers, which target limited regional areas. A number of these have a specific focus, such as the local gay community or indie rock enthusiasts.
Typically, newspapers are published at regular intervals (daily or weekly). This allows them to provide information quickly on newly emerging news stories. Many newspapers have online editions in addition to their print versions.
Most of these online editions provide links to their print counterparts, and some are available for free, while others require subscriptions. Some of the most popular online newspapers include Google News, Yahoo News and Newsweek.
In addition to traditional print and digital editions, newspapers are increasingly releasing content via social media platforms. These venues often provide highly condensed announcements, and they often lead readers back to the original news outlet for more information. These announcements may be accompanied by photos, videos or other visuals. The credibility of this type of news is in question after several tech companies were unable to stop Russian operatives from spreading disinformation on their sites before the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
News aggregators are sites that gather and display news from other sources, including newspaper, radio and TV websites, blogs and wire services. These sites tend to have current, but not archival news. The IPO Daily NewsTM, for example, consists of three to five concise paragraphs that cover the latest developments in intellectual property law, including summaries of patent and trademark court opinions the day after they are issued as well as selected wire service stories from other major U.S. newspapers.
The Yale Daily News is the oldest college newspaper in the United States and serves both the campus and the New Haven community. It publishes Monday through Friday during the academic year and issues a variety of special editions each year, such as the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue and the Commencement Issue. In addition, the News produces several annual publications, in collaboration with the university’s cultural centers and affiliated student groups, to celebrate the diverse communities of Yale students. The News is also home to the Yale Daily News Historical Archive. This project is supported by an anonymous gift to Yale University. The Yale Daily News Archive was previously hosted at the Stanford Library. It has been migrated to a more user-friendly platform and expanded with issues from 1996 to the present. The Archive is now part of the Yale University Library’s collection of primary resources in journalism.
