The Daily News

Daily News is a newspaper that is published each day of the week and contains news and information about current events. It is a popular form of media and can be found in many countries. Some notable examples of Daily News include The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

The New York Daily News is a tabloid newspaper founded in 1919. It was the first successful tabloid in the United States and at its peak, had a circulation of over 2 million copies per day. It is currently owned by Tronc and based in Manhattan. The paper focuses on crime, scandal, and other high-profile events in the city, as well as local news. It is known for its sensational coverage, and for its use of lurid photographs and cartoons. It has a long history of controversy, including accusations of racism and homophobia.

In its early years, the Daily News gained much of its readership with its emphasis on political wrongdoing, particularly by members of the U.S. Congress. It also covered social intrigue such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to his abdication. In the 1930s, the Daily News was a pioneer of the use of wire service photos and developed a staff of photographers.

Until recently, the newspaper was owned by Mortimer Zuckerman. As the paper’s circulation declined, he decided to sell the Daily News to Tronc, a Chicago-based media company. The sale was completed in 2017.

The Daily News is a member of the New York Times Company family of newspapers, and shares the same parent company as The Boston Globe, The Los Angeles Times, and The San Francisco Chronicle. In addition to its print editions, the newspaper has a large presence on social media and provides live streaming video of many events. The website features articles, videos, and podcasts from the paper’s various departments, as well as an archive of past issues.

The troubling decline of local news has been widely documented in America, but the societal impact is still poorly understood. In Death of the Daily News, Andrew Conte delves into what happens when a town loses its newspaper—and why that loss matters. The book is both a deeply reported anatomy of newspaper death and a rallying cry that local journalism can be saved. It’s an important, and ultimately hopeful, read.
