The Daily News

Daily News

Daily News, founded in 1919, is a tabloid newspaper based in New York City. The paper covers national and international news, as well as local politics and crime. It also contains extensive city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics, and a sports section. The paper has long been locked in a circulation battle with its rival, the New York Post.

The Daily News was one of the most popular newspapers in the United States during the 1920s, when it became known for its sensational headlines. It emphasized political wrongdoing such as the Teapot Dome scandal and social intrigue such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII, which led to the latter’s abdication. The newspaper’s photography was a particular strength, as it was an early adopter of the Associated Press wirephoto service and maintained a large staff of photographers.

By the 1980s, however, the Daily News had begun to lose money. Its parent company, the Tribune Publishing Company, offered it for sale. The newspaper was sold to Mort Zuckerman, who envisioned turning it into a serious tabloid. He negotiated with the unions to reduce labor costs, which were swallowing up 44 percent of the paper’s revenue.

In 1993, the Daily News was once again profitable. Its circulation had dropped to below 800,000 copies per day, a fraction of its 1940s heyday, but it was still considered one of the biggest papers in the country.

During its resurgence in the 1990s, the Daily News won many awards and honors. Its reporters were credited with exposing corruption in the New York City mayoralty and for uncovering illegal activities at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The Daily News also won acclaim for its muckraking coverage of alleged sexual abuse and other misconduct at the hands of public officials and private businesses.
