The New York Daily News is a morning daily tabloid newspaper published in New York City. It was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson, and is a subsidiary of the Tribune Company of Chicago. It was the first successful tabloid paper in the United States, and reached peak circulation in 1947 with 2.4 million copies per day.
The Daily News has a reputation for its “flexibly centrist” editorial stance. Its editorial board has traditionally been regarded as being moderately liberal, although it has also espoused conservative populism in the past.
Despite its partisan leanings, the Daily News has had a strong reputation for covering local news. Its coverage of local politics has been a staple of the New York City press, and it is well known for its strong reporting on issues such as urban gentrification, environmental concerns, public health, crime, and education.
In the early 1920s, The News focused on political wrongdoing and social intrigue, with articles such as the Teapot Dome Scandal and the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII. Its photographs were often lurid and sensational, and its reporters favored snappy headlines.
Its headquarters are now based at 450 West 33rd Street in Manhattan, straddling the railroad tracks that lead to Pennsylvania Station. This building is known as the Daily News Building, and was designed by architects John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood.
Every weekday afternoon, the Daily News honors a hero for his or her work to improve the lives of New Yorkers. Last year, two of Tweedy’s coworkers nominated her for the Hometown Hero award for her tireless efforts to organize a local soup kitchen and transform it into one that prepares three million meals for 64,000 households in just a few years.
