The Different Types of News Media

The New York Daily News is a morning tabloid newspaper that was founded in 1919. It was the first successful American daily printed in tabloid format, reaching its peak circulation in 1947 at over 2 million copies a day. The News attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, cartoons, and entertainment features. It long competed with its rival, the more conservative New York Post, for readership and advertising dollars. The News also maintained local bureaus throughout the city and an affiliated radio station.

In recent years, the News has been owned by Tribune Publishing and controlled by the cost-slashing hedge fund Alden Global Capital. The company has offered buyouts, cut staff numbers, and outsourced its printing plant. As a result of these rapid-fire changes, many employees at the News and other newspapers in the Tribune chain have been pushed to their limits, with some even leaving the industry altogether.

Since taking over the paper, Alden has enacted buyouts and cuts that have left journalists at The News feeling exhausted and demoralized. Some have been forced to take leave or work from home because they can no longer get into the building during the pandemic, while others are struggling to make ends meet as their paychecks shrink. Meanwhile, newsrooms around the country are having to reassess their priorities and find ways to save money by using fewer staff members and outsourcing more work.

Despite the challenges, many people still believe that it is important to stay informed about what is happening in the world. A survey by the Pew Research Center found that people are more likely to trust the information they receive from local newspapers and TV stations than any other source.

With the advent of online news sources and social media, the way people consume the news has changed significantly. A new study found that nearly half of all Americans now get their news online. This is a significant increase from only 15 percent in 2009.

The Yale Daily News is the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States, founded on January 28, 1878. The Yale Daily News Historical Archive provides access to digitized versions of the printed issues. The archive is open to the public and includes over 140 years of YDN reporting.

In this week’s video we explore the different types of news media that we use to stay up to date on what is going on in the world. We’ll look at some of the major news sites that are out there, and see how they differ from one another. We’ll then discuss how some of these changes are affecting what kinds of stories we get about the news.

As you watch the video, think about how the kinds of news media you use to get your information affect what types of news stories are told. We’ll also consider whether there are some topics that come up frequently in the videos you’ve seen, like Trump’s impeachment or the 2020 election, even though they may not be the primary topic of the video.
