The New York Daily News is a tabloid newspaper founded in 1919 and the first successful one published in tabloid format in the United States. It attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal and violence, lurid photographs, and cartoons and entertainment features. The newspaper’s circulation peaked in 1947 at 2.4 million copies daily.
During the 1920s, the Daily News influenced American political debate with its strong pro-labor stance. It also focused on social intrigue such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to his abdication, and it developed a reputation for its extensive photojournalism. In the 1940s and 1950s, the Daily News was a Republican newspaper, advocating isolationism and conservative populism.
In the wake of the SCOTUS decision on affirmative action, the News walks through critical questions about future admissions models at selective universities.
