Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News was America’s first successful tabloid newspaper. It attracted readers with sensational reporting of crime, scandal, and violence, lurid photographs, and entertainment features like cartoons. By the 1930s, its circulation had grown to over 1.5 million, outpacing even the far more popular New York Post.
The News’ original headquarters was a tower at 450 West 33rd Street in Manhattan, which straddled the railroad tracks that ran into Pennsylvania Station. The building later became the world headquarters of the Associated Press, and is now part of Manhattan West. In 1928, a News reporter strapped a camera to his leg and photographed Ruth Snyder being executed in the electric chair; this photograph was the inspiration for the iconic Daily News headline “DEAD!”
The paper’s editorial stance has been described as “flexibly centrist” with a “high-minded, if populist, legacy”. Through much of the early 20th century it supported isolationism and conservative populism; from the 1940s through the 1960s it leaned more toward liberalism; and by the 1990s it had shifted to a moderately liberal stance. The News is notable for its long-running rivalry with the right-wing New York Post, which in many ways influenced the newspaper’s editorial style.
