The Daily News
Daily news is the information about current events in the world. The Daily News covers topics from politics to celebrity gossip and sports. The Daily News also has extensive city news coverage and a tabloid section. It is the most popular newspaper in New York City. The Daily News is owned by Tronc, a media company based in Chicago, Illinois. The newspaper is published every day except Sunday and national holidays. The paper is known for its strong opinions and a commitment to accuracy.
The newspaper began as the Illustrated Daily News, founded in 1923 by Cornelius Vanderbilt IV. It went into receivership shortly after its launch, but was bought by Manchester Boddy who operated it through most of its existence. It developed a reputation for investigative journalism, and was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service. Its editorials were influenced by liberal political thought and it promoted civil rights. It was also an advocate for women’s rights and supported the arts. It competed with the more sensational rival New York Post in circulation and political battles.
Its heyday came in the 1970s and 1980s, when it was one of the most read newspapers in the United States. Its headlines often reflected the city’s frenetic politics and social life, such as the Teapot Dome scandal or the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to her abdication. It also took a strong anti-communist stance and was criticized for its adolescent style and tabloid format.
In the 21st century, the Daily News has continued to compete with its rival, the New York Post. In addition to its city news coverage and opinion sections, it has a large comics page, a celebrity gossip column, and a variety of classified ads. It has also continued its focus on investigative reporting and in recent years has emphasized local politics. The Daily News has struggled in recent times, however, with declining advertising revenue and declining readership.
The Yale Daily News is the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States and serves the community of Yale University. It is published Monday through Friday during the academic year and is edited and written by undergraduate students. Many of its alumni have gone on to prominent careers in journalism and public life, including William F. Buckley, Lan Samantha Chang, John Hersey, Joseph Lieberman, Sargent Shriver, and Strobe Talbott. Yale Daily News staff members have also played key roles in the creation of several other influential publications, including The New Republic and The Nation. The Yale Daily News Historical Archive was created in 1996 to preserve and make available the archived copies of the newspaper from its founding through the present. The Archive is maintained by the Yale Library and supported by private donations from alumnus. In 2021, an anonymous alumnus made a significant gift to support the continuation of the Archive project. These gifts have helped the Library to continue to improve the usability of the website and expand its collection.
