What is a Daily News?

daily news

A daily news is a newspaper published once a day. A number of different types of newspapers are available, ranging from broadsheets to tabloids and containing articles covering national and international news as well as local events. Newspapers also include opinion pieces, called “op-eds” and columns that express the personal opinions of writers. They may cover a wide range of topics, from politics to economics and science to sports. Some are targeted to a specific audience, such as business people or sports enthusiasts within a city or region.

Newspapers are published in both print and electronic form. The print versions are often delivered through a mail service, while the electronic editions can be delivered to a user’s email inbox or viewed online. The information contained in a daily news is typically compiled by journalists, who gather facts and information, and present them in an easy-to-read format. Newspapers also use photographs and graphics to accompany their articles.

The first newspaper was the notizie scritte, published in Venice in 1556. These handwritten news-sheets were meant to convey political, military, and economical news quickly to the city’s citizens at the cost of one gazetta, a small coin. The first modern newspaper, which was also the first tabloid in the United States, was the New York Daily News, launched on September 13, 1902. It reached its peak circulation of 2.4 million copies in 1947 and is still in publication today.

In the 1990s, the New York Daily News gained a reputation for its strong stand on social issues, winning a Pulitzer Prize in 1996 for E.R. Shipp’s piece on welfare and race and a Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary in 1998 for Mike McAlary’s account of the Abner Louima police beating. Its editorial page regularly challenged the actions of New York City’s police force and its mayor, and the paper also earned a reputation for investigative journalism.

The newspaper is published by the Tribune Company and has its headquarters in the landmark Art Deco Daily News Building, designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. The building was used as the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films and is now a historic landmark.

By the 1980s, however, the Daily News was losing money and its parent company, the Tribune Company (later Tronc), put it up for sale. Owner Mort Zuckerman successfully bidded against a rival offer from media mogul Conrad Black and bought the newspaper for $36 million.

The Daily News has a reputation for bold pictorial coverage, and was the first tabloid to publish a picture of a condemned criminal mid-electrocution. It has won acclaim for its use of hidden cameras, such as the one reporter Tom Howard strapped to his leg in order to photograph Ruth Snyder at the electric chair in 1928. The Daily News reclaimed its place as the most prominent of New York’s papers in the early 21st century, although its circulation has declined considerably since its peak in the 1950s.
