Daily News

Daily news is a newspaper that is published each day. These newspapers often contain articles about politics, crime, business, and sports. Some of these newspapers also contain opinions and editorials about important issues. Daily news is a very important part of people’s lives.

In 1919 Joseph Medill Patterson founded the Illustrated Daily News in New York City. The tabloid attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and celebrity gossip. Patterson’s success at the Daily News would lead him to found several other dailies across the country.

By the mid-20th century, the Daily News was one of the largest newspapers in the world. Its distribution reached a peak in 1947 when Time magazine wrote, “The brassy, pictorial Daily News led all the rest”.

However, as readership waned and the rise of online news sources became evident, the newspaper began to lose revenue. In 2017, the paper was close to going out of business when Tronc, its parent company, bought it for one dollar. After the acquisition, the newspaper went back to its roots and focused on more controversial and provocative stories. The newspaper has a reputation for being very critical of the president and other politicians. It has a large following of social media users, especially among young people.

The Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college daily newspaper and serves the campus of Yale University. It is edited and produced by students in the Department of Journalism, and has a staff of student assistant editors. It publishes Monday through Friday during the academic year, and produces special editions for various occasions, including a Yale-Harvard game day issue and a Commencement issue. The News collaborates with Yale’s cultural centers and affiliated student groups to produce its diversity issues.

This archive contains the complete text of the Daily News from 1996 through 2021, as well as partial text from earlier years. This collection is available free of charge as a result of an anonymous gift to the Yale Library.

Each article includes comprehension and critical thinking questions, as well as “Background” and “Resources” sections. These materials provide additional information and perspectives on the news story, supporting students’ understanding of the article.

This site allows students to explore front pages of newspapers from around the United States and many nations worldwide. Students can click on the image of a front page to read a full-size version in their browser or to download a high-resolution PDF. They can also locate a specific newspaper by name or on a map. This site is updated each day to capture a snapshot of journalism in motion worldwide. This project was made possible by a generous gift from an anonymous Yale alumnus. We are grateful for this support. The Yale Daily News Historical Archive is a digital project of the Yale Library. For more information, please see our About the Archive page.
