Daily news is an important source of information that keeps people up to date on current events. Often, they also provide commentary and opinion pieces that offer different points of view on the news. These articles are typically a mix of breaking news stories, in-depth coverage of an issue, and other more lighthearted news topics. The Daily News is one of the largest newspapers in the country, with over a million daily readers.

The Daily News was founded in 1919 and has been described as “the first tabloid newspaper in the United States.” It found immediate success on the subway system, where commuters appreciated its smaller size and quicker read. The Daily News became known for its large photographs and focus on scandalous, titillating, and entertaining stories. The paper also ran reader contests and cartoon strips.

By the end of the Roaring Twenties, circulation had reached 1.5 million and the Daily News established itself as the nation’s biggest newspaper. The paper emphasized political wrongdoing (such as the Teapot Dome Scandal) and social intrigue (like Wallis Simpson’s romance with King Edward VIII that led to the abdication). It was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and developed a substantial staff of photographers.

In the 1930s, the Daily News expanded its presence in New York City by opening local bureaus in Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. The Daily News was also one of the first newspaper to use color photography and started a popular monthly magazine, The Evening Sun.

After World War II, the Daily News continued to grow and in 1948 launched WPIX television, whose call letters were inspired by its nickname, “New York’s Picture Newspaper.” The newsroom was later moved to its current location in the News Building.

By the 1980s, the newspaper was struggling financially. The Daily News was a union shop and the Tribune Company began to encounter difficulty negotiating with its workers. In October 1990, the ten unions that represented the Daily News’ employees went on strike. The strike lasted 147 days and resulted in a loss of $70 million for the newspaper. The Daily News remained in business by using non-union replacement staff, but the losses piled up.

Today, the Daily News is owned by Tronc and remains based in New York City. It is considered the first and most influential tabloid newspaper in the U.S. Its website offers extensive local and national news, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics, a sports section, and an opinion section. Its renowned editorials are a part of what makes the Daily News stand out from other newspapers. In terms of bias, Ad Fontes Media rates it as Skewed Left and Reliable in Analysis/Fact Reporting. The Daily News is a free, daily newspaper. It is available on all major devices, including smartphones and tablets. Its editorial policy is independent from its ownership. In addition to the newspaper, the Daily News also maintains a vast collection of digital archives.
