Founded on January 28, 1878, the Yale Daily News is America’s oldest college newspaper. The News is financially and editorially independent, serving the Yale community Monday through Friday during the academic year. The News also publishes a weekly Friday supplement, WKND, and several special issues each year including the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue and the Commencement Issue. Throughout its history, the News has had a varied editorial stance. In the 1920s it leaned left, in the 1940s it espoused isolationism, and in the 1990s it moved toward moderate liberal politics with a high-minded, if populist, legacy.
Local newspapers are dying—and that’s a problem for democracy. Author Andrew Conte investigates what happens when the local news source shuts down, in McKeesport, Pennsylvania—and finds that citizens fill the gap as gatekeepers of information for their neighbors. He offers clues about the future of local news and argues that the answer lies not in more top-down journalism, but in citizens actually understanding the value of their own community’s news.
