The Yale Daily News

Daily news is a type of newspaper that contains news and events occurring in the world on a regular basis. It usually includes national and local events, politics, crime, and other news stories of interest to readers. Many people read a daily news article to keep up with current events and to learn more about their community. Some of the largest newspapers in the world have daily news sections. Some people also subscribe to local newspapers to receive the latest news from their city.

Founded in 1878, the Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college newspaper and serves students at Yale University and New Haven, Connecticut. The newspaper publishes Monday through Friday during the academic year and produces several special issues each year, including a game day issue, commencement issue, and first-year issue. The newspaper also publishes the WKND magazine and several student-run special sections focused on Yale’s Indigenous, Black, Latinx, Asian American and Pacific Islander communities in collaboration with their respective student groups.

The Yale Daily News is a member of the Alliance for Audited Media and complies with all AAM guidelines for verified circulation. AAM provides data for print and digital subscriptions. Because of the way they are reported, online subscriptions do not count toward total print or digital circulation for the paper and are not included in these figures. The newspaper’s circulation has been steadily declining since its peak in the late 1980s. The newspaper has shifted its editorial stance from staunchly Republican to more centrist with a high-minded, if populist, legacy.

Hedge fund Alden Global Capital has enacted buyouts, cut staff and outsourced the Daily News’ printing operations since taking over the paper last year. In addition, the Daily News has been in a legal battle with Tribune Publishing over its sale to Alden.

In its first decade as a tabloid, the New York Daily News was widely considered to be the leading competitor to its rival New York Post, with a reputation for sensational headlines and strong city news coverage. While the newspaper has lost market share to its competitors, it still remains one of the most popular and influential newspapers in the United States.

Each Daily News article contains comprehension and critical thinking questions, as well as “Background” and “Resources” (including video clips and maps) that help students understand the context of the story. These resources are available by clicking the questions below the articles.
