A daily news is an article published in a newspaper. In the days before the internet, newspapers were the main source of news for people. The articles in a daily news would include the latest and most up-to-date reports of events. Typically, there would be both a morning and evening edition of the daily news. The daily news would contain a range of topics, from political issues and personalities to sports, science, and other current affairs. The newspaper would usually be divided into sections, ranging from national and international news to local news. It would also include opinion pieces called editorials and op-eds that express the views of writers on a particular issue, as well as a variety of other news items and features.
The New York Daily News is an American tabloid-style newspaper founded in 1919. It was the first U.S. daily newspaper printed in tabloid format, and at its peak circulation of 2.4 million copies per day was the largest-circulation newspaper in the world. In its heyday in the 20th century, the newspaper was a brawny metro tabloid that thrived on crime and corruption reporting. It was the inspiration for the Daily Planet of the Superman movies. Today, the paper is owned by Tribune Publishing and operates out of 220 East 42nd Street in Manhattan, a city landmark that was designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood.
A major metric for judging the success of a daily newspaper is its market penetration, which is the percentage of households in a given geographic area that receive a copy of the newspaper on a weekly basis. This figure was at its highest in the 1920s, when a typical household received 1.23 newspapers on a weekly basis. In the 2000s, as other media began to compete with newspapers and readers became increasingly accustomed to getting their news online, this number started to decline.
As of 2017, the New York Daily News is still one of the largest-circulation daily newspapers in the United States. It has won numerous awards, including the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 2017 for its investigation of police abuses in the New York City eviction process. In its 20th-century heyday, the paper was known for its bold style, investigative journalism, and its coverage of high-profile crime and corruption.
In the mid-1990s, it was the only major daily newspaper that did not support the war in Iraq. Since the early 21st century, it has been described as a centrist newspaper with a “high-minded, populist legacy”. It has also been seen as a moderately liberal alternative to the right-wing New York Post. In 2021, an anonymous Yale College alumnus made a significant gift in support of the Daily News Historical Archive project, which enabled it to move to a new platform and to expand its coverage to include the period from 1996 to present. This donation enables the archive to be accessed by a wider audience, and will facilitate its ongoing maintenance and enhancement.
