A daily news is a newspaper that publishes the news of the day. Typically, it contains an analysis of the news and its implications. It is a popular medium of journalism because it allows the reader to keep up with the happenings of the world in a very short span of time. It is also very convenient because it can be easily printed and distributed.
Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, the New York City-based Daily News was the first American daily newspaper printed in tabloid format. The newspaper gained a reputation for sensational reporting and lurid photography, especially during its heyday in the 1920s. The paper was known for its coverage of police corruption, social intrigue (such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to his abdication), and celebrity gossip. The Daily News was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service, and developed a large staff of photographers.
The News was one of the nation’s best-selling newspapers until it was surpassed in circulation by its rival, the New York Post. Its editorial stance has varied over the years. From the 1940s through the 1960s, it espoused a conservative populism, while in the 1970s and 1980s it became more liberal. The Daily News is currently owned by New York Media, Inc., with businessman Mortimer Zuckerman as chairman and copublisher.
