The New York Daily News, formerly the New York Daily News, is an American newspaper founded in 1919. It was the first daily tabloid published in the United States and reached its peak circulation in 1947. As of 2017, it is owned by Tronc, the publishing division of Tribune Company.
A wide range of stories are covered by the paper, including politics, sports and celebrities, but it also focuses on societal issues such as homelessness and poverty. It is the oldest and most prominent newspaper in New York City, and is renowned for its journalism.
In addition to its print edition, the paper publishes a daily digital version and several special issues throughout the year, such as the Yale-Harvard Game Day issue, the Commencement issue and the First Year issue. The newspaper is independently operated by Yale University and is financially independent from the University’s administration and student government.
Readers expect the News to hold public officials accountable, and to provide in-depth reporting on a variety of topics and issues. This is especially important in the wake of the Trump presidency, when many fear that the president has made a mockery of the journalistic profession. The News’s investigative journalists are highly respected, and the paper’s editorial page is frequently a forum for debate and discussion of important issues.
For decades, the Daily News’s front page screamed “Ford to City: Drop Dead,” and it competed head-to-head with the sensational rival tabloid New York Post for the attention of readers. But it has struggled in recent years, as its circulation declines and advertising revenue lags behind that of other major metro newspapers.
The News’s editorial pages are often controversial, and the paper has been known to employ strong-arm tactics in its pursuit of scoops and truth. The News has a long tradition of advocating for the rights of minorities and women. It was the first newspaper to hire an African-American woman as a television reporter, and its entertainment section pioneered celebrity-focused coverage. The News has also been a leader in covering sexual harassment and misconduct. The newspaper has won multiple Pulitzer Prizes for public service and has been called “the nation’s best and most influential daily.”
