The Daily News

A daily newspaper is a publication that comes out each day and contains news and information about current events. Some examples of a daily newspaper include The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. Some of these papers also have editorial opinions about current events and issues. A daily newspaper is a great way to stay up-to-date on the latest news.

Daily News

The Daily News is a tabloid newspaper published in New York City, New York, United States. It is the oldest and most famous college newspaper in the country, and has been credited with starting many of the trends that are now commonplace in newspapers. During its heyday in the 1920s, it was the most widely read newspaper in America. Today, it is the 11th highest-circulation newspaper in the country.

Its success was due in large part to its sensational pictorial coverage and a willingness to go far out of its way to get the story. This was perhaps best exemplified in the 1928 story of Ruth Snyder, who had been sentenced to death for murdering her husband. The Daily News was the first newspaper to photograph a woman mid-electrocution, which led to a nationwide moratorium on capital punishment.

By the 1980s, the Daily News was suffering from years of declining profitability. Unions had made unreasonable demands regarding rules and job numbers, and the paper was bleeding cash. In addition, the daily newspaper had been losing money on advertising contracts. Eventually, the newspaper was operating at a loss of $1 million per month. During this time, the newspaper was also plagued by declining morale amongst its staff.

In 1991, British media mogul Robert Maxwell purchased the newspaper from Tribune Company. Under his control, the Daily News was able to break a 147-day strike and began to make some progress toward profitability. However, the resurgence was short-lived. By 1992, the newspaper was again in trouble.

Its decline continued in 1993, when it was reported that the newspaper had lost more than $50 million in one year alone. This led to an attempted sale by Tribune Company, but it was ultimately unsuccessful. In 1994, the newspaper was acquired by publisher Mort Zuckerman. Zuckerman invested $60 million towards the purchase of color presses, enabling it to compete with USA Today in terms of visual quality. He also began to hire more experienced journalists and focused on local news stories.

The Yale Daily News Historical Archive was created in 2021 thanks to an anonymous donation from a Yale alumnus. This generous gift facilitated the migration of the archive to its new platform and enables the ongoing maintenance of the collection. The archive currently contains over 50,000 digital images of articles and covers from the Daily News’s long history of publishing. The archive is an invaluable resource for historians, researchers and the general public.
