The Daily News

Daily News

The Daily News is an American newspaper published in New York City. During its 20th-century heyday, the brawny metro tabloid thrived by digging into crime and corruption, and it won Pulitzer Prizes for commentary and feature writing. In an era when newspapers have been struggling for readership, The News, owned by Tribune Publishing since 2017, has shrunk its physical newsroom. The paper continues to attract readers through its website and social media.

Most newspaper publishers print the news on cheap paper known as newsprint or “tabloid stock”. They are often owned by a company that is in turn owned by shareholders or other private individuals, but they rely on subscription revenue and sale of advertising (other businesses or people pay to place an advertisement in the newspaper) to cover operating costs and to earn profit. Traditionally, newspapers are printed on a weekly or daily basis and include sections that report events in a local area, national or international news, business news, sports news, entertainment news, comics and other features. Many also have editorials or opinions expressed by the editor or editorial board of the newspaper on a public issue, opinion articles called op-eds written by guest writers, and columns that express the personal views of columnists.

A newspaper article is a short piece of information on a current or recent event or topic. It is usually compiled by a group of journalists who work for the publication, and it may be presented as a news story, an editorial, or an op-ed. It is usually accompanied by one or more photos, graphics, or illustrations, and it may be supplemented with charts, maps, graphs, or other graphic aids.

Almost all newspapers have some form of news analysis or synthesis, which is an attempt to provide context and explanation for the events reported in the news stories. A major feature of modern newspapers is the use of photographs, and some have television and radio news programs as well. Most newspaper articles are written by professional journalists, and they may be edited by editors. Typically, each journalist works on a particular subject area, or beat, and writes stories about that area.

Many newspapers publish a Sunday edition, distinct in some respects from the daily edition, and sometimes referred to as a “weekend” or a “magazine”. Some have even stopped printing in favor of web-only versions. In some countries, it is common for a single publisher to produce both a daily and a Sunday newspaper, with each having its own editorial staff and often having a separate title and logo; for example, in the United Kingdom, The Times and The Sunday Times are two distinct publications despite being owned by the same company, and an article published in the latter would never be credited to The Times. The Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college newspaper, and it has a long history of reporting on campus and in New Haven. In addition to the Daily News, the paper publishes a Friday supplement called WEEKEND and several special issues each year such as the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue and the Commencement Issue.
