The Daily News has a long history of pursuing and covering controversial topics. It has frequently criticized political candidates, governments and other public figures for their actions or decisions; its coverage also includes controversial stories about race, sexuality, and religion.
For a time, the Daily News was a conservative newspaper in line with its sister publication the Chicago Tribune; during the 1940s and 1950s, it supported isolationism, while the paper’s editorial stance gradually changed over the years, from a staunchly Republican to a more moderately liberal view. The Daily News’ reversal of its conservative views was prompted by the rise of populism and an increase in anti-war sentiment.
Its staff of nearly 2,000 reporters and editors have a wide variety of skills, including writing, photography, graphic design, editing and reporting. Its staff is well regarded for its reporting of international conflicts and other hot-button issues, and its news analysis is widely praised.
Despite its conservative stance, the Daily News has a strong record of investigative journalism, reporting on a variety of issues and bringing stories to light that would otherwise be overlooked or ignored. It has also produced extensive coverage of political scandals, including the Teapot Dome Scandal and the Wallis Simpson affair.
As a result of the paper’s reputation for investigative reporting, it was able to secure some notable convictions and sentences for wrongdoers. Some of the most famous such convictions were of people accused of murdering or attempting to kill another person or of kidnapping children.
