The Daily News of New York
Daily News is a tabloid newspaper in New York City, the first to be published in tabloid format in the United States. The paper was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News and later renamed the New York Daily News. In the 1920s and 1930s it attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal, and violence, lurid photographs, and comics and entertainment features. It was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and developed a staff of photographers. The News also devoted considerable attention to politics and public affairs. The paper was a strong supporter of isolationism in the early years of World War II and shifted its stance in the late 1960s to one of high-minded, if populist, conservatism.
The Daily News remains an important source of information on local news and events, particularly for the residents of New York City. Its website contains a variety of features including local sports, celebrity gossip, classified ads, and a full range of current event reports. The newspaper has a large following amongst college students and is available at most major book stores in the city. It is also distributed at various locations in the New York City area, including subway stations, One Police Plaza, and City Hall.
A spokesman for the newspaper said the move is a response to declining readership and increasing competition from digital platforms. He added that the newspaper’s editorial board and management will remain intact. “At this time, we are assessing the best way to meet the needs of our loyal readers, while continuing to provide top-notch journalism,” the spokesman said.
The Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college daily and serves the Yale and New Haven communities. The News publishes Monday through Friday during the academic year. In addition to the daily newspaper, the News also publishes a weekly magazine and special issues each year celebrating Yale’s Indigenous, Black, AAPI and Latinx communities in collaboration with their respective cultural centers and affiliated student groups. The newspaper is financially and editorially independent of the university.
