Daily Newspapers

A daily newspaper is a publication that contains information about current events. It also includes opinions and editorials that provide a variety of perspectives on the news. Daily newspapers are available in print and online, and can be found worldwide. Many are printed on glossy paper and feature photos of celebrities, politicians, and athletes. The New York Times and the Washington Post are two of the most popular and widely read daily newspapers in the United States.

The Yale Daily News is published every weekday when the University is in session, and is the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States. It has been the primary source of news and debate on campus for over 130 years, and many former student editors and writers have gone on to prominent careers in journalism and public service.

While the Daily News is primarily a local news outlet, it does cover national events and stories. In addition, it has a strong emphasis on investigative journalism. The Daily News is a member of the Society of Professional Journalists and the American Press Association.

Originally founded in 1919, the New York Daily News began as a weekly publication before becoming a daily in 1921. It found abundant subject matter in the United States of that era, which was rife with political wrongdoing and social intrigue. The News became known for its brassy, pictorial style and was a pioneer in photography, using the Associated Press wirephoto service in the 1930s and developing a large staff of photographers. By 1947, its circulation reached a peak of 2.4 million copies daily, making it the nation’s largest newspaper.

In 1991, British media mogul Robert Maxwell purchased the Daily News from the Tribune Company. In an effort to rediscover the newspaper’s earning potential, he made several major changes. He invested $60 million in color presses, allowing the Daily News to match the visual quality of USA Today, the country’s largest newspaper at the time. He also repositioned the newspaper as a “serious tabloid” and focused on investigative reporting.

But by the turn of the 21st century, readership had dropped considerably and by 2016 the Daily News was battling to retain its position among New York City’s most-read papers. It reverted back to some of its more provocative roots in an attempt to grab readers’ attention, including giving Sen. Ted Cruz the middle finger from the Statue of Liberty’s hand and repeating its famous headline, “Ford to City: Drop Dead.”

In 2017 it was announced that Zuckerman had sold the Daily News to Tronc. The sale was not without controversy, as the Daily News was struggling to maintain its relevance and circulation in an age of digital media. Upon its purchase, Tronc promised to invest in the newspaper’s newsroom and improve digital products. This included a major redesign and launching an online version of the newspaper. It is hoped that these changes will attract younger readers and revitalize the Daily News.
