A newspaper that publishes a daily edition, with news and information on events that have happened or are happening. Usually, it also contains features, such as photographs, classified ads and an opinion section. It is one of South Africa’s most widely read newspapers, especially among the working class, because it provides access to a wide range of news and information that they would otherwise not receive from other sources. The Daily News is owned by Independent Media, one of the country’s leading multi-platform content companies.
Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, the New York Daily News was the first American daily printed in tabloid format and was once the largest circulation newspaper in the United States. From the outset, the paper attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photos, and entertainment news. The newspaper grew rapidly, and by 1930 its daily circulation had reached 1,520,000 copies.
The editorial stance of the New York Daily News has varied over the years. In the 1940s, it was a supporter of isolationism, and in the 1950s it espoused conservative populism. Since the 1990s, it has shifted toward a liberal position, with an emphasis on social and cultural issues.
The Yale Daily News is the oldest college daily newspaper in America, and it serves the campus community of Yale University and New Haven, Connecticut. The News publishes Monday through Friday during the academic year, and it produces a number of special issues each year in collaboration with the University’s cultural centers and affiliated student groups. Founded on January 28, 1878, the News is financially and editorially independent from Yale’s administration. The News’s offices are located in the historic Daily News Building at 220 East 42nd Street, an official city and national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. It was the inspiration for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films.
