Daily news is the main source of information in many countries. It can be found on newspapers, TV and radio. It is a summary of current events and is often political in nature. In addition, it may contain other types of news such as weather, sports and entertainment.
In a time when fewer and fewer people read daily newspapers, this type of news is increasingly being delivered online or via mobile phone. Many websites now have a special dedicated section for daily news. These sections are usually curated by editors and are more focused than the overall news site. This is because the editors know what to look for and can provide readers with the most relevant and important stories from around the world.
The New York Daily News (known colloquially as the Daily News) is an American newspaper founded in 1919. It was the first U.S. daily to be printed in tabloid format. It is currently owned by tronc, the publishing operations of the Tribune Company, and is headquartered at 4 New York Plaza in Lower Manhattan.
Like other popular dailies of the period, the News emphasized political wrongdoing and social intrigue, such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to his abdication. It also devoted much attention to photography; it was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service in the 1930s and developed a large staff of photographers.
Throughout its long history, the Daily News has shifted in its editorial stance and is now considered moderately liberal. It continues to include intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics and a sports section. The News is known for its high-minded, if populist, legacy and is often contrasted with the more right-wing New York Post.
Each Daily News article contains comprehension and critical thinking questions that will help students analyze the story. Additionally, the Daily News provides “Background” and “Resources” to give students more information about the topic.
The Yale Daily News Historical Archive, which contains nearly 140 years of the newspaper’s reporting, is available to anyone with a web browser. This collection is made possible by the generosity of an anonymous Yale College alumnus and the Library’s commitment to preservation and ongoing maintenance.
