The Daily News is a morning daily tabloid newspaper in New York City. Its mission is to provide news, commentaries and opinion about life in New York. Founded in 1919, the Daily News has won a total of eleven Pulitzer Prizes.
The Daily News’s circulation grew to a peak of 2.4 million copies a day in 1947. This sparked a circulation battle with the New York Post. In the 1980s, the Daily News began to focus on politics and crime while the Post covered business. During World War II, the Daily News supported isolationism. However, it also provided a strong sports coverage. By the 1970s, the Daily News was in financial trouble. Its circulation began to fall. Eventually, it changed its name to the Daily News.
In 1993, the paper was purchased by Mortimer B. Zuckerman. A New York real estate developer, he agreed to pay $1 for the paper. Since then, he has sold it to Tribune Publishing. Today, the Daily News is owned by Tribune Publishing.
For decades, the paper was a staunch Republican newspaper. But it eventually became a moderate liberal alternative to the right-wing Post. One of the reasons that the Daily News has been successful was its focus on the social side of life. From its beginnings in the 1920s, the Daily News found plenty of subject matter to cover.
For a time, the Daily News was the largest circulated newspaper in the country. The paper boasted a large staff of photographers and cartoonists. Some of its reporters included Clark Kent and Lois Lane.
Although the Daily News is known for its news and entertainment coverage, it has also won several awards for its commentary. In 2017, the Daily News won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. Another award the newspaper has won is for feature writing.
The paper is also known for its prominent photographs. Among them are a number of photographs of celebrities and sports players. These pictures serve as visual examples of the high-quality journalism that the Daily News has provided. Currently, the newspaper offers an interactive edition that is available on computers and mobile devices. Its interactive features allow readers to share stories with others and swipe between pages.
Several members of the Daily News team are unsure about their future careers. They are still employed by the newspaper, but they will have to begin collecting their belongings by October 30.
Despite its problems, the Daily News continues to cover news that is important to readers. Whether it’s sports, business, or political commentary, the newspaper provides the latest news. Those looking for a newspaper that is easy to read and can be consumed by those who have limited free time will enjoy reading the Daily News.
