Daily news is a type of newspaper that provides updates on events that are happening in a particular area or country. The newspaper may contain text, pictures, and graphics and is typically published in tabloid form. The paper is usually delivered to homes, offices, or other buildings, and may be sold as a subscription.
The New York Daily News (also known as the Daily News) is a tabloid newspaper that is published in New York City, and is owned by Tribune Company. It was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson and was the first United States daily newspaper printed in a tabloid format. It had a peak circulation of 2.4 million copies a day in 1947.
Its editorial stance is “flexibly centrist,” but with a strong partisan streak. Its earliest issues were largely conservative, and its stance on wars and foreign policy was often a supporter of isolationism. In the 1960s, however, it began to adopt a moderately liberal stance, a trend that continued into the 1990s.
The News has an extensive photographic staff. It is an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and has developed a large archive of its own photos. Its coverage of political wrongdoing, including the Teapot Dome Scandal, has often emphasized the role of photography in exposing wrongdoing.
In addition to its main New York City bureaus, the Daily News has local bureaus in the Bronx and Brooklyn. It also maintains bureaus at City Hall, One Police Plaza, and the various state and federal courthouses in the city.
With an active readership of 200,000, the Daily News remains one of the largest newspapers in the nation. Its circulation has declined significantly since the mid-20th century, and in recent years it has been purchased by a Chicago-based media company.
The Daily News also publishes a variety of other publications, including an online magazine called The Daily News Report, an international news agency, and a weekly business journal. Its main website is at dailynews.com, where users can subscribe to a full subscription or read the paper on demand. The paper also features an interactive section called The News Desk, which includes articles on current events and sports, as well as a video blog, an opinion page, a calendar, and a podcast.
