Yale Daily News

A daily news is a publication that includes current events and other items of interest to the public. It is a popular form of media that provides information on a variety of topics including politics, business and sports. Daily news is typically written in a newspaper format and may include features such as weather reports, political analysis and comics.

The Yale Daily News is a student-run, campus-based newspaper published each weekday during the school year when classes are in session. The paper is the oldest college daily in the United States and its alumni have gone on to prominent careers in journalism and public life, including William F. Buckley, Lan Samantha Chang, John Hersey, Jacob Weisberg, and Strobe Talbott.

In the 1920s, the Daily News became the first successful tabloid newspaper in America, attracting readers with sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and cartoons. By the 1930s, the newspaper had a circulation of more than 1.5 million and was one of the most profitable in the country.

As the Daily News expanded its empire, it moved to a new headquarters at 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue in 1929. Designed by architects Raymond Hood and John Mead Howells, the landmark building was a city and national landmark that would later be used as inspiration for the Daily Planet in the Superman films.

After the end of World War II, the newspaper’s profits declined as a result of declining advertising revenue and falling subscriptions. The daily also suffered from years of costly labor disputes with its ten unions, which at times called for strikes. By the 1980s, the newspaper was losing about a million dollars per month.

Although the newspaper fought hard to stay alive, its future was in doubt. In 2017, the newspaper’s owner, Zuckerman, decided to sell it to Tronc, a Chicago-based media company for just $1. The following year, Tronc went on a firing spree and culled more than half of the Daily News staff.

In addition to reporting on the latest local, state and national news, the Yale Daily News provides its students with a wide range of writing and editing opportunities, which allows them to develop professional skills while learning about the world around them. The paper is a primary source of news and debate at Yale, and its writers have a broad spectrum of backgrounds and interests.

The Daily News also provides a number of online and mobile applications that allow its readers to keep up with the latest developments in a fast-paced, ever-changing world. The application allows its readers to track stories they are interested in and share them with friends, as well as provides links to related articles and video clips. It also includes comprehension and critical thinking questions for each day’s news story, located below the article. The questions encourage students to think critically about each story and provide them with additional resources to assist in their research.
