The Daily News
Daily News is an American newspaper founded in 1919 as the first U.S. daily printed in tabloid format. The paper is currently owned by Tronc, the publishing operations of Tribune Company, and is based in New York City. The Daily News has long been known as a brawny metro tabloid that thrives when it digs into crime and corruption. It is often contrasted with the rival New York Post, which has a more right-leaning agenda and has traditionally had a much larger circulation.
In its 20th-century heyday, the Daily News was famous for scooping and other investigative journalism that earned it Pulitzer Prizes in commentary and feature writing and the 1994 movie “The Paper” starring Diane Keaton and Sam Waterston. But the paper has also struggled financially for decades, and its current owner, hedge fund Alden Global Capital, is slashing costs. It has offered buyouts and enacted cuts, including outsourcing the printing plant, since taking over the paper last year.
The Daily News is one of the most prominent newspapers in the United States, with a reputation for aggressive journalism and political activism. It is known for its coverage of high-profile crime cases and public scandals, and has been a prominent voice in national politics for many years. The newspaper has a strong New York City base, and its readership extends nationwide.
It is published every day except Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays. It is available in print and online. It is a source of information on politics, the economy, business, culture and sports in the United States and abroad. It also contains articles on science, history and other topics. The newspaper is read by millions of people. Its website features a number of interactive tools and is one of the most visited in the world.
The newspaper is available for purchase in major supermarkets and convenience stores. It is also sold in online and mobile apps. Its online edition is viewed by more than 4 million people a month, and its print edition has a circulation of more than 1.6 million copies per day.
Despite its large circulation, the Daily News has a very narrow demographic and a small advertising base. Its editorial content is often polarizing, but the paper has attempted to be less conservative in recent years. Its editorial board is composed of a diverse group of writers, and it has received critical praise from readers.
Its digital subscriptions are popular among young adults, and it has a significant following on social media. Its website is frequently updated with breaking news, and it offers live streaming of events in New York City. The website also has a section where viewers can comment on news stories. In addition, it provides a weekly podcast called The Daily, which covers the latest developments in politics, culture, and entertainment. The Daily has also been recognized for its innovative use of technology to reach a younger audience. Its digital subscriptions have increased steadily over the past several years.
