In a career that spanned more than four decades, the New York Daily News became one of America’s most successful tabloid newspapers. It attracted readers with sensational crime, scandal and violence coverage, lurid photographs, and cartoons. The Daily News was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson and became a subsidiary of the Tribune Company of Chicago. By the early 1930s, it had the highest circulation of any newspaper in the world.

By the 1980s, the Daily News was in decline. A slew of embarrassing scandals, including bribery and corruption allegations, forced the newspaper to reevaluate its ethics. The Daily News shifted its political affiliation from Republican to Democratic and began adopting an investigative journalism style. In 1996, it won the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary for E.R. Shipp’s pieces on race and welfare, as well as for Mike McAlary’s reporting on police brutality against Haitian immigrant Abner Louima. In the same year, it launched a television station, WPIX-TV.

The Daily News had a reputation for being the “eyes and ears of New York City” and was often seen as an advocate for the underdog. The paper continued to publish controversial and sensational pictorials, but the most significant change came in 1975 when it ran a headline that was to become legendary: “FORD TO CITY: DROP DEAD.” This was a reference to President Gerald Ford’s refusal to approve a bankruptcy bailout for New York City.
