The Daily News

Daily News is an American newspaper founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson in New York City. The newspaper is the oldest continuously published daily in the United States. At its peak in 1947, the Daily News had a circulation of 2.4 million copies. Today, it is a tabloid and a New York city-based publication. The paper is known for its intense news coverage of events in New York City and its sports section. In addition to its extensive news coverage, the paper also features celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics and a large arts and entertainment section.

Unlike other newspapers, the Daily News does not shy away from controversial stories. In fact, the newspaper has won many awards for its investigative journalism and commentary pieces. For example, in 1996 the newspaper won the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary for E.R. Shipp’s piece on welfare and social issues in the New York City area. The newspaper has also won the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing in 1998 for Mike McAlary’s coverage of police brutality against Abner Louima.

The Daily News is a very reliable source of information for New York City and its surrounding areas. However, it is less reliable for national and international news. The paper is more likely to have inaccurate or skewed reporting on topics such as politics and government. It is also not as reputable when it comes to the accuracy of its science and health articles.

In recent years, the Daily News has struggled with declining readership and a loss of revenue. The paper’s parent company, Tribune Company, offered the tabloid for sale in 1982 and considered closing it entirely. Ultimately, the newspaper was sold to the businessman Mort Zuckerman in 1993.

In the early 21st century, the Daily News re-established its credibility as one of the top metro papers by reintroducing the tabloid format and becoming more controversial in its content. The newspaper won several Pulitzer prizes for its coverage of local crime and political scandals and reclaimed its place among the top sellers of newspapers in New York City.

In 2017, the Daily News announced that it was selling itself to Tronc, a Chicago-based media company. The move was seen as a way to save the paper from bankruptcy. The Daily News has a strong reputation for fighting for the rights of New Yorkers and especially those who are disadvantaged in the city, including immigrants and minorities. It has an editorial department led by former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton and has a reputation for exposing corruption in the city government. In addition to its traditional printed edition, the Daily News also has a website, mobile app and radio show. The paper has a number of notable contributors, such as William F. Buckley, Lan Samantha Chang, John Hersey, Sargent Shriver, and Jacob Weisberg. Its editorial board is made up of a mix of staff and regular columnists. It is considered one of the most influential newspapers in the country.
