The Daily News
The Daily News (known as the Illustrated Daily News until 1919) is a morning tabloid newspaper based in New York City. It is the oldest and one of the most widely circulated newspapers in the United States.
Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, it was the first American newspaper to publish in the tabloid format. The paper attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal, and violence, lurid photographs and cartoons, and other entertainment features.
From its inception, the newspaper reflected a strongly conservative editorial stance. It supported isolationism in the United States during World War II and endorsed conservative populism for much of its history. However, it shifted its stance during the 1960s and 1970s, and became moderately liberal in the 1990s.
Since then, the Daily News has been a highly influential voice in American politics. As of 2019, it is the eleventh-highest-circulated newspaper in the United States and the fourth-largest daily newspaper in New York City.
The newspaper is published every day and is available in print, online and in digital formats. Its website features a digital edition called the Daily News E-dition, which is a replica of its print version and can be read on your computer or mobile device.
In addition to its newspaper, the Daily News publishes a magazine. The Daily News Magazine contains a wide variety of articles on business, entertainment, sports and culture. The Daily News also offers a number of other products, such as an online video site and an audio streaming service.
Today, the Daily News is owned and operated by New York News, Inc., a subsidiary of Tribune Company of Chicago. The newspaper is also distributed in various other countries throughout the world.
The Daily News has its headquarters at 450 West 33rd Street, located in Manhattan West. The building is a landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. The paper moved into the current building in 1995.
