The Daily News, founded in 1919, is an American tabloid newspaper based in New York City. It was the first newspaper published in tabloid format and once had the largest circulation of any newspaper in the United States. The newspaper continues to publish every weekday, excluding holidays, and is the oldest continuously published newspaper in the United States. It is owned by Tronc, the Tribune Publishing Company’s publishing division, and operates from 4 New York Plaza in Manhattan. The newspaper has won eleven Pulitzer Prizes.
In recent decades, the Daily News has exhibited a liberal-to-moderate bias, often contrasting with its right-wing rival, the New York Post. The newspaper is the ninth most widely read daily in the United States, with a circulation of more than 200,000 copies.
