In a time when news can be broadcast around the globe in seconds, there are many ways that the information we receive is changing. In the past, news was considered objective and impartial, but today it has become largely dependent on the reaction of viewers and readers. In addition, the line between professional and amateur journalism has blurred.
The Daily News is a daily American newspaper founded in 1919 and printed in tabloid format. It was the first tabloid to be published in the United States and is famous for its shock or inflammatory headlines, extensive city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads and comics. The newspaper was previously owned by Mortimer Zuckerman, who sold it to Tronc in 2017.
Like other popular dailies of the day, the Daily News sought to appeal to middle and working-class readers, especially men. It focused on topics of political wrongdoing, scandal and social intrigue, such as the Teapot Dome scandal and Wallis Simpson’s romance with King Edward VIII. It also provided in-depth coverage of sports and entertainment events.
After being sold to a cost-slashing hedge fund, the Daily News lost its top editor and saw its editorial staff slashed. It has been struggling to compete with The New York Post, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch. The News has tried to revitalize itself as an anti-Trump alternative and has a large online presence, but its print circulation is continuing to decline.
As a result, it is attempting to cut costs and find ways to make money, including advertising on its website. Despite these cuts, the paper is still considered to be one of the most influential newspapers in the United States.
The Daily News focuses on current affairs, including politics and culture. It is also an important source of information about the economy and business. In addition, it offers opinions about major issues of the day and features columns by prominent writers.
Educators can use the Daily News to support reading standards and help students connect with events of the day and week. Breaking News articles, which feature world, sports and entertainment news, provide students with interesting informational text that can be used to practice skills in retelling and summarizing.
Students can also read articles from the Yale Daily News Historical Archive, which contains digitized versions of printed Yale Daily News issues dating back to 1878. The archive is free to all and provides a wealth of resources for students studying history, literature and government.
The Yale Daily News is an independent student publication that is published Monday through Friday during the academic year. It is the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States and serves the Yale and New Haven communities. The News publishes special issues throughout the year, such as the Yale-Harvard Game Day issue and Commencement issue. It also collaborates with the campus’ various cultural centers and student organizations to produce annual special editions celebrating Indigenous, Black, AAPI and Latinx students.
