About Daily News
The Daily News is an American tabloid newspaper based in New York City. It has a long history of controversial journalism and is considered one of the most influential newspapers in the United States. It has a liberal political bias and is often considered to be part of the “News Media”.
The New York Daily News was founded in 1877 as the first daily newspaper published in the United States. It is the oldest continuously published newspaper in the country and is the fourth largest daily in the world by circulation. The News is a major source of news for the city of New York, and is known for its extensive coverage of local news, especially crime and politics. It also has a strong sports section, with the New York Yankees, the New York Mets, and the Brooklyn Nets among its primary focus.
It is known for its award-winning reporters, columnists and opinion formers. The paper covers national and local news, New York exclusives, politics, celebrity gossip and entertainment. The newspaper’s legendary sports section features stories about the New York Yankees, New York Giants, and the New York Mets, which are covered by a team of dedicated writers and editors.
In addition to its flagship New York edition, the Daily News has regional editions serving Manhattan, Long Island, Connecticut, and Westchester County. The News’ website has a wide variety of content, including articles, videos and podcasts. The site also offers interactive maps and a search function to help readers find specific topics of interest.
Despite its controversial history, the Daily News has received many awards for its journalism. In particular, it won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 1993 for uncovering police abuses of eviction rules. It has also won numerous other awards, such as the Emmy Award for Best Special – Continuing Coverage and the National Edward R. Murrow Award for Breaking the Story of Wounded Knee. In 1995, the News moved its headquarters from 220 East 42nd Street to 450 West 33rd Street (also called 5 Manhattan West), an official city and national landmark designed by architects John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood that served as the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films. The former News subsidiary, WPIX-TV, still operates from the building.
A spokesman for Tribune Publishing, which owns the News and four other newspapers, said employees were told Wednesday that their physical newsroom at 4 New York Plaza would be closed. Workers were given until Oct. 30 to gather their belongings.
The Yale Daily News Historical Archive is an online collection of the historic newsprint editions of the Yale Daily News, the nation’s oldest college newspaper. The archive includes every page of the Daily News from its founding in 1878 through 2021. In 2021, an anonymous Yale alumnus donated a generous gift in support of the archive’s migration to a new, more user-friendly platform that will help ensure its continued maintenance and preservation.
