A daily news is a publication that is published every day and covers current events of interest to the public. It is typically a newspaper, but may also be an online publication. Daily news can be about politics, science, sports, or a variety of other topics. The term is often used to refer to a specific paper, such as the New York Times or The Wall Street Journal, but it can also be applied to a group of papers.
The Yale Daily News is a college newspaper at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, United States. It is the oldest newspaper in the country and is still published each weekday while the school is in session. It has had many notable alumni go on to careers in journalism or other fields, including William F. Buckley, Lan Samantha Chang, John Hersey, Joseph Lieberman, Sargent Shriver, Paul Steiger, and others.
In addition to its regular political and business news coverage, the Daily News has a strong culture section. Its “Culture” newsletter features celebrity interviews and pop culture. The newspaper has also published several books of cultural criticism and has its own radio show, called the Parting Shot.
The News is known for its tabloid-style format, with large photographs and a heavy emphasis on local news. The newspaper has also been credited for its investigative work, such as the case of the murder of John Lennon in 1980 and its role in uncovering the Watergate scandal. The Daily News has also had a long tradition of editorial stance, moving between a staunchly conservative stance until the mid-1960s and then adopting a centrist stance. The News was a proponent of isolationism in the early days of World War II, and it supported social conservatism until the 1970s.
Since the turn of the 21st century, the Daily News has suffered from declining circulation and revenue. In 2017, the newspaper was sold to Tronc, a media company owned by billionaire Michael Zuckerman. In 2020, the News closed its New York City offices, which had been in an iconic building at 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, 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 building is now the world headquarters of the Associated Press and is part of Manhattan West.
The Daily News has also been criticized for its political coverage, especially during the 2016 presidential election. Its editorial board endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton over Republican nominee Donald Trump, and the newspaper was critical of the way Trump handled the aftermath of the Paris terrorist attacks. The paper has also criticized the Trump administration for its handling of Israel–Palestine and for not doing enough to counter Russian influence in the United States. In 2018, the News shifted its focus to coverage of local politics and government. The newspaper also has a strong opinion section, with editorials that range from scathing to congratulatory.
