What is a Daily News?

A daily news is a newspaper that is published every day. It covers a variety of topics including politics, business, and sports. It is a good way to stay current with events. You can find daily news online or in a print edition. Many newspapers have their own website where they provide all of their latest articles and updates. There are also a number of websites that provide the daily news for free.

The New York Daily News is a morning tabloid newspaper founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson. It became the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States. During the Roaring Twenties, it attracted readers with sensational and titillating coverage of crime, scandal, and violence, along with lurid photographs and cartoons.

By 1975, the News was the nation’s biggest newspaper with a circulation of over one million. During this time, the paper was locked in a fierce circulation battle with its rival, the New York Post. However, the News maintained its status as a top-selling newspaper by gaining a reputation for going “one better” than its competitors when it came to sensational coverage. One of the more notorious examples of this occurred in 1928 when reporter Tom Howard strapped a hidden camera to his leg and captured the moment Ruth Snyder was electrocuted for killing her husband. The Daily News then printed the image of Snyder in mid-electrocution.

After the News’ heyday in the 1940s, it began to struggle with declining readership. In 1978, the News was forced to close for almost three months due to a labor strike. When the strike ended, the newspaper reported a 145,000 drop in daily circulation. This was only a fraction of the circulation that the newspaper had during its heyday in the 1940s.

In the late 1990s, the Daily News began to gain a reputation for protecting First Amendment rights and for advocating on behalf of New York City residents. The paper won a Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary in 1996 for E.R. Shipp’s pieces on race and welfare issues, and again in 1998 for Mike McAlary’s coverage of police brutality against Haitian immigrant Abner Louima. The News also developed a strong reputation for its use of the internet and electronic publishing, becoming the first metropolitan newspaper to develop an entirely electronic publishing system.

In 2017, it was announced that the Daily News was being sold to Tronc, a Chicago-based media company. As part of the sale, Tronc is expected to assume all of the newspaper’s liabilities. This will include unpaid debts, which the Daily News is currently facing. In addition, the newspaper will have to rework its business model and seek out new sources of revenue. These changes are being made in order to ensure the newspaper’s survival.
