Daily news is a form of journalism that focuses on current events. It is written for the public and is usually published daily, although it may be a special edition or an online version. It also may be printed in smaller quantities for distribution to specific audiences.
The New York Daily News is a daily newspaper that is published in New York City, United States. It is the oldest daily newspaper in the country and was founded in 1919. The paper is a member of the Gannett family, and was the first U.S. daily newspaper to be printed in tabloid format.
It is the ninth most widely circulated newspaper in the country, and it prints 200,000 copies per day. It is owned by tronc, the publishing operations of the former Tribune Company, and is based at 4 New York Plaza in Lower Manhattan.
During the 1920s, the News was a prominent player in the United States’ tabloid press, focusing on political wrongdoing and social intrigue. Its sensational coverage was often accompanied by lurid photographs, cartoons and other entertainment features.
The News was also an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service. It was one of the first newspapers to carry an opinion page, and it devoted a large staff to photography.
As the largest newspaper in the city, the Daily News competed with other local papers and with other tabloids such as the New York Post for readers, and its circulation was the highest of any daily newspaper during the twentieth century.
From 1929 to 1995, the News was headquartered at 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, a building designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood that is now an official city landmark. The newspaper moved to 450 West 33rd Street (also known as 5 Manhattan West) in 1995. The original building is still called the Daily News Building, and remains home to WPIX-TV (channel 11 in New York City).
While a self-proclaimed Republican newspaper for much of its history, the Daily News has exhibited a more moderate-to-liberal bias over the years, compared to other right-rated newspapers such as the New York Post. It has received an AllSides Media Bias Rating of Left, our most liberal rating on the political spectrum.
