The Daily News

daily news

A daily news is a newspaper that is published every day and contains current news stories that are of interest to the general public. Some daily newspapers are large in circulation and focus on national and international issues, while others are smaller and more regional in scope. Many daily newspapers also include opinion pieces and analysis. Some of the most popular and influential daily newspapers in the United States are The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Daily News.

Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News was one of the first tabloid newspapers ever published in the United States. Its success was due largely to its sensational coverage, including large photographs and more scandalous or titillating stories. It also included reader contests and cartoon strips. The Daily News became the largest newspaper in the country by the middle of the Roaring Twenties. The newspaper was owned by Joseph Medill Patterson, who had been the publisher of the Chicago Tribune.

In an era of heightened sexual and societal agitation, the Daily News found ample subject matter, from political wrongdoing such as the Teapot Dome scandal to social intrigue like the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that ultimately led to the latter’s abdication. The paper also emphasized its photographic coverage, becoming an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and building a large staff of photographers.

By the 1930s, the Daily News had become a leader in investigative journalism. It was among the first newspapers to investigate and publish photos of the infamous Lever Brothers Company sex scandal, and it was an early champion of labor rights in New York City. The newspaper was at its most successful during this period, reaching a circulation of over a million people a day.

The Daily News was the first tabloid newspaper to have an editorial section and to feature celebrity gossip, a classified ads section, and sports sections. In the later part of the twentieth century, it struggled to compete with its rivals in the city, and its circulation waned as a result. In 1991, the newspaper was on the brink of bankruptcy, and its owner Mortimer B. Zuckerman offered to buy the paper for just $1. Eventually, the paper reclaimed its status as a leading local tabloid and became an international player as well.

Each Daily News article includes comprehension and critical thinking questions that help students understand the story, as well as “Background” and “Resources” (including video clips, maps, and links) to give them a deeper understanding of the issue. In addition, each article has a “Sign Up for eNews” box that provides subscribers with daily email news alerts. The New York Daily News website also offers a variety of free resources for teachers.
