Daily news is a newspaper that reports on current events. It can cover a range of topics, including politics, business, sports, and more. Some newspapers are based in a specific location, while others are national or international. Daily news can be found in print or online.
In its 20th-century heyday, The Daily News was a brawny metro tabloid that thrived when it dug into crime and corruption. It was a model for The Daily Planet of the Superman movies, and it won Pulitzer Prizes in commentary and feature writing. Today, the paper has a circulation of about 2.4 million and a staff that includes many famous names who have gone on to careers in journalism and public life.
The Daily News has an AllSides media bias rating of Left, meaning it tends to support liberal, progressive or left-wing thought and policy agendas. This is our highest rating for a media outlet.
For many decades, people in towns and cities across the United States got their local news every day from a newspaper that was published nearby. But, as a result of technological change, the industry has been disrupted, putting thousands of journalists out of work and closing newsrooms. This has created “news deserts” — areas that have no traditional local news sources.
Amid the disruption, some communities are finding new ways to keep their residents informed. The southwestern Pennsylvania town of McKeesport, for example, lost its local newspaper in 2015. Since then, residents have turned to social media to stay informed about what is happening in their community. But they have also discovered that it can be hard to tell what’s true from what isn’t.
As a result, some are calling for state and local governments to do more to promote civic engagement by providing funding and other forms of assistance to local news outlets. And others are pushing for laws that would require digital platforms to disclose when they are receiving payments from companies in exchange for news content.
Whether these efforts succeed or not, it is clear that the landscape of local news is changing rapidly. For some, it means that traditional newspapers have become obsolete. For others, it is an opportunity to develop a more vibrant and trustworthy kind of local news.
