The Daily News is a morning newspaper based in New York City, and a subsidiary of the Tribune Company. The Daily News is one of the largest-circulated newspapers in the United States, and is known for its sensational reporting of crime, scandal, and other newsworthy events. It is the oldest tabloid newspaper still in operation, and has a history that spans over 100 years.
The New York Daily News was the first newspaper to be printed in a tabloid format, which is a type of newspaper that is larger and heavier than standard newspapers. It was founded by Joseph Medill Patterson in 1919 and was the first newspaper to use the term “tabloid”.
For a long time, the New York Daily News was the best selling newspaper in the country, even though it faced stiff competition from its more sensational rivals. Its circulation increased rapidly in the 1920s and 1930s, and reached a peak of 2.4 million copies per day in 1947.
In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the Daily News was a major supporter of the anti-Communist movement. It also opposed the Vietnam War. During that time, the newspaper was considered to be “flexibly centrist,” with a reputation for high-minded journalism.
It was also a leading proponent of the American flag, and devoted much attention to photographs. It was a pioneer of using wirephoto services, and developed a large staff of photographers.
Today, the News is a business-to-business newspaper with a focus on the financial sector, including the stock market, real estate, insurance and banking. It is also a widely read national news source that has strong international coverage and is published in various languages, including English and Spanish.
As of July 2017, the News had a paid subscription base of more than 6 million. Its readership is primarily made up of New Yorkers, but the paper’s news coverage has reached a national audience through its radio and television broadcasts.
The Daily News’s signature feature is its “New York’s Picture Newspaper” series, which features large and prominent photographs for news, entertainment, sports, and the arts. The series has been cited as the “best and most popular” among print media.
In addition, the Daily News maintains a number of regional bureaus, which provide local news and commentary to their readers. These include offices in Manhattan West, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island.
The Daily News also has a website and social media presence, and has several television stations. Its flagship station is WPIX (channel 11 in New York City), whose call letters were derived from the newspaper’s name. The station is a subsidiary of the Tribune Company, which bought it in 1991.
