The Yale Daily News is the student newspaper for the University of Yale, published each weekday while classes are in session since 1884. It is the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States. Many of its alumni have gone on to prominent careers in journalism and public service, including William F. Buckley, Lan Samantha Chang, John Hersey, Joseph Lieberman, Sargent Shriver, Paul Steiger and Strobe Talbott.
As the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States, the Daily News found abundant subject matter in the scandalous and salacious lives of the city’s residents, who were captivated by sensational crime and police reports, lurid photographs, cartoons and other entertainment features. Its circulation grew rapidly in the 1920s, surpassing 1 million by 1930. The Daily News embraced the principles of modern journalism, and pioneered in the use of wirephotography and the development of an extensive staff of photographers.
By the end of the 20th century, the Daily News was a national paper and was known for its political commentary, investigative reporting and social-issues coverage. The Daily News’s editorial stance was characterized as “flexibly centrist” with a high-minded, if populist, legacy. In the early 1980s, it shifted to a more Democratic position, in an attempt to compete with the Post’s right-wing influence.
After the SCOTUS ruling on affirmative action, the Daily News takes an in-depth look at how race played out in college admissions in recent decades, and what the decision might mean for future admissions policies at selective universities.
The Daily News is based at 220 East 42nd Street, an official city and national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood that was used as the model for the Daily Planet building in the Superman movies. The News moved to its current headquarters, 450 West 33rd Street (also known as Manhattan West), in 1995.
