Daily news is a type of newspaper that is published on a regular basis. It is a form of journalism that reports on events that are happening during the day and is mainly devoted to covering local news. It is an important form of media for keeping people informed on current events.
The New York Daily News was once the largest newspaper in the United States, with a circulation of 2.4 million copies per day, as of 2019. It is still widely read by its large audience. It is based in Jersey City, New Jersey and was founded by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News in 1919.
It is known for sensational coverage of crime, scandal, and violence, lurid photographs, cartoons, and other entertainment features. In addition, it carries a number of classified ads and has a sports section.
The newspaper also publishes an evening paper on Saturdays and Sundays, called the Daily News Magazine, which is similar in content to its morning edition but not as sensational. In 2017, the newspaper was purchased by Chicago-based Tronc, and is now published as part of its News Network brand.
The Daily News has been a longtime supporter of the Republican Party, in line with its sister publication, the Chicago Tribune. From the 1940s through the 1960s, it espoused conservative populism. In the 1990s, it shifted its political views, becoming more moderately liberal.
