A Guide to Daily Newspapers

Daily News

A daily newspaper is a periodical publication with current or recent information, typically compiled and edited by journalists. It may be printed on paper or card stock and may have illustrations, photographs, classified ads and a section for sports. It may contain local, national or international news and opinions.

Many newspapers have a dedicated team devoted to creating their website, which is often updated several times per day in response to breaking news stories. This allows the newspaper to reach a wider audience and increase readership online.

As the Internet has developed, it has become possible for events to be reported almost instantly worldwide. This has changed the nature of news, which is now largely dependent on public reaction. This can have the effect of skewing the content of news articles in some cases, although most professional journalists attempt to be objective in their reporting.

The New York Daily News is a tabloid-style newspaper published in New York City. It was once one of the largest newspaper in the United States, but its circulation has dropped significantly since the early 1970s. The paper focuses on local and national news, as well as celebrity gossip and sports. The paper also has an extensive photo department and covers major world events. It is available in both print and digital formats, with an app for mobile devices.

In the 1920s, the newspaper emphasized political wrongdoing and social intrigue, including scandals such as the Teapot Dome Scandal and the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to his abdication. The News was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and had a large staff of photographers.

Today, the paper is owned by the cost-slashing hedge fund Alden Capital. It has enacted buyouts, cut positions and outsourced its printing plant in the wake of the takeover. The rapid changes have created a climate of anxiety among staff members.

The paper’s awards-winning writers and columnists bring the best of what’s happening in New York and beyond. The Daily News covers politics, celebrities, sports and the latest New York exclusives. No other paper has as much in-depth coverage of the Yankees, Mets and Giants.

Founded in 1886, the Yale Daily News Historical Archive contains digitized versions of the newspaper from its founding through 2021. The archive is a vital resource for scholars and students studying journalism, the history of the newspaper industry and the evolution of the United States. The Yale Daily News website features a weekly online newspaper, News-2-You, that helps students with diverse needs connect with current events. Its Breaking News feature keeps readers up-to-date on interesting and necessary world, sports and entertainment news. Both the weekly online newspaper and its Breaking News stories support reading standards for informational text. Yale is grateful to an anonymous alumnus for his generous gift that has made this project possible.
