The Daily News
In the 1920s, the Daily News attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and entertainment features. Its success encouraged other tabloid newspapers to launch in the United States and abroad. In the mid-1990s, the News shifted its editorial stance to a moderate-to-liberal bias and is often contrasted with its right-wing rival, the New York Post. The News is owned by tronc, the newspaper publishing division of Tribune Company.
In addition to national and local news, the Daily News offers intense city news coverage of New York and its neighborhoods, as well as sports coverage of Yankees, Mets, Giants, and Jets. Its award-winning reporters, writers and columnists cover politics, pop culture and the latest in celebrities and sports. The Daily News is available on desktop, tablet and mobile platforms.
