The Daily News
The Daily News is a New York City morning newspaper that provides a wide variety of news and information, including politics, crime, sports, opinion, classified ads, celebrity gossip, and more. With a circulation of 200,000, it is the ninth largest newspaper in the country. The publication has also been the recipient of 11 Pulitzer Prizes, making it one of the most highly acclaimed newspapers in the country.
It was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News. It was the first American daily to be published in tabloid format. After a few months, the name was changed to the Daily News. The paper gained success in the 1920s, and it was known for its sensational reporting of crime and social intrigue.
When it came to reporting on politics, the paper often contrasted with the right-wing New York Post. However, the Daily News exhibited a moderate to liberal editorial bias in recent years. As a result, it has a left-wing AllSides Media Bias Rating. This is the most liberal rating on the political spectrum.
Since the mid-1970s, the Daily News has shifted in its editorial stance. While the Daily News still maintains a conservative stance, it is far from the extremist position it once occupied. In the early 1940s, the Daily News backed isolationism in the United States.
By the 1970s, the Daily News had become a strong player in the city’s newspaper industry. During this period, it was the largest metro tabloid in the nation, and it had a peak circulation of 2.4 million copies a day. Yet the circulation sank to an all-time low of less than a quarter of a million in the 1980s.
When the Daily News was bought by Tronc, it was the third biggest newspaper in the country, behind only the New York Times and the Washington Post. Despite the decline of its circulation, the Daily News continued to provide strong local news coverage and feature writing. And it even won a Pulitzer Prize for commentary.
The Daily News has been a leader in the field of news, and it is well-known for its award-winning writers. Among the staff, there are journalistic giants such as William F. Buckley and Clark Kent, and other prominent figures.
But with the recent arrival of a coronavirus, The Daily News has been working remotely. The News’s journalists are still on the lookout for their next job. Meanwhile, the media mogul Mortimer B. Zuckerman has purchased the Daily News from Tronc, and he is a key player in the media company’s future.
As of the end of 2016, the Daily News had a circulation of more than 200,000. The Daily News is based in 4 New York Plaza, Lower Manhattan, and it is the ninth most widely circulated newspaper in the U.S. Besides covering New York, the Daily News also maintains local bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens.
A wooden bench resides in the lobby of the building where the Daily News was once located. Legendary boxing writer Jimmy Cannon once sat on the bench, and several other Daily News mainstays have sat on it over the years. Eventually, the bench was moved from its former headquarters on East 42nd Street to another location on West 33rd Street.
