A daily newspaper is a publication published on a regular basis, typically consisting of news and opinion. Most newspapers cover national and international events as well as local news. The news content is typically presented in the form of articles written by reporters and illustrated by photographs, artwork or diagrams. Newspapers may also include advertisements and editorial commentary. Newspapers are usually classified by the subject matter they cover and are often divided into sections including: political affairs; business and finance; crime, weather and natural disasters; science, medicine, computers and technology; sports; entertainment; society, food and fashion, home and clothing; and arts. Some publications are specialized in particular fields, such as science or religion.

The New York Daily News is an American morning tabloid newspaper founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson. As the first successful tabloid in the United States, it attracted readers by combining sensational stories of crime and scandal with lurid photographs and cartoons. In the 1930s it was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and employed a large staff of photographers. It was also a pioneer in color printing and used the technique to great effect. By the mid-20th century the paper was the most popular in the country, with a circulation exceeding 1.5 million. Its front page headline in 1975, after President Gerald Ford’s veto of the city bankruptcy plan, became famous as “FORD TO CITY: DROP DEAD”.

In 1978, when the Daily News was losing 145,000 subscribers per day, it was reported that union wages were devouring 44 percent of its revenue; the newspaper was able to make ends meet only by hiring non-union replacements and cutting staff salaries. In the 1990s, it was reported that it was losing over $115 million per year.

Today, the Daily News continues to be a leading source of news and information in the United States. Its online edition, the Daily News E-dition, is the most comprehensive digital version of the newspaper, offering a full range of interactive tools designed to enhance the reader experience. The E-dition is available via desktop and mobile devices.

Among other things, the E-dition features a complete archive of every daily issue since its inception in 1919. This archive includes more than three million articles, including news events, editorials and columns. In addition, the E-dition includes a collection of videos and multimedia.

The New York Daily News is one of the most-read newspapers in the world, with a total circulation of about 2.4 million, including print and digital editions.
