Daily news is a type of newspaper that publishes information about current events. Its content focuses on politics and economics, the environment, health, and technology.
The New York Daily News is an American morning daily tabloid newspaper published in the city of New York, United States. It was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, and was the first United States daily printed in tabloid format. It reached its peak circulation in 1947 at 2.4 million copies per day, and is now the eleventh-most-read daily newspaper in the United States.
History and background
The paper began as a small newspaper, but by 1928 it had a staff of more than 200. It was a major competitor of the New York Post, which also printed in tabloid format. It was also the first newspaper to use a wirephoto service, and was an early user of photography as a form of journalism.
During the 1920s, the Daily News devoted much attention to lurid photographs of crime and scandal, and its coverage was sensational. In 1928, the paper’s photographer snapped a photograph of Ruth Snyder being executed in the electric chair. The newspaper later featured the photo in a front page article.
Today, the Daily News is still a leading newspaper in the city. It has a large editorial staff and a large number of writers. It also produces a variety of entertainment features, including comics and classified ads.
ScienceDaily, a division of the New York Daily News, provides breaking news about the latest discoveries in science, health and technology from top universities, research organizations, and scientific journals. Visitors can browse more than 500 individual topics, grouped into 12 main sections.
In addition to its print publication, the Daily News owns television station WPIX (Channel 11), radio stations in New York City and Brooklyn, and a website. It maintains local bureaus in the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn and has a presence at City Hall and One Police Plaza in Manhattan. The paper’s editorial stance is “flexibly centrist” and has been described as a moderately liberal alternative to the right-leaning New York Post.
