The Daily News at Yale University

Daily News is a tabloid newspaper founded in 1924. It was the first American newspaper printed in tabloid format and had a peak circulation of 2.4 million copies a day in 1947. It was named after its predecessor, the Illustrated Daily News, which had been in existence from 1855 to 1906. The newspaper primarily covers news and current events with intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics, and sports, but also includes national and international news.

The Daily News was once one of the most widely read newspapers in the world, and its name was often associated with New York City. It was one of the pioneering publications to use photographs as major features and also was a pioneer in advertising. It is well known for its editorial and investigative journalism, as well as its extensive local coverage. In addition to its main paper, the Daily News has several weekly supplements and special editions.

As a part of its commitment to its readers, The Daily News offers a variety of free, convenient online products including e-editions for tablets and phones. These digital versions of the newspaper have the same content as the print version, but with the added benefit of being customizable to your needs. In addition, the e-editions include interactive maps and videos that help readers understand the news and connect with it in more ways.

Each article in the Daily News contains comprehension and critical thinking questions to help students better comprehend what they are reading. The questions appear beneath each article and are accessible to all students. Each question is accompanied by “Background” and “Resources” (including video clips, maps and links) to help provide additional context. The Daily News also provides “Daily News Digests” which are compilations of the most important articles in the past 24 hours.

This website has been curated by the Yale University Library and is supported in part by a generous gift from an anonymous Yale College alumnus to support the maintenance and expansion of this unique collection.
