Daily News For UPSC Preparation

The Daily News is an American newspaper founded in 1919. It is New York City’s hometown paper, informing everyday people about their city and the world around them. It is known for its zesty headlines and has a long history of political wrongdoing, social intrigue (like the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to his abdication), and star columnists like Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill. It also has intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics, and a sports section.

In addition, it has a strong focus on art and culture. Aspirants who want to excel in their UPSC preparation should make reading the daily news an integral part of their day-to-day routine. Not just skimming headlines but understanding the nuances of each news item and how it connects to broader contemporary issues is key. For this, aspirants must read quality newspapers and watch programs that delve into daily newspaper analysis.

With the onset of the digital age, many people have switched to online news sources to keep up with the latest happenings in the world. Online news sites provide information on a variety of topics including local, national, and international news, as well as entertainment, business, and weather updates. Some websites even offer video and audio streaming of current events.

Some popular online news websites include the Washington Post, CNN, and BBC. Besides providing breaking news, some of them also provide opinion pieces and commentary on different issues. They are often free to use and allow users to sign up for their email newsletters.

Aside from online news, daily newspapers still remain a staple of the American society. Unlike the national and regional newspapers, daily papers are often focused on local news and cover events in their respective areas. They are also known for their large circulation and readership, especially in large metropolitan cities.

For example, the New York Daily News is one of the most widely read newspapers in the United States with a daily circulation of 2.4 million. Despite its popularity, the paper has struggled to survive as readers and advertisers have shifted to the Internet. The Daily News has also faced competition from its muscular hometown tabloid rival, the New York Post, owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. In 2015, Daily News owner Mort Zuckerman was considering selling the newspaper but ultimately decided to keep it.
