The New York Daily News is an American newspaper based in the city of New York. The paper is the first daily tabloid printed in the United States and was once the largest circulation newspaper in the world. It is best known for its sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and entertainment news, but it also features intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics, a sports section, and an opinion section.
The Daily News has a long history of editorial independence. It has been described as a “highly centrist” publication with a “high-minded, if populist legacy”. It was initially a staunchly Republican paper during the early years of the Cold War and supported isolationism in the 1940s; later, it adopted a more liberal stance, becoming a competing alternative to the conservative Post.
In addition to national and local news, the New York Daily News is famous for its exclusives on the Yankees, Mets, Giants, and Jets. The paper has also long been a leader in coverage of patent and trademark cases, with daily summaries of all opinions issued by the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
Until 1995, the paper was located in 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, an official city and national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. It was the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films. The Daily News moved to 450 West 33rd Street (also known as 5 Manhattan West) in 1995, though the 42nd Street building remains as the location for its television subsidiary WPIX-TV.
