Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News has been on a mission to cover life in New York City for almost one hundred years. Over the decades, the paper has provided news to the voiceless, and cast wary eyes on the city’s five boroughs. Today, the publication prints 200,000 copies of the newspaper each day, and is one of the country’s most widely read newspapers. The paper also offers a digital replica of the print edition. This is the most convenient way to read the daily news, and it offers users the latest tools to share and interact with the news.
The Daily News has a number of local bureaus in Queens and Brooklyn. It also maintains a local newspaper bureau in the Bronx. In addition to delivering quality news and opinion, the newspaper includes sports coverage, entertainment, comics, and classified ads. Its online version allows readers to swipe between pages, and is available for computer and mobile devices. The interactive edition features a number of interactive features, including the ability to share stories and e-mail, and to download editions for offline reading.
In the 1930s, the New York Daily News was among the first newspapers in the country to use the Associated Press wirephoto service. In the 1940s, the paper became an advocate of conservative populism, and supported the isolationist policies of World War II. The paper espoused right-wing politics for nearly five decades, but as the circulation of the Daily News dwindled, it began shifting toward a more liberal position.
In 1991, the Tribune Company, which owned the Daily News, sold it to tronc. The publishing arm of the former corporation agreed to pay $1 for the paper, and has continued to be the owner of the Daily News. Since that time, the Daily News has exhibited a moderate-to-liberal editorial stance. The New York Times has described the paper’s editorial stance as “high-minded,” and has described the Daily News’ editorial stance as “populist.”
The Daily News has been awarded 11 Pulitzer Prizes for its work. The paper also receives a high AllSides Media Bias Rating of Left, which aligns with the left-wing agenda. The paper has also been referred to as the “first tabloid newspaper in the United States,” a phrase that is a reference to the lurid photographs that attracted readers. Its early days attracted the attention of photographers who found the subject matter in the 1920s plentiful in the United States. The Daily News is currently the ninth largest-circulated newspaper in the country, with a circulation of 200,000 copies.
The Daily News is headquartered at 4 New York Plaza in Lower Manhattan. The building was formerly known as the Daily News Building, and was built by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. The building is still a landmark in New York, and it is the home of the former Daily News subsidiary, WPIX-TV. The Daily News’ current owners, tronc, are Chicago-based media companies.
