In the early 1900s, the Daily News developed a huge staff of photographers. By 1930, the paper had reached a peak circulation of 1.5 million copies a day. At that time, the Daily News had a reputation for a “high-minded” editorial stance that contrasted with the right-wing New York Post.
During the 1930s, the Daily News was one of the first newspapers to use the Associated Press wirephoto service. As a result, the newspaper’s coverage included a series of lurid photographs, which attracted readers.
During World War II, the Daily News espoused conservative populism, supporting the cause of isolationism. During the 1990s, the Daily News had a circulation of over two million. But the paper’s circulation steadily declined.
