daily news

Daily News is a South African newspaper with a reputation for independence and bold journalism. It is published by Independent Media and covers local and international news, politics, crime, sport, business, property and celebrity gossip. It has a daily circulation of over 1.4 million. Each edition of the newspaper includes a brief overview of global news developments with CFR analysis – the perfect antidote to news overload. It’s available online, in app form and by email each day.

Each Daily News article contains comprehension and critical thinking questions found below the story, as well as “Background” and “Resources” (including video clips and maps) to help students understand the news stories. In addition, each article contains the Yale Daily News E-dition version of the questions to support classroom use.

Founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News, New York City’s first successful tabloid newspaper attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal and violence, lurid photographs, and cartoons and entertainment features. Its success helped to usher in the era of the morning daily newspaper. Despite long-running circulation battles with rivals, it reached its peak in 1947, when it was the eleventh-highest circulated newspaper in the United States. For many years the newspaper was located in the 42nd Street Daily News Building designed by architects John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. The building was later used as the model for the Daily Planet in the Superman films.

In the late twentieth century, the newspaper suffered declining circulation and revenue and was owned by publisher Mortimer Zuckerman. The paper was sold to Tronc in 2017 for a reported $1.

The Daily News was often critical of government and big businesses, especially the New York Stock Exchange, which it accused of operating as a private cartel. Its editorials and opinion pieces also focused on issues of social injustice. Its coverage of the Wall Street Crash of 1929, which was triggered by the collapse of the overvalued stocks that had been fuelling an artificially inflated stock market, is considered to be one of the most important reports of its time.
