The Daily News

The Daily News is an American newspaper based in New York City. It was founded in 1919 and was the first tabloid newspaper published in the United States. The newspaper is currently owned by tronc, which purchased the paper in 2017 for $1. The newspaper is known for its moderate to liberal bias and has a history of publishing factual information with loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor left-leaning political causes. This bias has caused many readers to trust the newspaper and its stories, however the newspaper is criticized for not adequately checking facts and reporting on them. The Daily News is also known for being highly partisan in its editorial positions and does not provide balanced coverage of controversial issues, especially those involving politics.

As of 2022, the Daily News ranks fourth in national newspaper circulation behind The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and the Washington Post. Its digital readership is estimated at 8.8 million unique visitors per month according to the website comScore. However, some of the largest newspaper publishers, including The Times and the Journal, do not report their digital readership data to comScore, so these figures are likely underestimated.

Each article in the Daily News contains “Comprehension and Critical Thinking Questions” found below the headline as well as “Background” and “Resources” for students to further explore the story. This helps students engage with the news and understand how it affects their community. Teachers can also use the articles as a starting point for a classroom discussion or debate on topics and issues in the news.

The Daily News is a daily newspaper with headquarters in Manhattan, New York City, that covers local and international news. The paper is known for its sensational headlines and in-depth investigations. The newspaper has a long history of investigative journalism and is considered to be one of the best newspapers for exposing corruption in government. In the 20th century, it fought a lengthy circulation battle with its rival, the New York Post, and at times was at the forefront of tabloid news.

The current editor-in-chief of the paper is Philip Delves Broughton, who took over in September 2017. The Daily News has won a number of awards for its journalism, including two Pulitzer Prizes and a Peabody Award. In addition to its general news coverage, the Daily News has a strong focus on entertainment, sports, and celebrity news. The newspaper also publishes several special issues each year, such as the Yale Daily News Magazine and special editions around events such as the Yale-Harvard game and graduation.
