The Daily News

Daily News

The Daily News is a New York City newspaper that is owned by the Tribune Publishing Company. It was founded in 1919 and is the first tabloid newspaper published in the United States. The paper specializes in sensational crime and political news coverage, with a focus on social issues. Its motto is “New York’s Picture Newspaper.”

The newspaper’s editorial stance leans to the left, with a liberal populist legacy. It was long locked in a circulation battle with its rival, the New York Post, which is even more sensational. The Daily News has also been a strong supporter of isolationism and of conservative populism, especially in the 1940s and 1950s.

Located in the heart of downtown New York City, the Daily News was once the largest city newspaper in America. Its original headquarters, at 450 West 33rd Street, straddled the tracks that ran into Pennsylvania Station. The building that replaced it is now a part of the One Police Plaza complex.

As the newspaper grew, it added several features, including celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics, a sports section, and an opinion page. Its focus on local crime and politics made it a favorite of city residents. Eventually, it became known as the world’s most influential newspaper and a model for other tabloid newspapers.

In the 1970s, the Daily News began to shift its focus and became more moderately liberal, in contrast to its right-wing competitors. Its coverage of the 1975 kidnapping of Wallis Simpson and her subsequent abdication from the British throne led to a public outcry that resulted in changes to British law.

Today, the Daily News is the only major American city newspaper with its own TV station. It has a large online presence and has an extensive print distribution network. Its digital edition is available on both desktop and mobile devices.
