Founded in 1919, Daily News is an American morning tabloid newspaper. The paper is best known for its sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and cartoons. The newspaper has also been noted for its high readership, and at one time was the largest daily in the United States. It is owned by Tronc, formerly Tribune Publishing Company.
Daily News, a tabloid newspaper from New York City, is well known for its use of strong loaded words in headlines, which often contain an accusation or indictment. Its editorial stance has long been described as moderate to liberal, though it occasionally takes on crusades that may not serve the paper well in maintaining its reputation for objectivity. In recent years it has developed a more progressive tone, presumably in response to the conservative polemics of its crosstown rival, the New York Post.
The paper is a member of the National Press Club and the International News Association. Its editorial staff is comprised of full and part-time journalists, as well as some freelancers. The paper’s website features articles, columns, and a searchable archive of past issues. The site offers subscribers access to articles and podcasts, as well as a subscription service for premium content.
