The Daily News

0 Comments 12:17 pm

The daily news is a type of publication that contains news and information about current events. It is printed and distributed to the public every day. The newspaper can be a source of entertainment, as well as information about the world and society. Some newspapers contain a combination of both information and entertainment, while others focus on one or the other.

A newspaper can be found in a variety of places, including stores and restaurants. It can also be found on the Internet, where it is often available for free. Most major cities have several different daily newspapers, including the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times.

In the 1920s, the New York Daily News became the largest newspaper in the United States, with circulation exceeding 1.5 million. Its success was due in part to sensational pictorial coverage and a willingness to go further than its competitors in order to make an attention-grabbing front page. For example, in 1928 the News photographed Ruth Snyder during her electrocution for murdering her husband; it became famous for its photo of Snyder mid-electrocution and the headline “DEAD!”

Founded by Joseph Medill Patterson, who was copublisher of the Chicago Tribune with his cousin Robert R. McCormick, the News emphasized political wrongdoing and social intrigue like the Teapot Dome Scandal and the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to his abdication. It was also an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and employed a large staff of photographers.

By the 1990s, however, the News’s fortunes were in decline; its circulation had fallen below half a million and the paper was nearly bankrupt. A wealthy philanthropist donated $60 million to purchase the News and its printing facilities, which were then operated by a subsidiary called Tronc. Under the leadership of publisher Mortimer Zuckerman, the News adopted a more serious tabloid format and boosted its profits.

The News was also a pioneer in television and radio. In 1948 it established WPIX (Channel 11 in New York City), whose call letters were based on its nickname of “New York’s Picture Newspaper.” It also bought what became WFAN-FM as an FM simulcast of its AM namesake. In addition, the News at one time maintained local bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, and shared offices within One Police Plaza with other New York City news agencies.
