The Daily News

The Daily News, or simply the Daily, was an American morning tabloid newspaper founded in 1919. The New York City-based publication was the first successful tabloid in the United States, and for many decades dominated the metropolitan press. The Daily News became known for sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and comics and other entertainment features, as well as editorials that pushed social or political boundaries. It also gained a reputation for supporting the First Amendment and protecting the rights of New Yorkers, especially those who were considered to lack one.

The newspaper was an early adopter of the Associated Press wirephoto service, and developed a large staff of photographers. The News was especially popular in the 1930s, when it specialized in sensational pictorial coverage of urban crime and political wrongdoing, including a notorious story about the alleged murder of a New York City police officer by two Puerto Rican immigrants. Its popularity grew through the 1940s, and in 1947 the paper reached its circulation peak, with a daily circulation of more than 2 million copies. The brassy, pictorial Daily News “led all the rest”, Time magazine wrote at the time.

In the 1970s, the Daily News grew even more popular with a shift to a more liberal political stance. In 1975, it rolled out what would become its most famous headline—a front page headline after President Gerald Ford had vetoed a bail-out for New York City that included financial guarantees; it read: “FORD TO CITY: DROP DEAD.” The repositioning of the Daily News as an advocate of the underdog was reinforced in 1976 when the paper ran a front page photo of a New York City homeless man named Jay McInerney lying dead on a sidewalk.

During the 1980s, the Daily News shifted its focus from urban crime and politics to cultural issues and celebrities. It also began to invest in its business, establishing what would become television station WPIX in 1948 (its call letters were based on the News’ nickname, “New York’s Picture Newspaper”) and purchasing a stake in the radio station CBS-FM in 1964. In 1985, the News introduced a completely electronic publishing system. It also developed a successful national and international advertising operation, and in 1995 purchased the Indian news website DNA and its affiliates.

The Daily News currently publishes a free morning current affairs video on YouTube that covers important events of the day from an UPSC point of view. It also provides a handout of the analysis that is discussed in the video to facilitate further research and study. The Daily News also offers a subscription service for students and educators that allows them to access a digital version of the newspaper with additional multimedia content. Lastly, the Daily News also carries out extensive local and foreign reporting in partnership with other media organizations. The newspaper has been published in several languages, and was the first major daily to establish an office outside of its New York headquarters in Mumbai, India.
