The Daily News


Founded in 1919, the Daily News considers itself “New York’s hometown newspaper.” It has been known for zesty headlines — perhaps most famously, “Ford to City: Drop Dead” during New York’s financial troubles in 1975 — and a mix of city coverage, gossip and star columnists including Jimmy Breslin and Liz Smith. The paper also has a long history of covering the city’s sports teams, including the Yankees and Mets. It has won a number of Pulitzer Prizes, including one this year for investigating how the city used an obscure law to evict families from their homes.

During the first half of the 21st century, like all printed newspapers, the Daily News struggled to adapt to changes in consumer habits and advertising revenue. It faced increased competition from online news and social media sites, as well as a muscular hometown tabloid rival, the New York Post. On top of that, the paper has seen its print circulation decline. Online ad revenue has picked up, but not enough to offset the losses in print readership and traditional ad sales.

In September 2016, the Daily News suffered a major setback when its print circulation fell below a million for the first time in its nearly century-long history. It took on a new strategy, rebranding itself with a more provocative tone and style and aiming its content directly at the current president, rehashing the most famous Daily News headline of all time in the direction of Donald Trump: “TRUMP TO WORLD: DROP DEAD.”

While the paper has continued to publish its main paper during this era of turmoil, circulation continues to decline. In 2017, the newspaper saw its profits wiped out entirely. Former owner Tribune Publishing Company (now Tronc) repurchased the Daily News in September of that year, but it quickly culled its staff and slashed salaries.

The Daily News Sentiment Index is an indicator of economic sentiment based on lexical analysis of news articles. This index has been developed by Buckman, Shapiro, Sudhof and Wilson (2022).

The Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college daily newspaper. The newspaper is published Monday through Friday during the academic year and serves both the community of Yale and New Haven, Connecticut. The News is editorially and financially independent from the University. In addition to the main newspaper, the News publishes a Friday supplement, WKND, and several special issues each year such as the Yale-Harvard game day issue, the Commencement issue and the first year issue in collaboration with the University’s cultural centers and affiliated student groups. The News is available on campus, at local businesses and restaurants, at grocery stores and through subscriptions. The website is updated with a mix of original news and content from the newspaper, along with aggregated and social media posts. All of the content is carefully vetted for quality and accuracy by the editors. The site also includes comprehension and critical thinking questions, which are found below each article.
