The Daily News is a daily tabloid newspaper published in New York City. It was once the largest circulation newspaper in the United States. In the 1920s, the Daily News attracted readers with its sensational coverage of crime and social intrigue.
Today, the Daily News covers New York, sports and opinion. Its interactive edition offers a virtual copy of the print newspaper that can be downloaded and read on mobile devices. Users can swipe through pages and share their favorite stories with their friends. While the newspaper is still considered a “populist” paper, its editorial stance has shifted to become more progressive.
Before its sale to Tribune Publishing in 2017, The Daily News had been a financially struggling news organization. A number of its journalists were uncertain about what would come next. For example, Clifford Ross had previously covered Manhattan, Staten Island and the Staten Island Advance. He was also an award-winning journalist.
When the News was still in business, it was based in Jersey City, NJ. It had a circulation of 1.5 million by 1930. By the end of the decade, it had reached a peak of 2.4 million copies. During the 1940s and 1950s, the paper espoused conservative populism.
However, in the mid-1970s, the Daily News began shifting to become more liberal. This began in part with Jim Rich’s reinvigoration of the tabloid as a neo-liberal answer to the right-wing New York Times.
The Daily News continues to be a powerful presence in New York. The newspaper has won several Pulitzer Prizes for commentary and feature writing. One of the most notable is the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.
The Daily News has become an indispensable source of information for many people. The newspaper has a popular online section and comics. As of 2016, it has a circulation of more than 200,000.
There are also a number of special issues of the newspaper each year. Among them are the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue, the Commencement Issue, the First Year Issue and the Indigenous communities issue. Several of its student contributors have gone on to distinguished careers in journalism.
The Daily News has a number of local bureaus in Queens. In addition, its interactive edition is available on desktops and mobile devices. Some of its most popular features include the option to download an edition to read on a computer or device when offline.
The Daily News has also won a number of awards for its reporting. Recently, it has received the Sidney Hillman Foundation Award for Social Justice Reporting.
In addition to its regular coverage, the newspaper has featured prominent photographs for entertainment purposes. At one point, the Daily News had a photographer who strapped a camera to his leg when he took a photo of a person being executed.
The Daily News is a bold newspaper, which has won a number of awards for its presentation and commentary. Despite its declining print circulation, it remains a top-selling newspaper.
