Daily news is an exciting and important aspect of the world we live in. It enables us to keep informed and stay connected with the people around us, regardless of our age or ability level.
It also helps us become more active in our communities and engage with those who are different from ourselves. This is why we have created Breaking News, a feature of our weekly newspaper that keeps subscribers up-to-date on breaking world, sports and entertainment news stories.
Breaking News supports a wide range of reading skills, including comprehension and critical thinking. Each article contains a “background” and “resources” section to help students find additional information and make connections between the story and their own lives.
Founded in 1919, the Daily News was once one of the most influential newspapers in the United States. Its tabloid format, which was the first of its kind in America, attracted readers with sensational crime and scandal coverage, lurid photographs, cartoons and other entertaining features.
The Daily News, then based in 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, was a predecessor of the New York Post and eventually the New York Times. It was a major force in the city’s media industry, as well as a key player in the nation’s circulation wars.
In the mid-1920s, the Daily News devoted an increasing amount of attention to political wrongdoing and social intrigue. It was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service, and had a large staff of photographers.
As the city grew, the paper also began to expand its coverage of local news. In addition to its strong daily and Sunday newspapers, the paper began to publish an assortment of newsletters and specialized publications.
For example, the Daily News ran a series of articles on the Teapot Dome Scandal that was very popular in the 1920s. It also delved into social issues and the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII, which led to their abdication.
Today, the Daily News is owned by Chicago-based media company Tronc. It has lost its title as the largest newspaper in the country and its name is no longer used on the front page, but it still remains a popular and authoritative source of local news and opinion.
It is a major media outlet in New York City and the entire metropolitan area, as well as the most widely read newspaper in the United States. Its circulation was more than 2.4 million copies a day, as of 2019.
The paper’s editorial stance is flexible and centrist; it is not a left-wing or right-wing publication. In fact, it is sometimes described as a moderately liberal alternative to the New York Post (which until 1980 had been a Democratic bastion). The Daily News was once a staunch Republican newspaper, with a long record of support for isolationism and conservative populism.
