The Daily News

In this age of online news, it’s important to be aware of the reliability of the information you are reading. Some news websites can be biased based on political affiliation or influenced by advertisers. It is also important to consider the credibility of a particular newspaper when determining whether to read its articles. It’s also a good idea to use multiple sources of news to compare and contrast information.

The New York Daily News is a major American newspaper, founded in 1919 and once the largest daily newspaper in the United States. It has a reputation as a tough, investigative paper and has a long history of covering the city’s crime and politics. The newspaper has won many awards and recognition for its journalism, including the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary in 1996 for E.R. Shipp’s pieces on race and welfare issues, and for its coverage of the police beating of Abner Louima in 1998.

Its most famous front page headline was printed on October 30, 1975, following President Gerald Ford’s veto of a bankruptcy bailout for the city of New York. The headline read “FORD TO CITY: DROP DEAD”, and was credited with contributing to Ford’s subsequent defeat in the 1976 presidential election against Jimmy Carter. The paper was originally founded as a Republican-leaning publication, but has since moved toward a more centrist position.

During the 1930s, the Daily News expanded its operations into television and radio. It developed WPIX (Channel 11 in New York City), which took its call letters from the paper’s nickname, and later bought what became CBS Radio and TV affiliate WFAN-FM and AM flagship station WPIX-AM. The newspaper also owned the Manhattan headquarters of the Tribune Company, which included the old Daily News Building at 220 East 42nd Street, a New York City landmark designed by architects John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood.

In the late 1990s, the Daily News began to focus on its community coverage and won several more Pulitzer Prizes for its social commentary, including pieces by E.R. Shipp and Mike McAlary on race, poverty, and police brutality in New York City. The Daily News was also known for its hard-hitting political coverage and scoops, and its columnists included Charles Blow, Paul Krugman, William F. Buckley, and Lan Samantha Chang. The paper has also produced many successful alumni who have gone on to careers in journalism and public service, such as Garry Trudeau, Sargent Shriver, and Calvin Trillin. It is still a leading source of local news and sports in New York City. For Yale students, the Yale Daily News is published every weekday when classes are in session. It is the oldest college daily in the country and has an impressive roster of former student editors, writers, and contributors who have gone on to prominent careers in the media and politics, including Bill Buckley, George H.W. Bush, Joseph Lieberman, and Strobe Talbott. Its editorial staff and writers have won many awards and accolades, including the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Editorial Writing.
