The Daily News is a morning tabloid newspaper published in New York City. It was founded in 1919 and is currently owned by Tribune Publishing. During its heyday, it had the largest circulation in the United States. Since then, it has been in financial trouble. Today, it is the ninth most widely circulated newspaper in the country.
The Daily News has won a number of Pulitzer Prizes for its commentary and feature writing. In 2017, it was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. As an example of its coverage, the New York Daily News is renowned for its sensational crime coverage, lurid photographs, and satirical cartoons.
During the 1940s and 1960s, the Daily News espoused conservative populism. It was a staunch Republican newspaper, but later became more liberal. When the New York Post was a right-wing, opportunistic paper, the Daily News was a moderate-liberal alternative. A few years after the Post’s closure, the Daily News reached a peak circulation of 2.4 million copies a day.
Over the past two decades, the Daily News has been exhibiting a moderate-to-liberal bias. That hasn’t stopped it from being one of the most widely read newspapers in the world.
The Daily News has been a pioneer in tabloid journalism. This is evident in its use of classified ads, opinion formers, and large, lurid photographs. But the Daily News has also been able to provide strong sports coverage.
Even with its financial troubles, the Daily News has continued to offer strong local news coverage. Throughout the history of the paper, it has been able to maintain its strong local bureaus in Queens and Brooklyn.
While the Daily News has changed a great deal over the years, its mission remains unchanged. After all, it was established to cover life in New York. Regardless of what happens to the publication in the future, the Daily News will continue to document the lives of people in New York.
Although the Daily News has been around for many decades, its future is uncertain. As with other newspapers, technology has largely disrupted the industry. Earlier this year, Daily News journalists worked remotely during the coronavirus pandemic. Now, the paper is in the midst of a major transition.
The Daily News was once a bustling newsroom. Several journalistic giants have spent their careers working there. These include Frank Knox, a former secretary of the navy under Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Jimmy Cannon, a boxing writer. But the Daily News no longer has a newsroom that could hold the city’s attention with one headline.
Andrew Conte’s Death of the Daily News offers readers a fascinating look at what happens to a town when a newspaper dies. It also shows that, in a world of social media and digital media, local journalism can still be viable.
This book is a rich, accessible read, and Conte has written a great book. He has a deep knowledge of national and local news, and he approaches his subject with empathy. Whether you’re a scholarly reader or an ordinary citizen, this book will help you understand the impact that losing a local newspaper has on the community.
