The Daily News

Daily News is an American newspaper founded in 1919 and known for its zesty headlines (perhaps most famously, “Ford to City: Drop Dead” during New York’s financial woes in 1975), celebrity gossip, city coverage, and star columnists such as Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill. It has won 11 Pulitzer Prizes, including one shared with ProPublica this year for exposing how the city improperly used eviction law to remove hundreds of residents from their homes.

The newspaper is published in both print and digital formats, with the digital edition providing mobile-friendly access on tablets and smartphones. The newspaper’s website features a variety of news and features, including video and multimedia content. It also allows readers to comment on articles, share their opinions with friends, and subscribe to newsletters. The website also contains a directory of local restaurants and businesses.

It covers all facets of the world’s politics, business, and culture, with an emphasis on the city of New York. The New York Daily News is often considered the city’s hometown paper, with a strong reader base in Manhattan and its surrounding areas. The newspaper was established in 1919 and is currently owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.

News Corporation acquired the newspaper in 1986, when it was losing money and readers. After buying the newspaper, it began reinvesting in the company to restore its earnings potential. The Daily News also began focusing on more sensational and titillating stories, and it expanded its photography department to include more staff photographers.

By 1994, the newspaper was able to turn a profit and was once again competing with USA Today for the largest daily circulation in the country. Its editorial leadership included prominent journalists such as Jimmy Breslin and Liz Smith. In addition to focusing on the local business scene, it was known for its New York sports coverage and its extensive coverage of the Yankees, Mets, and Giants.

In 1978, the Daily News was impacted by a multi-union strike that lasted over three months, and it saw a decline in daily circulation of more than 145,000. In 1995, the newspaper moved to a more modern location, which is still referred to as the News Building and serves as the model for the Daily Planet building in the Superman films.

The current News Building was designed by Raymond Hood and John Mead Howells, who were the architects of the Chicago Tribune Tower a few years earlier. The building was used as a filming location for the first two Superman films and is a New York City landmark.

The Daily News has faced declining print circulation in recent years, as many people read news online instead of traditional newspapers. However, online ad revenue has helped to offset this decrease in overall revenue. The News has also struggled with the same shifts in readership and advertising that have plagued the entire newspaper industry. Despite these challenges, the Daily News remains one of the largest tabloids in the United States.
