Founded in 1919, the Daily News was the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States. It attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal and violence, lurid photographs, and cartoons. It also carried local and national politics, classified ads, and entertainment features.
The News was the first to print on color paper, and the first to include a comics section. It was one of the first newspapers to print on both sides of its pages, an innovation that reduced printing costs by allowing two stories on one sheet.
In 1948 the News established WPIX, Channel 11 in New York City (whose call letters were based on its nickname “New York’s Picture Newspaper”). The television station remains in the old Daily News building. In addition to the main editorial offices in Manhattan, the News maintains bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens; within New York City Hall and at One Police Plaza; and at various state and federal courthouses throughout the state.
It has a staff of more than 200 journalists and an online presence that includes its website and apps for mobile devices. The New York Daily News has the largest digital subscription base among any American newspaper, with a reach of nearly 10 million unique visitors each month. The newspaper has a circulation of more than 800,000, making it the ninth most widely read daily newspaper in the United States. It is owned by tronc, the media company formed in 2017 from Tribune Publishing.
Currently, the paper is facing a series of challenges, including a rapidly growing online audience that has been pushing traditional print advertising sales to the side. In response, the New York Daily News has begun expanding its digital offerings with original content and video, a strategy that it hopes will offset declining print advertising revenue.
The Yale Daily News is an independent student newspaper that publishes Monday through Friday during the academic year, and serves the Yale and New Haven communities. It is the oldest and most comprehensive of the college daily newspapers in the United States, and is financially and editorially independent of the university. In addition to the newspaper, it produces a weekly magazine called the Weekend, a Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue, and special issues each year celebrating Yale’s Indigenous, Black, AAPI and Latinx communities in collaboration with the school’s cultural centers and affiliated student groups.
The newspaper has a AllSides Media Bias Rating of Left. Sources with a Left bias favor liberal, progressive or left-wing ideas and/or policies and are often contrasted with the right-biased New York Post. The editorial stance of the Daily News is considered moderate-to-liberal.
