In the early 1920s, the New York Daily News was a leading newspaper in the United States and was one of the first American tabloids. The paper devoted much space to investigative journalism and covered scandals, including political wrongdoing such as the Teapot Dome Scandal and social intrigue such as Wallis Simpson’s romance with King Edward VIII, and was an early adopter of wirephotography. The newspaper also featured a variety of sports and cultural coverage.
The Daily News is currently owned by tronc, which acquired the paper in 2017. Founded in 1919, the paper was the first U.S. daily printed in tabloid format and was the ninth most widely circulated daily newspaper in the country in 2010. The Daily News is based in New York City, and its editorial stance is generally moderate to liberal. It is often contrasted with the right-wing New York Post.

The journalists are demonstrating outside Workville, a co-working space that serves as the News’s replacement for its Lower Manhattan office that was closed in 2020. The workers say they’re fed up with owner Alden Global Capital’s commitment to shrinking the newspaper.
