The Daily News Archive

daily news

The Daily News is a tabloid newspaper based in New York City. Founded in 1919, it was the first successful daily printed in tabloid format and reached its highest circulation level in 1947 at 2.4 million copies per day. The paper was noted for sensational crime and scandal stories, lurid photographs, and cartoons as well as national and international politics. The newspaper also published many books and a variety of other entertainment features. The paper was also an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and developed a staff of photographers.

In the 1980s and 1990s, the newspaper struggled to compete with its even more sensational rival tabloid, the New York Post, which had long held the city’s top circulation spot. Nevertheless, the Daily News was still one of the most popular newspapers in the United States by the end of the 20th century, despite its lower circulation numbers. The newspaper’s founder, Mortimer Zuckerman, had built the Daily News into a large media company, which included radio and television as well as the newspaper.

The Yale Daily News Historical Archive contains digitized copies of the printed Yale Daily News from its founding in 1878 to 1996, and later issues from the same year until 2021. The archive is available on the internet, and the complete text of each issue can be downloaded. The archive is an important resource for historians, researchers, students, and teachers. The website is a project of the Yale Library and is supported by a generous donation from an anonymous alumnus.

Each Daily News article includes “Comprehension and Critical Thinking Questions” that are designed to encourage students to analyze and think critically about the news story. Additional “Background” and “Resources” (including video clips, maps and links) are provided below the questions to help students gain a deeper understanding of each news event. In addition, each article is followed by a series of “Answers” that are designed to stimulate discussion in the classroom.

Educators can use these Daily News articles in their classrooms to teach a wide range of topics, including current events, history, social studies, civics, and literature. In addition, these articles are ideal for use in a variety of teaching methods and can be easily adapted to fit different learning styles. Please feel free to share these articles with your fellow educators and students. If you would like to support this important website, please consider making a donation to Student News Daily.
