Founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News, The Daily News is one of the oldest and largest circulation newspapers in the United States. The paper’s success was largely dependent on its aggressive and innovative coverage of crime and other issues that were of interest to readers. The Daily News continues to provide strong local news coverage and coverage of sports.
The paper has earned several awards for writing, photography, and commentary. In 2017, The Daily News received a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. The newspaper has also been awarded several awards for advertising. It has also been named one of the top-selling newspapers in the United States. The Daily News is published in New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, with several local bureaus in Brooklyn, Bronx, and Queens.
In the 1930s, New York Daily News was one of the first newspapers in the United States to use Associated Press wirephoto services. It was also one of the first to be printed in tabloid format. It reached its peak circulation in 1947 with 2.4 million copies a day.
The Daily News was also a staunchly conservative newspaper. It espoused conservative populism from the 1940s through the 1960s. In the mid-1970s, the Daily News began shifting its editorial stance. It became more liberal and moderate. The paper has also endorsed Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. However, The Daily News is no longer one of the top selling newspapers in the United States. It has also been in financial trouble for many years.
In 2017, the New York Daily News was bought by Tribune Publishing, which also owns The Wall Street Journal and The Los Angeles Times. It is now part of Johnson Newspaper Corp. A family owned media company, Johnson Newspaper Corp. publishes newspapers and magazines in New York state, the Hudson Valley, and the North Country. The company also publishes a variety of other articles and services.
The Daily News was a major player in the circulation battle with The New York Post. The paper was known for its sensational coverage of crime and social intrigue. It also was a popular paper for its cartoons and lurid photographs. It also gained popularity when it debunked corruption and other wrongdoing.
As a major publisher, The Daily News has also endorsed numerous politicians and presidential candidates. Among its recent endorsements are Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, and Mitt Romney for president. The Daily News also has a reputation for featuring opinion formers in its editorials.
