Daily news articles present a summary of current events and issues. Each article includes comprehension and critical thinking questions that help readers understand the story. Additionally, we provide “Background” and “Resources” (including video clips, maps and links) to help students further explore the topics. We also offer “Essays” and “Writing Tips” to support students in developing their own news stories.
Each day, the New York Daily News publishes the latest local, national and international news as well as feature articles and editorials. In addition, the newspaper features comics, a classified section and a sports page. The paper is known for its intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip and a strong opinion section. Its editorial stance is described as “flexibly centrist” with a high-minded, if populist, legacy.
The Daily News has had a long history of success in the United States, publishing its first issue on January 10, 1919. The newspaper aimed to appeal to the general public and was not afraid of tackling controversial issues such as political wrongdoing, such as the Teapot Dome scandal; social intrigue, such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to his abdication; and entertainment news such as Broadway and movie reviews.
In the early twentieth century, the paper was one of the most widely circulated newspapers in the world. It was known for its large and prominent photographs, especially for news, entertainment and sports. It was also an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and developed its own staff of photographers.
Today, the New York Daily News is published in a building on East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, an official city and landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. The building served as the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films. The Daily News’s editorial stance has changed over the years and is now a moderately liberal alternative to its right-wing competitor, the New York Times.
