Daily News

Daily news is a term used to refer to a newspaper that is published on a daily basis. It often contains information about current events that are of interest to the general public. Daily newspapers are popular among many people because they can help to keep them informed about the world around them. There are many different types of daily newspapers, including print and online versions. Some examples of daily newspapers include The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post.

The Yale Daily News Historical Archive provides access to digitized versions of printed issues of the Yale Daily News, the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States. The digitized archive contains full-text articles that are scanned from original print volumes held by the Yale Library and collected in PDF format from YDN’s website.

Founded in 1919, the Daily News was America’s first tabloid and reached its peak circulation in 1947, when it sold over 2.4 million copies a day. It was also the first American newspaper to use color in its newsprint, and it was the pioneer of a number of innovations in reporting, including using large photographs and titillating scandalous stories. Its editorial staff has included such writers as William F. Buckley, Lan Samantha Chang, John Hersey, Joseph Lieberman, Sargent Shriver, Paul Steiger, and Calvin Trillin, who have gone on to careers in journalism and politics.

By the 1970s, the Daily News had become the most prominent of New York’s tabloids and began competing with the even more sensational rival the New York Post. It gained a reputation for protecting the First Amendment rights of its readers and for speaking out against the abuses of power by New York City officials. It won a Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary in 1996 for E.R. Shipp’s pieces on race, welfare and social issues and another in 1998 for Mike McAlary’s coverage of the police beating of Haitian immigrant Abner Louima.

In the 1990s, the Daily News began to develop its electronic publishing system and was one of the first metropolitan papers in the country to offer a fully electronic edition on the Internet. Its “Daily News on the Web” remained in operation until 1999, when it was replaced by its companion site, The New York Daily News Online.

Today, the Daily News continues to provide intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, a comprehensive sports section and comics, as well as national and local news and opinion sections. Its award-winning reporters, columnists and opinion formers have a firm grip on the city of New York, as well as the world beyond. The paper has a special devotion to the Yankees, Mets, Giants and Jets, and is renowned for its edgy and outrageous headlines. It has also established itself as a leader in the coverage of international news. Its website allows visitors to read the newspaper for free. Its mobile version offers users the ability to download articles for offline reading, as well as to share their favorite stories with friends via email.
