The Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college newspaper and has been financially and editorially independent since its founding on January 28, 1878. The News publishes Monday through Friday during the academic year in New Haven and Yale. Each year the paper produces a Commencement issue, the First Year Issue and special issues celebrating Yale’s Indigenous, Black, Latino and Asian American communities in partnership with those communities. In addition, the News offers a weekly WKND supplement and an annual Yale-Harvard game day issue.

This is an era of profound disruption in the media. Journalists are being laid off by the thousands and their newspapers are closing in large numbers. Newsrooms are shrinking as the business of journalism changes dramatically. In many parts of the country, local newspapers are disappearing altogether, creating a kind of vacuum that leaves communities without reliable information about what’s going on around them.

In a town like McKeesport, Pennsylvania, where the local newspaper went out of business in 2015, citizens are trying to make sense of what’s happening in their community as they struggle to separate facts from gossip on social media. In Death of the Daily News, Andrew Conte writes with perceptiveness and empathy about this troubling phenomenon, showing us what it’s like when a local newspaper dies and how a small, resilient town attempts to fill the gap.

No one covers the Yankees, Mets and Giants like the Daily News. Read the Daily News wherever and whenever you want – online, in our app or by email. Each Daily News article includes comprehension and critical thinking questions, found below the story. This is a part of The Week’s commitment to help students learn from the news. We believe the best way to do this is by encouraging students to read the news critically and think for themselves. Each Daily News article also contains a “Background” and “Resources” section to help teachers use the news in their classrooms.
