What is a Daily News?

Daily news is a type of newspaper that is published on a regular basis. These newspapers generally contain information about current events that are taking place around the world as well as some opinion pieces. Many of these papers are also printed in different languages so that they can reach a larger audience. Daily newspapers can be found in many places including on the internet and at local newsstands.

Daily newspapers are often read by people who want to stay up to date with current events and news. These newspapers usually contain information about a variety of topics, such as politics, sports, and weather. They also often contain opinion pieces and editorials that offer different viewpoints on a topic.

Founded in 1919, the New York City-based Daily News considers itself “New York’s Hometown Newspaper.” The paper has long been known for zesty headlines — including “Ford to City: Drop Dead” during the city’s financial woes in 1975 — celebrity gossip, intense city news coverage and star columnists like Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill. In addition to its print edition, the Daily News has a website and offers numerous online-only subscription options.

The Daily News has also been a leader in investigative journalism. In the last two decades, it has won a total of 11 Pulitzer Prizes, including this year’s award for public service journalism, shared with ProPublica for uncovering how police used an obscure law to illegally evict hundreds of residents in New York City. The paper has also been a pioneer in launching new platforms to distribute its content, such as its free e-newsletter, NYC Daily.

In 2021, an anonymous Yale College alumnus made a significant gift to support the Daily News Historical Archive project and facilitate its migration to a modern platform. The Yale Daily News Historical Archive contains all issues of the newspaper from its founding in 1886 to the present, along with an extensive collection of photos, maps and other documents.

Each Daily News article contains comprehension and critical thinking questions, which are located below the story. These questions are designed to help students develop an understanding of the content they are reading. Additionally, each article has “Background” and “Resources” sections to provide more context about the news story.
