Daily News

Gambling Jun 2, 2024

A daily news is a newspaper or magazine published every day. Daily news typically covers a range of topics including local and international politics, business, science, culture, and sports. Some newspapers also publish obituaries, weather forecasts and classified ads. In the United States, many cities have a local daily that serves as the city’s main newspaper. The New York Times is the most famous daily in the country, although there are other options available, such as the Washington Post and The New Yorker.

The Daily News was first published in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson. It was the first successful tabloid newspaper in America and attracted readers by lurid photographs and sensational coverage of crime, scandal, and violence. In the 1920s, the paper moved from Park Place to 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, a 36-story Art Deco building designed by Raymond Hood and John Mead Howells. It is considered an official city and national landmark, and was used as the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films. The building still houses the newspaper’s subsidiary, WPIX-TV.

By the end of the 1980s, the Daily News was struggling to compete with its more sensational rival, the New York Post, and was losing hundreds of millions of dollars a year. In November 1991, publisher Maxwell died of a heart attack on his yacht off the coast of Florida. The investigation that followed revealed widespread corruption in the newspaper’s corporate operations, and it was discovered that Maxwell had fraudulently manipulated pension funds to ensure the health of his media empire.

In January 1993, the Daily News was sold to Mort Zuckerman, owner of The Atlantic magazine. He invested $60 million in the paper to modernize its printing presses, and to reposition the Daily News as a serious tabloid. Under editor-in-chief Pete Hamill and later Debby Krenek, the paper developed a reputation for reporting on social issues and for defending the rights of the people of New York, particularly those who were perceived as being disenfranchised.

The paper’s most famous front-page headline came in 1975, when it proclaimed “FORD TO CITY: DROP DEAD.” Ford would later attribute the inflammatory headline to his loss to Jimmy Carter in the 1976 presidential election.

The Daily News was closed for three months in 1978 due to a multi-union strike by the Allied Printing Trades Council. The strike was precipitated by the Daily News’ decision to hire replacement workers rather than honoring contract obligations with its ten unions. The Daily News is now owned by Tronc, a Chicago-based media company. Tronc relaunched the Daily News in September 2017 with a renewed focus on city news, crime stories, and celebrity gossip. The Daily News’s website and mobile app feature a mix of long and short articles, large photographs, and bold headlines. The website includes a daily news podcast, and an online version of the newspaper’s archive. It is free to read.
