Daily News is one of South Africa’s most popular newspapers. It is tailored for the time challenged rush hour reader who wants accessible news conveniently packaged for reading on the go. Daily News offers a mix of local and national news with strong emphasis on current affairs, politics, business, celebrity gossip and sports. In addition to the latest news, Daily News also features articles from the world of fashion, lifestyle and beauty.
Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News was the first tabloid newspaper to be successful in the United States. It attracted readers by lurid, sensational coverage of crime and scandal and by offering entertainment, including celebrity gossip, comics and a sports section. Today, the Daily News is owned by Tronc, the publishing operations of the former Tribune Company. The News is headquartered in Lower Manhattan at 4 New York Plaza.
The Daily News has been known for its bold and often controversial headlines, such as the 1975 “Ford to City: Drop Dead.” The newspaper has been at times a staunchly conservative publication, aligning with the Republican Party and supporting isolationism in the early twentieth century, but has shifted to a more moderate-to-liberal editorial position in recent years. It is a fierce rival to the New York Post, which it shares a circulation battle with.
In the modern era, many newspapers have suffered from declining sales and readership, as the internet has made it easier for people to find information on their own. Some newspapers have even closed altogether. However, not all hope is lost. In some communities, citizens are trying to fill the void left by local journalism. This book explores these experiments in McKeesport, Pennsylvania and elsewhere.
The Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college daily newspaper and serves Yale and the surrounding community of New Haven, Connecticut.
