About daily news

The New York Daily News, also known as the NYDN or the Daily News, is an American tabloid newspaper based in Manhattan. Founded in 1919, it is the first U.S. daily printed in tabloid format and at its peak had a circulation of over 2.4 million copies a day. Today, the Daily News is owned by Tronc and operates as one of the leading metropolitan newspapers in the United States.

During its heyday in the 1920s, the New York Daily News was best known for its sensational coverage of crime and politics, often depicting political wrongdoers as the bad guys and social reformers as the good guys. It was a leader in breaking major stories, such as the kidnapping of Wall Street Journal reporter Paul Hamilton and the execution of murderer Ruth Snyder.

By the end of the 20th century, the newspaper had a reputation for being conservative in its editorial stance, although it had begun to shift its focus more toward urban issues and social justice. It was also frequently compared and contrasted with its more sensational rival, the New York Post.

In recent years, the New York Daily News has shifted its focus further toward urban issues and social justice and is often cited as being moderately liberal in its editorial stance, despite its long history of espousing conservative populism. It is currently the ninth most widely circulated newspaper in the United States.

In Death of the Daily News, Andrew Conte takes a deep look at what happens in a community when its local newspaper shuts down and shows how citizens are trying to fill in the gaps left by the loss of traditional journalism. This book is both a compelling read and a valuable addition to the discussion about the future of the media landscape in America, where ‘news deserts’ continue to proliferate. Supremely well written, this is a deeply informative, insightful and ultimately hopeful book.
