Daily news is an ongoing flow of information about current events and affairs. It can be found in a variety of forms, from television and radio broadcasts to newspapers and magazines. Some types of media offer a more objective, factual representation of news while others tend to mix news with opinion and bias. While mainline American news outlets attempt to be impartial, some non-mainline sources such as MSNBC and Fox News are known for their political leanings.
Newspapers are a vital source of news for many Americans, though their print and online readership has been declining since the mid-2000s. Despite these challenges, they remain an important part of the American media landscape and are often considered the most trusted form of news by consumers. This article provides an overview of key trends and longitudinal data about daily newspapers in the United States.

Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News is one of the most widely read daily newspapers in the world. In its heyday in the 20th century, it was a brawny metro tabloid that thrived on investigative journalism and earned multiple Pulitzer Prizes for commentary and feature writing. Its famous headquarters at 220 East 42nd Street, designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood, was an official city and national landmark and served as the model for the fictional Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films. The newspaper relocated to 450 West 33rd Street (also known as Manhattan West) in 1995, though it maintains its historical name.
