Daily News is a tabloid newspaper founded in 1919 and known for its large headlines, big photographs and short articles. The paper is based in New York City and is often described as “New York’s hometown paper”.

The newspaper focuses on local events, politics and gossip from the world’s greatest city and is famous for its sports coverage of Yankees, Mets and Giants. It also has a long history of investigative journalism. It is also known for its social commentary and skepticism. The newspaper has won several awards, including a Pulitzer Prize in 1996 for E.R. Shipp’s article about police brutality against Abner Louima and a Pulitzer Prize in 1998 for Mike McAlary’s story about the suicide of AIDS patient Ruth Snyder.

The newspaper’s early success was due to its sensational coverage of crime, scandal and violence. It attracted readers with lurid photographs and cartoons. During its heyday, it had a circulation of 2 million copies a day and was the most successful tabloid in America.

Today, the newspaper has a circulation of less than 800,000 and is owned by Tronc. It is no longer the most popular newspaper in the country, but it still attracts a loyal following with its unique mix of hard news and soft news. In addition to the main newspaper, the Daily News publishes a variety of special sections and inserts. The most popular section is probably the fashion magazine, which has a worldwide readership.

In recent years, the newspaper has struggled with declining circulation and financial problems. In 1995, it moved out of its iconic News Building home and into a single-story office at 5 Manhattan West. The same year it began publishing the quarterly BET Weekend, a popular insert that became a monthly publication in 1997.

Most people agree that the job of news media – newspapers, magazines, radio and television – is to inform and educate. It is not necessarily their job to entertain, although some do try to do this – music and drama programs on radio; crosswords and cartoons in newspapers. However, it is important that the news media report only what is true. Entertainment should come from other sources – the theatre, cinema and carving of arts; music and dance on stage and in the concert hall; or sport. Only then will it be possible to give the public an informed choice about what they should see and hear. If the entertainment comes from non-news, it will be a waste of time for all concerned.
