The Daily News is the flagship newspaper of New York City. It is a subsidiary of the Tribune Company and has a circulation of over 200,000. Its parent company owns a number of other newspapers, including the Philadelphia Daily News and the Chicago Tribune. It is also one of the largest media companies in the United States.
Founded in 1919, it was the first American daily newspaper printed in tabloid format and is now the eleventh-largest in the country. It has a long and varied history, covering subjects such as politics, crime, science, culture, sports, and celebrity gossip.
It was once the most widely read newspaper in the country, and it still has an enviable reputation for delivering sensational and often controversial coverage of events in and around New York City. In the mid-19th century, it was a staunch supporter of Republicanism and isolationism. In the 1940s and 1950s, it was a leading voice for American anti-communism and opposition to Communist expansion in the Soviet Union.
In the 1970s, it shifted its editorial stance to become more moderately liberal. The newspaper’s slogan, “New York News & World Report,” remains to this day. The paper has a large staff of reporters specializing in political, business, legal and cultural affairs. It is known for its investigative reporting, particularly its coverage of New York City crime.
The Daily News has won numerous awards for its coverage of the metropolis, including a Pulitzer Prize in 1997 for its coverage of the Hurricane Katrina disaster. The newspaper is considered to be an industry leader in multimedia content and social media engagement.
Several major events have been covered by the Daily News, most notably the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and the 2002 Columbia University campus shootings. The paper has a long tradition of covering local news in the Manhattan area, and its Sunday edition is often considered the best in the business for delivering the latest breaking stories to its readers.
The paper has a long history of generating buzz with its innovative reporting and eye-catching advertising. Its most notable innovations included the first newspaper to use digital graphics, and a satirical comic strip by John Barthler. It also has the largest newsroom in the world, with over 3,000 employees. The newspaper was named the best newspaper in the state of New York by the State Society of Newspaper Editors and has won many other honors as well.
