The Daily News is a tabloid newspaper published in New York City, United States. It is the ninth most widely circulated newspaper in the country and was the first U.S. daily to be printed in tabloid format. The paper is owned by tronc, which acquired it from Lee Enterprises in 2017. The News is a major source of news for New York City and its metropolitan area. The paper covers a wide variety of topics, including politics, crime, celebrity gossip, business, entertainment, and sports. The News also features large photographs, classified ads, comics, and a local section known as the Daily Intel.
The News has long been a staunchly conservative paper, but it has softened its tone and shifted more toward the center in recent years. Its current political lean is moderate-to-liberal, and the paper often opposes the policies of President Trump.
A Daily News editorial in March 2018 claimed that the president’s proposed budget would “fund a massive government takeover of health care, education, and the military.” In a series of articles, the News described a scenario in which the Affordable Care Act and Medicare are replaced with a single health insurance system financed by taxes on wealthy individuals and corporations. The News argues that such a system would reduce costs by eliminating the need for insurers to cover preexisting conditions and limit coverage to essential services.
In addition to its main office at 450 West 33rd Street in Manhattan, the News has bureaus in the Bronx and Brooklyn, within One Police Plaza in Lower Manhattan, and in Queens and Brooklyn. The paper maintains television and radio stations based in the New York City area as well. WPIX-TV, Channel 11 in New York City, was a News subsidiary until it was purchased by Tribune in 1998 and continues to operate from the former Daily News Building. The News also operates a radio station called WFAN-FM.
The Daily News has a reputation for breaking news stories that others often miss. The paper’s investigative work has frequently exposed corruption in the financial, legal, and medical fields. The newspaper has also been an early leader in promoting civil rights and gay and lesbian issues.
