The Daily News

Daily News is a tabloid newspaper founded in 1919 and published every day except Sunday. It is one of the largest newspapers in the United States and has won several Pulitzer Prizes for its journalism. Its editorial stance is generally to the right, although it covers many different topics and issues. Like any other newspaper, its reliability can vary depending on the topic and writer.

In the 1920s, the newspaper became known for its sensational pictorial coverage and titillating stories. It gained a loyal following among New York City subway riders, who found its smaller, more portable format easier to handle while riding the train.

By the late 1930s, it had become the most popular newspaper in the country, with circulation of over 1.5 million per day. The Daily News was also at the forefront of investigative journalism, using hidden cameras to capture images that were previously unavailable. For example, on January 12, 1928, the newspaper’s reporter Tom Howard strapped a camera to his leg and photographed Ruth Snyder mid-electrocution after being sentenced for murdering her husband. The photo was printed on the front page of the newspaper with the headline “DEAD!”

The News also had a reputation for its willingness to take risks in order to get a story, such as when it employed photographer Arthur B. Reeves to photograph the inside of a New York prison to expose conditions for criminals in holding cells. During this time, the newspaper was often called “New York’s Picture Newspaper.”

In 1948, the News established WPIX (Channel 11 in New York City), which took its call letters from the Daily News nickname. The News also bought what would become WFAN-FM, which still broadcasts out of the former Daily News building.

While the credibility of the Daily News can vary, it is generally a reliable source for news and information. It has won many awards for its reporting and has a dedicated readership. However, it can be criticized for its lack of objectivity and biased reporting.

Each article in the Daily News contains comprehension and critical thinking questions that students can use to analyze the article’s content. These questions can help students understand the underlying message of the article and determine whether or not it is accurate and trustworthy.

Each weekday, Yale Daily News publishes articles on a variety of current events and politics. It is the oldest college daily in the United States and has produced many prominent alumni who have gone on to careers in journalism and public service, including William F. Buckley, Lan Samantha Chang, John Hersey, Joseph Lieberman, Strobe Talbott, and Calvin Trillin.
