The Daily News, published in New York City, is one of the largest-circulation newspapers in the United States. It was founded in 1919 and is owned by tronc, the publishing operations of the former Tribune Company.
The paper primarily covers the news, entertainment and sports of New York City, with a significant amount of international coverage. Its circulation has declined significantly from its heyday in the mid-19th century, but it is still one of the most widely read papers in the United States.
It has won eleven Pulitzer Prizes and is considered to be a major news outlet in the country. Its editorial stance is characterized as “flexibly centrist” with a “high-minded, if populist, legacy.”
A self-proclaimed Republican newspaper for much of its history, the Daily News has shifted its position in recent years, and is now more moderately liberal. In addition to its print publication, the Daily News has a television station and a radio station in New York.
As of 2017, the Daily News had a daily circulation of about 200,000 copies. Its owner is tronc, the publishing operation of the former Tribune Company, and its headquarters are at 4 New York Plaza in Lower Manhattan.
In the 20th century, the Daily News was the first successful tabloid in the United States. It attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and cartoons and other entertainment features. The paper reached its peak circulation of 2.4 million copies in 1947.
Until 1995, the newspaper was located at 220 East 42nd Street in New York City. The building is an official city and national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. The building is now the home of the Associated Press.
The News Building has been a model for many of the Daily Planet buildings in Superman films. The building is part of the Manhattan West district and straddles the railroad tracks that connect it to Pennsylvania Station. The building has also been the home of WPIX, the former News’s television station.
Daily News has been a major source of news in the City of New York for over a century. It is a popular newspaper that has been known to carry sensational headlines, such as the 1975 screamer, “Ford to City: Drop Dead.”
It has a history of supporting and attacking a variety of issues, including race, gender, religion and sexuality. It is also well known for its opinion pieces, which often feature conservative views of social policy.
As a result, it is often the target of right-wing attacks, such as those directed at Bridge to Life, a non-profit organization that provides services to pregnant women. In a recent editorial, the Daily News suggested that the city council’s practice of giving members item grants to nonprofit organizations should be rolled back.
