Daily News

Daily news is a newspaper that publishes on a daily basis. It covers a wide range of topics and often includes photographs, local sports, and celebrity gossip. It also contains information about the local community and features political news. Often, the daily news is used by schools to teach students about current events and the history of their country.

The New York Daily News is a morning tabloid newspaper in New York City, founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News. It was the first U.S. daily printed in tabloid format and reached its peak circulation in 1947, when it was the highest-circulation newspaper in the world. The News attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal, and violence, lurid photographs, and cartoons and other entertainment features. It became known as “New York’s Picture Newspaper.” In 1948 the News established WPIX, a television station whose call letters were based on its namesake newspaper; it still maintains a presence in the city, with bureaus at City Hall and within One Police Plaza. The News also operates a radio station, WFAN-FM, which is an FM simulcast of its AM namesake and has its headquarters in the former Daily News Building.

During the 1920s, the News’ editorial stance was liberal, though it leaned toward populism, with some adherence to isolationism in the early stages of World War II. The News emphasized political wrongdoing such as the Teapot Dome scandal and social intrigue such as Wallis Simpson’s romance with King Edward VIII that led to his abdication. It was an early user of Associated Press wirephotos, and developed its own staff of photographers.

The paper has a distinctive appearance, including the use of a large and bold typeface in its headlines. Until 1995, the newspaper was located at 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, an official city and national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood; it was later used as the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films. Afterwards, the newspaper moved to 450 West 33rd Street (also known as Manhattan West).
