Daily News is a morning tabloid newspaper founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson. The first successful American tabloid, it attracted readers with sensational stories of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and cartoons and entertainment news. By the 1940s, it was a staunchly Republican paper that supported isolationism in World War II and espoused conservative populism in its later years. The Daily News merged with the Chicago Tribune in 1983 to form the Tribune Publishing Company.
Amid the declining circulation and a series of financial problems, the New York Daily News was sold to the cost-cutting hedge fund Alden Global Capital in 2016. The new owners began immediately to cut staff, eliminate many sections, and reduce the amount of local news coverage. The Daily News has been described as the most important newspaper in New York City and one of the country’s most influential, but it is now a shadow of its former self.
The current editor-in-chief, Dean Baquet, was hired in September 2016 and has worked tirelessly to restore the newspaper’s reputation. However, he is still struggling to revive the Daily News’s revenue and readership. The newspaper’s parent company, Tronc, is also losing money. The company is reportedly considering filing for bankruptcy and cutting costs in order to avoid liquidation.
