The New York Daily News was the first tabloid newspaper in the United States. It was founded in 1919 and is still published in New York. Since its founding, it has won many Pulitzer Prizes, and it has become a major source of news in the world. Today, it maintains its local bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens. However, it was sunk into financial troubles for decades, and the company now faces bankruptcy.
In 2017, the Daily News was sold to Tronc, a media company based in Chicago. Before purchasing the paper, Tronc agreed to pay $1. This allowed the paper to be sold in 2017 for a fraction of its value.
The newspaper is available as an interactive edition, which lets users read the digital replica of the print edition, allowing them to swipe between pages, share stories via email, and even download an edition for offline reading. Users can also interact with readers by sending comments and asking questions.
The Daily News is known for its high-quality, bold presentation. Feature writing and investigative reporting have won the paper numerous accolades. As well, it is widely read in the province of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. But the daily news was also known for its strong coverage of the crime in New York City.
The Daily News also has a strong sports section. This is reflected in its plethora of prominent photographs.
The paper’s editorial stance has been described as “high-minded” and “populist.” From the 1940s through the 1960s, the Daily News was a champion of conservative populism. During the early stages of World War II, the paper supported a government of isolationists. Throughout the years, it has been considered a moderate, liberal alternative to the right-wing Post.
When the Daily News moved its headquarters to a new location, the city’s attention was captured by a wooden bench. Legendary boxing writer Jimmy Cannon sat on it. But by 1995, the bench was being relocated to a former location on West 33rd Street.
After the move, The Daily News’s circulation rose to more than 200,000 copies a day, making it one of the country’s top-selling newspapers. Even during the coronavirus pandemic, Daily News journalists worked remotely.
In addition to its excellent coverage of the city, The Daily News has won awards for its commentary. The Pulitzer Prize for Public Service was awarded to the paper in 2017. With an aversion to right-wing politics, the paper has been a force for moderation.
The Daily News has a mission to cover life in the five boroughs. Through its reporting, the paper has given voice to the voiceless, and it has made comfort for the afflicted.
While the Daily News’s death has left a bittersweet taste in many people’s mouths, there are reasons to hope that this tragedy can be overcome. And in fact, the book shows how some are trying to build a different kind of local journalism.
Death of the Daily News is a rich, accessible book that explores the tragic loss of a local newspaper in Pennsylvania, and it provides a window into the difficult process of grieving.
