The Daily News
The Daily News is a daily newspaper published by Independent News & Media SA and based in Durban, South Africa. It is an English-language newspaper that was previously called the Natal Daily News, and its history dates back to the 19th century. It is published every weekday afternoon.
The News was first founded as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson and is a subsidiary of the Chicago Tribune Company. It became the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States, attracting readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal, and violence, lurid photographs, cartoons and other entertainment features. Its circulation reached 2.4 million copies per day in 1947, making it the highest-circulated daily paper in the country at that time.
It has a strong editorial stance, espoused by the majority of its writers, which is usually referred to as “flexibly centrist”. Its political leanings are usually described as “high-minded, if populist”. However, its opinion pages often include more liberal views.
A digital replica of the print newspaper is available to read on your computer or mobile device through the Daily News E-dition. It includes all of the same content as the print version, and offers a simple user interface and the latest digital tools to enhance your reading experience.
In 1995, the Daily News moved from its longtime home in 220 East 42nd Street to 450 West 33rd Street (now known as 5 Manhattan West). Its current headquarters is a modern building designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood.
The Daily News has a large number of local bureaus throughout the city, including at the New York City Hall, within One Police Plaza, and in many state and federal courthouses. It also publishes a Sunday edition.
