The Daily News
Daily News is a newspaper that contains the latest news and information in a broad range of categories, including politics, sports, business, entertainment, and local news. It also features editorials, opinion pieces, and a classified ads section. The newspaper’s content is often illustrated with photographs or other visuals. It is typically published on a weekly or daily basis.
Founded on January 28, 1878, the Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college daily newspaper and has been financially and editorially independent since its inception. The paper serves the Yale community and New Haven by publishing Monday through Friday during the academic year, as well as several annual special issues.
In addition to its regular print edition, the Yale Daily News also publishes online. Its digital archive contains digitized versions of the printed Yale Daily News back to its founding in 1878. This archive is open to the public and can be accessed via the YDN Historical Archive.
The newspaper’s editorial stance has varied over the years. During World War II it supported isolationism, but in the 1970s it shifted its position to be more moderate and liberal. In more recent times, it has been described as a “high-minded, if populist, legacy” with a flexibly centrist stance.
It is one of the most widely read newspapers in the United States and has had a long history of prominence. The News has won numerous awards for journalism and was the first to use the word “tabloid” in a headline. In 1993, it was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service (shared with ProPublica) for uncovering police abuses of eviction rules. It is owned by Tribune Publishing, and is the flagship of its New York City media group.
Despite declining circulation, the paper maintains its reputation for large and prominent photographs of news and celebrity events. It also includes intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, a comics section, and a sports section. The newspaper’s website is also a major source of its revenue, and it is available in multiple formats for both desktop and mobile users.
The paper’s headquarters are at 220 East 42nd Street in Manhattan, an official New York City landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. It is now known as Manhattan West and houses former News subsidiary WPIX-TV. It was the model for the Daily Planet building in the Superman movies. The News has also maintained a branch office in the Bronx and within One Police Plaza in Brooklyn. The newspaper’s original name, which was the origin of its nickname as New York’s picture newspaper, was later changed to the Metropolitan Newspaper Company and then to the Daily News Corporation. The newspaper moved to its current location in 1995.
