The New York Daily News is a morning tabloid newspaper founded in 1919. It was the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States and drew readers with sensational headlines that highlighted crime, corruption and violence. The paper also included lurid photographs and entertainment coverage. The News was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and built a large staff of photographers. In the 1930s it became an editorial leader in promoting government wrongdoing, such as the Teapot Dome scandal, and social intrigue, such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to their abdication.
In its later years the News found itself locked in a circulation battle with its even more sensational rival, the New York Post. In the 1970s it shifted its political stance, becoming moderately liberal and embracing populism. It became the leading alternative to the Post, whose conservative populism had made it a Republican newspaper through much of the 20th century.
By the 21st century the News struggled to maintain its readership and reputation as a quality newspaper, and in 2020 it was sold to Tronc, a Chicago media company. The Daily News is known for its outrageous headlines and extensive city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, and comics. It is also the most prominent newspaper in the New York metropolitan area and one of the largest newspapers in the world.
The Yale Daily News is the oldest college newspaper in the United States, and it has been financially and editorially independent since its founding on January 28, 1878. It is published every weekday while the university is in session, and it serves the Yale community. The Daily News publishes special issues such as the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue and Commencement Issue. It also publishes weekly online editions called News-2-You and Breaking News that support informational text standards for students with diverse learning needs. Both of these features allow students to connect with events of the day, week, month and year by retelling and summarizing them. They can be read in the classroom with a reading group or individually. The Daily News has a staff of students who work on its editorial and reporting teams. Many of these students have gone on to careers in journalism or to prominent positions in society. They include William F. Buckley, Lan Samantha Chang, John Hersey, Sargent Shriver and Calvin Trillin.
