Founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson, the newspaper was the first tabloid to be successful in the United States. Attracting readers with sensational crime and scandal stories, lurid photographs and cartoons, the paper soon became the country’s highest-circulation daily newspaper. The News was renamed the Daily News in 1930 and became a member of the National Press Association in 1940.
The New York Daily News’s editorial stance has varied over the years. It favored isolationism in the early stages of World War II, and from the 1940s through the 1960s the News espoused a conservative populist legacy. After the 1970s, it became a centrist paper with some liberal leanings, and in the 1990s it shifted to a moderately liberal position, largely in competition with its more right-wing rival, The New York Post.
In 2022, the Daily News reported revenue of $540 million, a significant increase over the previous year’s revenue figure ($425 million). The Daily News was ranked as the fourth most-read U.S. daily newspaper by total circulation in that year, and its website had an average of 8.8 million monthly unique visitors, a decline of 20% from 2021.
