Daily news is the name given to newspaper articles published on a regular basis. These may contain current events, politics, economics, social issues or sports updates. They are often written by a team of journalists or freelancers. Daily newspapers can be read on the internet or in print. They are the most common form of media in most countries, including India. They can be found in every home and office across the country, from small towns to major cities. Some of the largest daily newspapers are based in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore.
In its heyday in the early 20th century, the New York Daily News was one of America’s most popular and influential newspapers. It was also the first U.S. daily to be printed in tabloid format. In recent years, the paper has shifted to a moderate-to-liberal editorial stance and is frequently contrasted with its more conservative rival, The New York Post. Today, the Daily News is owned by tronc, which acquired Tribune Publishing in 2017 and now publishes nine metro and suburban dailies in the United States.
The Daily News has a long history of controversy and scandals, from its coverage of the 1919 World Series to a 1975 headline declaring that “Ford to City: Drop Dead.” In more recent years, it struggled to compete with the more sensational New York Post in a highly competitive tabloid marketplace. In the wake of declining circulation, its then-owner Mortimer Zuckerman sold the newspaper in 2017 to a group led by cost-slashing hedge fund Alden Global Capital. The sale was accompanied by rapid-fire changes to the News’s staff and editorial structure that were met with much angst by the staff and its supporters.
Hundreds of thousands of people have signed an online petition calling for the Daily News to reinstate editorial cartoons that depicted Mayoral candidate Andrew Yang as a tourist, and accused him of being a racist. The Daily News, which was bought in the summer of 2018 by a California billionaire, has denied that the cartoons were racist, but the petition has prompted the publisher to review its cartoon policy.
