How to Write a Daily News Article

daily news

Daily news is a type of journalism that reports the latest happenings in politics, the economy and culture. It is usually written from a top down approach. This means that the most important information is given first and the rest of the article provides less and less detail as it goes on. The best way to learn about writing a news article is to read examples from other newspapers and then practice.

A successful newspaper must have a good headline to catch the attention of the reader. It must be short, catchy, emotion evoking, and create curiosity. It also needs to be accurate and specific to the story that is being reported.

The New York Daily News is an American morning tabloid newspaper founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson in New York City as the Illustrated Daily News. The paper established itself as one of the country’s leading tabloids in the early twentieth century, attracting readers with sensational crime and scandal coverage, lurid photographs, and cartoons. In the 1930s, it became the biggest newspaper in the world with a circulation of over 1.5 million.

In the early 1980s, the Daily News’ fortunes took a turn for the worse. A series of costly strikes at other newspaper companies, most notably the Chicago Tribune, forced the Daily News to hire non-union replacement staff and reduce its budget for printing and distribution. The move sparked a wave of mergers in the publishing industry, including that of the News with its rival, the New York Post.

By the 1990s, the Daily News had regained some of its lost glory. The paper gained a reputation for fighting for the rights of its residents, particularly those who were deemed to have no voice in other media. This earned it a Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary in 1996 for E.R. Shipp’s pieces on welfare and race and again in 1998 for Mike McAlary’s report on police brutality against Haitian immigrant Abner Louima.

In addition to the newspaper itself, the News also produces a weekly supplement called WKND and a monthly insert known as BET Weekend for African Americans. In addition, the News publishes a number of special issues each year that are designed in collaboration with Yale’s various cultural centers and student groups. Each News article includes comprehension and critical thinking questions that can be found beneath each story. Each question also has “Background” and “Resources” that can be used to help students understand the context of the article. Students can also sign up to receive the Daily News via email each day. This is a great way to stay informed of current events!
