Daily news is the breaking news and events of the day, usually published in newspapers. It includes news about science, health and technology. It also covers breaking news about politics and business.
The Daily News Founded 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News, the newspaper was one of the first tabloid newspapers in the United States. Its early coverage was dominated by sensational news, lurid photographs, and cartoons.
It grew rapidly in the 1920s, and by 1929 it was the most popular paper in the United States with circulation of 1.27 million copies per day. By the mid-1940s it had grown to 2.4 million, and was the largest newspaper in the country.
During its glory days, the Daily News had an aggressively conservative editorial stance, and it backed isolationism in World War II. After a period of gradual liberalization, it began to shift its position in the 1970s, and by the 1990s had become an increasingly moderate newspaper.
Today, the Daily News is the flagship publication of the New York Times Company, and it publishes a number of other newspapers under its umbrella. It also owns WPIX (Channel 11), a television station, and owns a radio network called CBS Radio. It has local bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens, at City Hall and within One Police Plaza, and operates a series of print publications known as Sunday News.
In addition to its morning paper, the Daily News also offers an afternoon and weekend edition. The paper’s Sunday newspaper is often considered to be the best of its kind in the United States, with a wide range of features and coverage, including a sports section.
The Daily News Building
The paper’s main office was formerly located in 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, an official city and national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. In 1995 the paper moved to 450 West 33rd Street, which straddles the railroad tracks going into Pennsylvania Station.
For many people in New York, the Daily News is a source of local news that keeps them up-to-date with the latest events. The paper has won numerous awards for its coverage of major news stories, such as the 1975 car crash that killed actress Sophia Loren and her daughter in Brooklyn. The paper has also won awards for its reporting on such controversial topics as the Teapot Dome scandal and the murder of Ruth Snyder, a New York City woman who was executed in 1928 in an electric chair after being found guilty of the death of her husband. The newspaper also won a Pulitzer Prize for its reporting on the death of Osama bin Laden.
