The Daily News

Daily news is a short summary of current events, usually from local or national media. The news is edited to be as unbiased as possible. It can include a wide variety of topics, from politics to culture to sports to business to science and more. Daily news may also include opinion pieces and editorials, as well as photographs and graphics.

In addition to reporting daily news, many of the largest newspapers feature extensive political coverage and analysis. Some also publish detailed investigative reports on a wide range of topics, from government corruption to sports scandals. Some of the most famous and successful political reporters in history have worked at some of these newspapers.

For example, the New York Daily News was a leader in uncovering sexual abuse of children by priests, and its editorial writers have often been critical of the policies of the Democratic Party and other mainstream media outlets. In the 20th century, it also focused on social intrigue and public wrongdoing, including political scandals such as the Teapot Dome scandal and a romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to her abdication. The paper devoted much attention to photography, and was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service in the 1930s.

The News also was an innovator in TV. In 1948 it established the television station WPIX, with call letters based on its nickname as “New York’s Picture Newspaper.” The News Building at 220 East 42nd Street was designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood, who built the Chicago Tribune Tower a few years earlier. It is an official city and national landmark, and was used as the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films.

Despite its prestigious reputation, the newspaper experienced a series of financial difficulties in the late 1970s and 1980s. Eventually, its parent company, the Tribune Company, was acquired by another media firm, Tronc, and in 1990 the News went bankrupt. The newspaper reclaimed its reputation in the years following that bankruptcy and, in 1998, it moved to new headquarters at 450 West 33rd Street, which straddles the railroad tracks into Pennsylvania Station.

Its online version, the Daily News eNews, was launched in 1996 and is known for its high quality of writing and strong focus on local news. It is available at no charge to anyone who wishes to access it, though a subscription is required to read the full articles. It covers politics, celebrity gossip and sports, with particular emphasis on the Yankees, Mets, Giants and Jets. It also provides a wealth of original New York City and beyond news, as well as national and international news. The eNews website features the latest live headlines, as well as news articles and video clips. In addition, readers can download the eNews to their device for offline reading. The site also offers the ability to share stories with friends through email and Facebook.
