A daily news item is a brief account of current events locally, nationally or internationally. It may be published daily, weekly or monthly and is typically written for a general audience that does not require any previous subject knowledge. Newspaper articles often include photos and graphics. Most are printed in black and white, although some publications use color in specific sections of the paper or as special inserts. Newspapers are also frequently accompanied by editorial and opinion pieces.

In addition to covering local and national news, the Daily News has long been known for its New York City exclusives and sports coverage, particularly the Yankees, Mets and Giants. The newspaper has been one of the top-selling newspapers in the United States and is still a leading seller today, though its circulation has declined since the peak it reached in the mid-20th century. In 2017 the paper was sold to Tronc, a media company, for $1.
Newspapers cover a wide range of topics, from politics and sports to science, art and music. They usually have a section that offers national and international news and an additional section that concentrates on local news and interests, including obituaries. Many newspapers also have sections devoted to comics and other light entertainment.
While some stories are clearly of interest to a broad audience, other topics have only a small readership. When this happens, the newspaper’s editor may decide to limit the story’s circulation or publication. For example, if the story involves an event that could threaten a person’s safety or privacy, the newspaper may choose to restrict its circulation to family members and close friends.
Many newspapers have staff writers and editors who specialize in certain areas of the news, such as crime, education or local government. These writers are referred to as “beat reporters.” A reporter is responsible for gathering the news and information about an area, while a beat editor supervises the staff writer’s work.
