The Daily News

Daily News

In its 20th-century heyday the Daily News was a brawny metro tabloid that thrived on crime and corruption. The paper served as the inspiration for the tabloid portrayed in the first two Superman films and won Pulitzer Prizes for commentary, feature writing and even international reporting. Today the New York City newspaper still holds a major position in the local media, but its circulation has slipped considerably and it faces intense competition from the Post and other online outlets.

In addition to intense city news coverage, the Daily News features celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics and a sports section. The newspaper is also known for its oversized photographs, particularly in the front page.

The storied newspaper has had its share of financial troubles. In the late 1970s, the Daily News was so broke it was forced to publish only two days a week. In the 1990s it shifted its political stance from a staunch Republican to a more centrist stance and has since gained a reputation as a moderately liberal alternative to the right-wing Post.

Today the Daily News is owned by the Tribune Publishing company, which in turn is controlled by Alden Global Capital, a hedge fund that has enacted buyouts and cuts at many of its newspapers since taking over last year. The News recently announced plans to outsource its printing operations.

While the News has a large staff of reporters, some of its stories are written by freelancers. The News has several bureaus in the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn, as well as offices at City Hall and One Police Plaza. The News also maintains satellite offices in the Westchester County and Long Island regions.

The News has a wide range of opinions on social, cultural and political issues. The newspaper has been critical of Mayor Bill de Blasio and has endorsed a range of candidates for local office. It has also been critical of President Trump and has criticized the federal government’s response to Hurricane Maria.

In the 1920s and 1930s, the Daily News often featured political scandals, such as the Teapot Dome Scandal and the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to her abdication. In later years, it focused on celebrity gossip and social intrigue.
