Founded as the Illustrated Daily News in 1923, the paper quickly became one of the most popular tabloids in the United States. Its appeal was based on sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and cartoons. It also emphasized political wrongdoing and social intrigue (such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII). By the 1930s it had emerged as a leading competitor of its rival, the New York Post.
By the 1980s, it had fallen behind its competition, whose circulation was much larger. It continued to publish sensational stories, but with diminished impact. By the end of the decade, it was struggling to survive and its editorial staff was shrinking.
In this deeply reported book, Andrew Conte chronicles the decline of a great American newspaper—and the societal effects of its demise. The story of the Daily News in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, is a familiar one, but the consequences of its demise have far-reaching implications.
Conte has written a wise and compelling study of what happens when a daily newspaper dies, the impact on communities and how it may be prevented. The book is a valuable contribution to the ongoing conversation about the future of journalism in our digital age.
