The Daily News

Daily News

In its 20th-century heyday, the Daily News was a brawny metro tabloid that thrived digging into crime and corruption. It was the inspiration for The Daily Planet, home of Clark Kent and Lois Lane in the Superman films, and was one of the most widely circulated newspapers in the world at its peak. The Daily News also won Pulitzer Prizes for commentary and reporting. It is currently owned by tronc, which also owns The Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune.

The newspaper industry is experiencing significant changes as readership declines and advertising revenue falls. Increasingly, readers are turning to the Internet to get their news and information. The Daily News, like many other traditional print media outlets, is trying to adapt by offering online versions of its products.

Generally, the newspaper is divided into sections for news stories, classified ads, opinion articles (also known as op-eds), and sports. Traditionally, a newspaper’s editorial page includes the editor’s opinions on public issues or policy. Alternatively, an editorial page may feature opinion pieces that are contributed by guest writers.

Most newspapers are published at regular intervals, typically on a daily or weekly basis. This ensures that the newspaper is updated often with current news and events. A newspaper’s editor is in overall charge of selecting and editing stories for its various content areas. The editor may be referred to by other titles, such as editor-in-chief or executive editor.

A large number of people work on a newspaper staff, including writers and editors who select the news and events to report; photojournalists who capture photos for the paper and who often accompany reporters on assignments; and a variety of other support personnel. The overall manager of a newspaper is called the publisher. In smaller publications, the publisher is usually the owner.

In early modern Europe, increased travel across continents created a need for quick and efficient communication of national and international news. This need was met in the early 1500s by concise handwritten newsletters called notizie scritte, which cost a single gazetta (a small coin). Although not considered true newspapers, these publications shared many characteristics of modern newspapers and were used to convey political, military, and economic news.
