Daily News is a newspaper, often printed daily, weekly or semi-weekly, that provides an account of current events locally, nationally or internationally. It is written for the general public, so readers do not require previous subject knowledge. It also usually includes news analysis, editorials, letters to the editor and a comprehensive list of sources. It is distinct from journals or magazines which provide specialist subject articles.
The New York Daily News is a newspaper founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News and was the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States. Its early success was based on sensational coverage of crime and violence, celebrity gossip, and political intrigue such as the Teapot Dome scandal, Wallis Simpson’s romance with King Edward VIII and the subsequent abdication, and other matters of interest to the public. It also featured lurid photographs and other entertainment features.
The paper is still published today. It has grown into a multi-media organization including a radio station called WKND and its companion website. Its parent company, Tribune Co., also owns a television channel called WPIX and shares ownership of the Associated Press wirephoto service. The paper is a member of the National Press Association and the American Society of Newspaper Editors.
When writing a news article it is important to be accurate and to report the facts without bias. The newspaper should be unbiased and free of personal opinion. In order to be a credible source it is important for the writer to have a good understanding of the topic and to research extensively.
Writing a news article involves deciding on the topic that is most relevant and then finding information about it. It is then necessary to pool the most relevant information and arranging it into pyramid “buckets” based on their importance. The top of the bucket should contain the most important information, then more and less pertinent information should be placed beneath it. It is then necessary to write a snappy headline and write an introductory paragraph that informs the reader of the news item while seizing their interest.
A well-written news article will be both accurate and engaging. It will include a summary of the news item and should be accompanied by a photograph or illustration that is appropriate for the story. It will include a source for the information and the date of publication. It will also include a brief description of any related or supporting topics. The article should be easy to read and readable on the screen, so it is essential that any pictures and illustrations are clear. The article should also be clearly organized and numbered to allow the reader to easily find what they are looking for. Finally, the article should be proofread for grammatical and spelling errors. If the article is being published online, it should be uploaded in a format that will allow for easy viewing and downloading. The reader can then print the article or save it for later use.
