The Daily News (often shortened to “The Daily”) is a New York City-based American newspaper. It is owned by tronc, which acquired the newspaper in 2017. It was founded in 1919 and is known for its sensational coverage of crime and scandal, and its lurid photographs and cartoons. It was the first tabloid-style daily newspaper in the United States. Today, the Daily News is known for its strongly left-center editorial bias and is often contrasted with the more conservative New York Post.
While the majority of newspapers focus on a general audience, some are more specialized and target readers defined by their interests rather than geography or location. Examples include business, sports and international news. Many of these newspapers are available weekly or daily.
Most newspapers have a number of departments, most notably the editorial department, where the overall manager of the newspaper is called the publisher. The other main departments are production/printing, circulation and advertising. Many larger newspapers also have other non-newspaper-specific departments such as accounting, marketing and human resources.
While some critics have complained that the Daily News has become more shrill and less factual in recent years, others argue that it is simply responding to changes in the news industry. Some have even claimed that the paper is in a state of crisis because it cannot compete with online news sites, which offer up-to-the-minute coverage.

Like many other newspapers, the Daily News offers free subscriptions to members of its community, which can be a way for people to keep up to date with local and regional news that they might not otherwise get.
