Daily News is an American newspaper that was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News and later changed its name to the New York Daily News. It is a subsidiary of the Tribune Company, and is one of the oldest tabloid newspapers in the United States.
Founded by Joseph Medill Patterson in 1919, it was the first daily newspaper printed in tabloid format. It grew into the nation’s largest circulation, peaking at 2.4 million copies a day in 1947.
The Daily News has long been a conservative, populist publication. Although it was a Republican paper from the 1940s through the 1960s, the editorial stance of the News has been described as “flexibly centrist”.
For the majority of its history, the News espoused a socially conservative stance, though it also published a liberal and progressive side in its opinion section. It is widely regarded as a moderately progressive alternative to the right-wing New York Post.
