The Daily News – The Honest Voice of New York

Daily News

The Daily News is a national newspaper that covers a variety of topics. Its writers are well-versed in politics, the economy, and the arts. In addition, the newspaper offers opinion pieces and features on current events. It also provides information on various international issues and trends. The Daily News is available online and in print form.

Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson, the Daily News was the first major tabloid newspaper in America. It became a sensation in the Roaring Twenties, reaching a circulation of more than a million daily copies by 1930. Its success was aided by its small size, which made it easier to carry on the subway. The newspaper also gained readers due to its titillating stories and reader contests.

In 1975, the Daily News published what would become one of its most famous headlines: “FORD TO CITY: DROP DEAD”. This was in response to President Gerald Ford’s veto of a bankruptcy bail-out for New York City. This event marked a turning point for the newspaper, which went on to embrace a broader centrist position. The newspaper’s slogan became “The Eyes, the Ears, and the Honest Voice of New York”.

Each day, a team of award-winning journalists brings you the very best live coverage from across the country and from around the world. You can find national and local news, New York exclusives, politics and the latest gossip and entertainment. And of course, no one covers the Yankees, Mets, and Giants like the Daily News.

The Yale Daily News is the oldest college newspaper in the United States. It is published every weekday while the University is in session and is distributed throughout campus. Many Yale Daily News editors, writers, and contributors have gone on to prominent careers in journalism and public service. Among them are William F. Buckley, Lan Samantha Chang, John Hersey, Sargent Shriver, Paul Steiger, Strobe Talbott, and Calvin Trillin.
