New York Daily News

The New York Daily News is an American tabloid newspaper published in New York City. It was founded in 1919 and was the first U.S. daily printed in tabloid format. The Daily News is currently owned by Tronc and is one of the nation’s largest newspapers. The paper is known for its intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip and classified ads, as well as its comics section and sports pages.

The News also maintains bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, at City Hall, within One Police Plaza, at the various state and federal courthouses in Manhattan, and at the White House. It has long been known for its investigative journalism, particularly on criminal cases. It is a major source of information about the city’s government and politics, and it is considered to be one of the most influential news sources in the United States.

It is a founding member of the Associated Press and an early member of the National Press Club, both organizations that promote journalistic integrity and professionalism. The News has won numerous awards for its writing, photography and editorial page design.

In addition to the main newspaper, the Daily News produces a number of weekly and special sections, including niche publications covering business and agriculture, as well as multiple annual editions focused on sports, entertainment and local affairs. Its website features a searchable archive of past issues.

During the Great Depression, the Daily News was among the first newspapers to introduce the use of photojournalism in the United States. In the 1930s, it was not uncommon for Daily News reporters to be able to take photos of events at the White House. Often these photographs would appear the following day in the paper, with an accompanying article describing the event.

The newspaper is one of the largest daily papers in the United States, with a circulation of just under 2 million copies. Its editorial staff includes a team of Pulitzer Prize winners and has been recognized for its work on the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the 2008 financial crisis. The Daily News was also the first paper to report that Osama bin Laden had been killed by a U.S. Navy SEAL squadron.

Ad Fontes Media rates the New York Daily News as Skewed Left in bias and Reliable, Analysis/Fact Reporting in reliability. The paper’s overall rating is 27th among Tabloid sites. The News has been the subject of several lawsuits. It has been criticized for its coverage of the 2016 presidential election, particularly for what is perceived as a biased slant toward Hillary Clinton and a failure to fully cover the Trump campaign’s allegations of voter fraud. The Daily News also has been criticized for its handling of a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against the paper’s former chairman. In response to criticism, the paper has implemented a number of measures designed to improve its accountability. In May 2018, the Daily News announced it was forming an independent commission to investigate allegations of workplace misconduct.
