Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News is the first U.S. daily printed in tabloid format and reached peak circulation in 1947 of 2.4 million copies a day. It is based in Jersey City, NJ. The Daily News has won many awards, including the Pulitzer Prize.
Pulitzer Prizes won
Throughout the past decade, The Daily News has received numerous journalism awards. The Pulitzer Prizes are among the most prestigious in journalism. These awards are given to journalists who work in newspapers, magazines and digital news outlets.
The Daily News won a Pulitzer Prize in 1989 for its coverage of the Teamsters union. The paper won a Pulitzer for Public Service in 1989 and a Pulitzer for Public Service in 1976.
In 1990, the Daily News was a finalist for breaking news photography. It was also a finalist for feature photography. The paper’s journalism awards include the Pulitzer Prize for public service, which is considered the most prestigious award in journalism.
Editorial positions on political candidates
Traditionally, endorsements are the preserve of the newspaper’s editorial board. But, in this era of digital news consumption, news organizations have begun to rethink their role in a crowded political arena. In the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, many are asking themselves whether endorsements are worth the time and effort.
The New York Daily News, for one, has decided to put the kibosh on its odious od. This is the first time the paper has decided not to endorse a candidate in a major election, despite a longstanding practice of doing so.
Technology has caused disruption to American journalism
During the past few years, technology has radically disrupted American journalism. The rise of user-generated media, social media, mobile phones, and a host of other technologies has reshaped the news industry. And, as the media landscape changes, it is posing a threat to the longstanding business model of the news industry.
The emergence of new media has also challenged the traditional role of journalists. In the past, journalists were responsible for verifying claims and providing evidence to support claims. But with social media, citizens can become de facto journalists. These citizens share stories and rumors. They are not always aware of their source identity. This leads to the spread of false news with a reach that was not possible just a decade ago.
