The Yale Daily News

Daily News

News is information about current events that has been delivered through various media, including word of mouth, printing, postal systems, broadcasting, and electronic communication. It is often classified as either hard or soft, depending on whether it provides factual information or focuses more on emotion and interpretation of the facts. It can be a significant source of influence over the audience, as well as a catalyst for action or change.

The modern news industry has developed several models that help define what is considered to be a “news story.” For example, the Mirror Model asserts that all stories should contain the five basic elements of a news story: who, what, when, where, and why. These are important in establishing the credibility of a news article, as well as providing accuracy and a sense of legitimacy to the content.

Historically, newspapers have had to make editorial decisions about what to print, especially when limited by available space. These choices have often been based on what the editor thought would be of interest to the readership, and what the editors felt was important in their community. However, the recent emergence of new online media and the decline of traditional newspapers have resulted in many changes to the way that news is gathered and presented.

In the 1920s, for instance, the Daily News found abundant subject matter in such items as the Teapot Dome scandal and the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII. It also emphasized photography, using a staff of professional photographers and becoming an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service. The News was known for its political stance, which at times favored isolationism and, later, conservative populism.

The Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college newspaper. It is published Monday through Friday during the academic year and serves the Yale and New Haven communities in Connecticut. The News publishes a weekly Magazine and a Friday supplement, WEEKEND, as well as multiple annual special sections that celebrate the diversity of our community.

In addition, the Daily News offers access to a full, interactive version of the newspaper via the Internet. It features a simple interface that allows readers to easily navigate the newspaper, search for specific articles, and enlarge photos. The e-Edition can be viewed from any computer or mobile device and is updated each day.

The News also provides a variety of educational resources, including teacher resources and classroom activities aligned with Common Core and state standards. The website also includes the ability to submit and share local news items. It also features the obituaries section of the newspaper, as well as archived editions from 1881 to present. The Library is pleased to offer this resource to the public for free through its website. You can access the Daily News e-Edition through your Library card number.
