A daily news is a periodical publication that contains current events and opinions about them. It is usually written and illustrated, printed on paper or card stock, and delivered to homes or businesses. The information can be local, national or international. It may include political or social commentary, sports or entertainment stories and classified advertising.
In its 20th-century heyday, The New York Daily News was a brawny metro tabloid that thrived by digging into crime and corruption. It was the inspiration for The Daily Planet, the newspaper depicted in the 1994 movie “The Paper.” It won dozens of Pulitzer Prizes for commentary and investigative reporting. Its iconic logo was a white four-faced clock. Dick Young, Jimmy Cannon and a host of other Daily News mainstays sat on it through the years.
The paper shifted its focus to politics and culture in the 1970s and 80s, but continued to cover sports and business as well. It was also known for its large photos and celebrity gossip. The News diversified again in the 2000s by expanding its digital presence, offering television and radio programs and developing a mobile app for iPhone users.
Its website, the Daily News App and its mobile and tablet apps deliver breaking news, top stories and multimedia content to millions of readers each day. The app features live coverage of local and national news, a selection of original Daily News videos and the latest Yankees, Mets, Giants and Jets news. Readers can download editions for offline reading and share stories with friends through email or social media.
