Daily News is one of America’s biggest tabloid newspapers. Its award-winning writers and columnists cover national and local news from the world’s greatest city. Its politics and New York sports coverage is unmatched. It is the home of the Yankees, Mets, Giants and Jets. It is the newspaper of choice for sports fans across the country and the world. Daily News also delivers exclusives, celebrity gossip and lifestyle features.
The Daily News was founded in 1919, as the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States. It was purchased in 2017 by Tronc, the publishing operations of the former Tribune Company, and is based at 4 New York Plaza in Lower Manhattan. It was the ninth most widely circulated newspaper in the country in 2022. The paper is often compared to the rival New York Post, which has a more conservative readership and has a higher AllSides Media Bias Rating than the Daily News.
The Yale Daily News Historical Archive includes digitized copies of YDN issues from January 28, 1878 to December 30, 2017. The archive is accessible online and can be searched and retrieved using a variety of tools. The YDN has been the primary source of news and debate at Yale for more than 130 years, and many of its alumni have gone on to careers in journalism and public life. The YDN has played a leading role in shaping public opinion and debate, as well as influencing American politics and culture.
Its editors are often accused of sensationalizing crime and other news to attract readers, and the paper has a long history of controversy over its use of racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, and homophobia. It has been particularly critical of President Trump and other Republican leaders, but is also seen as a strong advocate for women, immigrants, and minorities.
The paper has been under financial stress in recent years, and its revenue has decreased significantly in the past decade. In 2018, it was reported that the newspaper was close to bankruptcy. In May 2019, the Daily News announced that it had hired a private equity firm to review options for its ownership structure, including the possibility of a sale or shutdown.
The paper is widely regarded to have a liberal bias, and in 2022 was the third most biased media source in our database, behind only the New York Times and the Washington Post. In addition, the newspaper has a low level of trustworthiness, with Ad Fontes Media rating it Skews Left and Reliable in terms of Analysis/Fact Reporting and Bias. In this context, its reliability is weakened by the fact that the publication has been under the control of a cost-slashing hedge fund since its purchase by Tribune Publishing in 2017.
