Daily news is the term used to describe a newspaper that is published every day. These newspapers typically include a variety of articles that cover the latest events and developments in a country’s political, economic, social, cultural and technological landscape. They may also contain information on sports, entertainment, and world news. Daily news is a popular form of media that can be found in many countries across the globe.
A typical daily paper is divided into several major groupings: news, opinion (often referred to as “op-ed”), classified ads, and comics. In addition, most traditional papers feature an editorial page expressing the views of the paper’s editors on a particular topic or issue, and columns that express the personal opinions of columnists. The editorials and op-eds often provide analysis and synthesis that translate the raw data of the news into information telling the reader what it all means, as well as persuading them to concur with the paper’s view.
Some newspapers are aimed at a general audience, while others are aimed at specific groups within a population such as business, sports, and politics. Still others are targeted at specific geographic regions or even to communities such as immigrant populations, gays and lesbians, or indie rock music fans within a city or region.
The New York Daily News is a morning daily tabloid newspaper founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, and was the first successful U.S. newspaper printed in a tabloid format, reaching its peak circulation in 1947. The paper is known for sensational news coverage, lurid photographs, and cartoons and other entertainment features. The newspaper has won eleven Pulitzer Prizes.
As the largest tabloid newspaper in the United States, the Daily News has a reputation for bold headlines and an aggressive style of reporting, particularly with regard to crime. Its political leanings are moderate to liberal, although in recent years it has developed a more activist stance and taken on crusades that are probably not conducive to maintaining its reputation for objectivity.
The Daily News is owned by Tribune Publishing, and its staffers have been struggling with a series of cost-cutting measures imposed by the hedge fund that owns the paper, Alden Global Capital. The staffers have voted to unionize, and are staging demonstrations outside the paper’s headquarters. As a result of the cost-cutting, the editorial staff has not been able to meet its deadlines for the past two weeks and is now facing a potential shutdown of the newspaper. Ad Fontes Media rates the Daily News as skewing left in terms of bias, and as reliable for Analysis/Fact Reporting. The Daily News is currently facing a challenge to its takeover by Alden Global Capital from the NewsGuild of New York, one of the nation’s oldest journalism labor unions. This may delay the final approval of the deal by shareholders. This could cause the publication to miss its June 21 deadline for selling its parent company to the hedge fund.
