Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News was once the largest-circulation daily newspaper in the world. The first tabloid in the United States, it was renowned for its sensational coverage of crime and scandal, and attracted a large readership through its lurid photographs and other entertainment features. It was a Democrat-leaning newspaper when most other American papers supported Republicans. Its ownership changed several times in the late 20th century, most recently by the Sample News Group of Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, which purchased the paper from Johnson Newspaper Corp. on May 1, 2023.
