About Daily News
The New York Daily News was the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States and, as of 2019,[update] it is the eleventh-most-circulated American newspaper. It was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson, and it grew to become a major news publication. It attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal, and violence, lurid photographs and cartoons, and it had a strong influence on news reporting in the 20th century.
Today’s Daily News reflects the legacy of its predecessor, and it has a liberal-centrist editorial stance that is aligned with a sister publication, the Chicago Tribune, which was also a right-wing paper until the 1990s. It was a leading force in the movement to expand women’s rights, as well as a vocal supporter of the civil rights movement and of social justice issues.
It is a morning daily tabloid newspaper with a circulation of 2.4 million copies based in New York City and was published by the New York Times Company until 2006. The daily paper contains large and prominent photographs for news, entertainment and sports. It features intense city news coverage and celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics, a sports section, and an opinion section.
