The Daily News is an American newspaper. It is based in Jersey City, NJ. It was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson and first published as the Illustrated Daily News. In 1947, the Daily News reached its peak circulation of 2.4 million copies. Since then, it has undergone many changes. Today, it is known for covering news and world events.
Death of the Daily News
The Death of the Daily News by Andrew Conte is a timely and necessary look at what is going wrong with newspapers today. The author is a former reporter for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and is now the director of the Center for Media Innovation at Point Park University. He was also a staff reporter for the newspaper’s sister publication, the NextPittsburgh On Media. Conte’s book is due out in September. It explores the changing nature of local journalism, as well as how the Daily News can survive in the future.
The slashing of editorial staff is a symptom of a shift from the newspaper industry to the digital age. In a world of instant content, constant production feeds ad revenue. However, it takes time to gather news and produce it. This is not sustainable.
Influence of Los Angeles Mirror
The Los Angeles Times has a long history of journalism. In 1891, the newspaper promoted the construction of a free harbor at San Pedro. It also promoted the construction of the first freeway, which opened in the 1930s. However, in the 1990s, the newspaper went on strike, causing the Los Angeles Mirror to expand its circulation.
The Mirror was founded by owners of the Los Angeles Times in 1948 and competed with the Los Angeles Daily News. In 1954, the Mirror purchased the Los Angeles Daily News and changed its name to Mirror-News. During this time, the Mirror sold 1.4 million copies a day. The paper was a success.
Influence of Los Angeles Times
Soon-Shiong has a vision to change the daily news format into an independent, multimedia, and engaging platform. He wants to create an environment where younger generations can access information from a variety of perspectives. He also wants to avoid playing into the hyperpartisan discourse. His goal is to separate the “real” news from “fake news.”
The LA Times is considered to be Moderately Left-Center in its bias. Despite the liberal leanings of the LA Times, its fact-checking is clean and it’s considered a reliable source of information.
Influence of Los Angeles Sentinel
The Los Angeles Sentinel has a rich history that spans over seven decades. It began as a newspaper for Black readers and has become one of the most important publications in the black community. Its mission is to serve the African-American community and provide diverse viewpoints for African-Americans. The Sentinel is headquartered in the predominantly black neighborhood of Crenshaw. Its circulation topped 56,000 in the 1960s, but had declined dramatically by the 1970s.
