The Yale Daily News

Newspaper is a publication printed on paper, often folded and bound together at one edge, containing news, opinions and advertising. It is often delivered by mail, although some are distributed through stands and stores, and may also be available online. Newspapers are usually divided into a number of sections, including the main news or headlines; political events and personalities; business and finance; crime and law enforcement; weather and natural disasters; health and medicine; sports; society, entertainment, food and cooking; and other topics.

A newspaper is an important source of information and can be used to influence public opinion. However, because it is a medium that can be easily misinterpreted, some people may distrust its content. It is important that newspapers are able to build trust with their audiences. This can be done by following the principles of transparency and good journalism, ensuring that readers understand how decisions are made and why certain content is selected or excluded from the newspaper. Other ways to build trust include appointing ombudsmen, developing ethics policies and training, using stringent corrections policies, communicating editorial processes with readers and inviting sources to review articles after publication.

The Yale Daily News is a student-run newspaper published every weekday during the academic year at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. The oldest college newspaper in the United States, it is editorially independent and financially self-sustaining. In addition to the weekly edition, the News publishes a Friday supplement called WEEKEND, a magazine called YDN and a few special issues each year in collaboration with Yale’s cultural centers and affiliated student groups.

Founded on January 28, 1878, the News is the oldest college newspaper in the United States and has been financially independent since its founding. In the early decades of its existence, the newspaper embraced a conservative populist stance and supported isolationism during World War II. By the 1970s, it had shifted its position to a more moderate liberal one and was seen as a competitor to the right-wing New York Post.

In 2018, the News’s parent company, Tronc, sold it to publisher Moran Holdings for $600 million. The move was widely expected, as the paper’s circulation had been steadily declining for years and its losses were outpacing revenue.

In addition to publishing the newspaper, the Daily News operates several television and radio stations in the New York City area. Its flagship station is WPIX-TV, which was established in 1948 (its call letters were based on the newspaper’s nickname) and was owned by the News until 1995. The station has been a part of CBS Corporation since its purchase by CBS in 2016. Its radio affiliates include WABC-AM and WFAN-FM. The Daily News also owns WSJX, an AM radio station in New Jersey and an internet service named NewsNation. The paper was once headquartered at 220 East 42nd Street in Manhattan, an official city and national landmark designed by architects John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. The building was the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films.
