The New York Daily News is an American tabloid newspaper published in New York City. The paper traces its origins back to the Illustrated Daily News, a tabloid that was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson, the founder of the Times-Picayune (now the Los Angeles Times).
The newspaper is known for its sexy headlines, celebrity gossip, classified ads, and intense city news coverage. It is a major source of information for the local community. The paper has a number of bureaus throughout the city, including offices at City Hall and One Police Plaza. The paper also has a presence in the suburbs through various local papers. The newspaper has a reputation for being an aggressive tabloid, often making political commentary and inventing rumours about public figures.
In the past, the Daily News was one of the largest newspapers in the United States and had the largest circulation of any metropolitan newspaper at its peak in the mid-20th century. At the time, it was locked in a fierce circulation battle with its rival, the New York Post. The paper’s top editor in recent years was Mortimer Zuckerman, who led the paper to its most successful period.
Despite its size, the Daily News is still facing problems as the newspaper struggles to survive its turbulent ownership. Its parent company, Tribune Publishing, was taken over by the cost-cutting hedge fund Alden Global Capital last year. The newspaper has seen a series of layoffs and buyouts, and its printing plant is being outsourced.
It is unclear if the Daily News will make it through this crisis, and whether it will remain a newspaper. The paper has a storied history and its loss would be a blow to the city.
