The Daily News is an American newspaper founded in 1919 and published in New York City. Among the first newspapers printed in tabloid format, it has won eleven Pulitzer Prizes and had a storied history as one of the country’s best-selling papers before declining in circulation in recent decades. It was sold to Tronc in 2017 for $1. The Daily News is known for its sensational headlines and for exposing the Teapot Dome scandal, Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII’s romance, and several murders in the 1920s. It was also the first paper to introduce color photographs to newspaper readers and an early user of Associated Press wirephotos.
The newspaper is divided into sections devoted to national and international news, local news (city, state, county, school), sports, entertainment, and neighborhood news. In addition to articles, newspapers will typically contain editorials and obituaries. Newspapers are generally printed in black and white but some papers may use color for special sections or to highlight important photos.
News articles cover a wide range of topics, from politics to sports to science and arts. They often feature interviews with government officials, celebrities, and people involved in local events. They may also include information about upcoming events or public announcements. Newspapers are usually published daily or weekly, with increased coverage on weekends.
Newspaper articles are normally written by staff members or freelancers. They may be edited and proofed for accuracy and style. They are then printed on large sheets of paper and folded into multiple sections, each with its own column heading. The lead article in each section is normally placed at the top of the page. Other articles in the same section are normally placed in order of significance within that section.
A typical newspaper will have a small number of full-page and full-color advertisements. These are often placed in the main section of the newspaper or as special inserts into the paper. In addition, many newspapers have a separate section devoted to classified advertising.
Editorials: A newspaper’s editorial department is responsible for providing its political and social views on newsworthy issues. Editorials are generally published at the front of the paper and might be accompanied by an editorial cartoon or photo. The paper’s editorial stance might be characterized as either liberal or conservative.
In the past, the paper supported isolationism in the 1940s and later adopted a more conservative populist view. In the 1970s, it began shifting its stance and has since become known as a moderately liberal alternative to the more conservative Post.
