Founded in 1878, Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college newspaper and remains editorially independent. The News publishes Monday through Friday during the academic year and serves both Yale and New Haven communities. It features intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics and a sports section. It also produces special issues including the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue, Commencement Issue and First Year Issue. In addition, the paper has long supported and celebrated its Black, AAPI and Latinx communities through collaborations with Yale’s cultural centers and affiliated student groups.
Daily News has a current AllSides media bias rating of Left. Sources with a media bias rating of Left have a strong tendency to favor liberal, progressive or left-wing thought and/or policy agendas.
The News has been a major competitor of the more conservative rival New York Post for much of its history, with a self-proclaimed stance as “New York’s picture newspaper” (as the nickname of its tabloid format originated). During World War II, the News was a proponent of isolationism. Since the 1980s, however, the News has generally exhibited more of a moderate-to-liberal stance, which it often contrasts to the right-wing Post.
Today the New York Daily News is owned by Tronc, the publishing operations of Tribune Company. It is headquartered at 4 New York Plaza in Manhattan.
The paper was one of the earliest of the United States’ daily tabloids and the first to reach national circulation. Its early popularity was due to sensational news and entertainment stories, lurid photographs and cartoons. In the 1930s, it emphasized political wrongdoing such as the Teapot Dome Scandal and social intrigue such as Wallis Simpson’s romance with King Edward VIII that led to his abdication.
The City of Evanston is providing season beach passes to its residents free of charge to ensure that all citizens have the opportunity to enjoy the city’s public swimming beaches.
