A daily news is a newspaper that is published on a regular basis, typically once a day. Its contents usually include national and international news and events, as well as local news. The newspaper’s editorial content often reflects a political or social ideology. Some daily newspapers also feature articles on sports, crime, weather and natural disasters, business, and health and medicine. Its articles are written by reporters and journalists, who may be specialized in one or more areas, such as politics, religion, science, or sports. Other staff members, such as photographers and graphic artists, may produce images and illustrations that accompany the news articles.
A daily newspaper can be printed in various formats, including broadsheet and tabloid. It can also be distributed in digital form, either in a magazine format or as web pages. In the past, many daily newspapers were able to achieve high market penetration, with the majority of households receiving the paper. However, as other media outlets started to compete with the daily newspaper industry, this number began to decline.
During the 20th century, The New York Daily News became known as a brawny metro tabloid that thrived on crime and corruption stories. It was the inspiration for the newspaper depicted in the 1994 film “The Paper.” The Daily News has won Pulitzer Prizes in commentary and feature writing, and its name is synonymous with investigative journalism. Today, the newspaper is owned by Tronc, the successor to the Tribune Company.
In its heyday, the Daily News was locked in an circulation battle with its even more sensational rival, The New York Post. While its circulation has since dropped considerably, the newspaper still remains one of the nation’s most widely read daily publications.
The Yale Daily News Historical Archive contains digitized versions of the printed editions of the Yale Daily News, from January 28, 1878 to the present. Its content is freely available to the public.
This archive was made possible by an anonymous gift to the Yale Library. The project has been migrated to a new, more user-friendly platform that allows for ongoing maintenance and development.
In early modern Europe, increased trade and travel allowed people to hear of events from far-flung places more quickly. This led to the rise of concise handwritten newsletters designed to convey news of political and military events and economic developments in cities. These avvisi cost only a gazetta, a small coin. They were the forerunner of the modern daily news.
