The Yale Daily News is the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States. It has been the primary source of news and debate at Yale since its founding in 1878, and many YDN editors and contributors have gone on to become important figures in journalism and public life. The YDN Historical Archive provides free, digital access to printed issues from the past 140 years.
The Daily News features intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics, a sports section, and an opinion page. In addition, it offers the latest science news and features, an arts section, a weekend magazine, and a travel guide. The paper also has a strong emphasis on education, politics, and social commentary.
Each day, the newspaper publishes a wide range of editorial content from its staff and freelancers. Typically, the newspaper includes one feature story on a topic of local interest and several shorter stories covering a variety of subjects. In addition, the Daily News has a large number of syndicated columns by well-known authors. The newspaper’s editorials take a liberal stance on most political issues, and it frequently contrasts itself with its conservative rival, the New York Post.
Its website is a major source of online traffic, with the top 50 newspapers in 2022 having an average monthly unique visitor count of about 8.8 million. The site’s content is also distributed to a wide variety of mobile apps and other digital platforms.
In terms of circulation, the newspaper is a major force in New York City and its suburban and rural markets. It has a broad national readership as well, thanks to its extensive travel coverage and coverage of business news. The Daily News is a tabloid in size and format, and it has long been regarded as the nation’s premier news organization.
