Daily News, a newspaper based in New York City, is the largest city daily and one of the leading newspapers in the United States. It was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, and became the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States. Originally a broadsheet, it shifted to the tabloid format in 1922, and grew to a circulation of over 2 million. Its early success was due to sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and cartoons.
