The Daily News

The Daily News is an American tabloid newspaper founded in 1919 and currently owned by tronc. The News is based in New York City and features intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, a sports section, and an opinion section. Its editorials are primarily oriented to the New York metropolitan area and often focus on political issues. The newspaper has a reputation for tabloid sensationalism and was one of the first U.S. newspapers to adopt a daily tabloid format.

In the 1920s, the Daily News found abundant subject matter in political wrongdoing such as the Teapot Dome scandal and social intrigue such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to his abdication. The newspaper also emphasized photography; it was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service in the 1930s and developed a large staff of photographers.

By the 1970s, the newspaper was locked in a circulation battle with its even more sensational rival, The New York Post. The News once boasted of its ability to “drop dead a headline,” which it did with the 1975 screamer, “Ford to City: Drop Dead.” The Daily News continued to maintain local bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens until the 1980s when they were closed due to declining revenues.

Throughout its history, the Daily News has been a leading voice in New York politics. In recent years, the newspaper has exhibited a pro-Democratic lean in its editorials, although it is a free-standing publication that is not affiliated with any party. The News has a long and varied history of supporting liberal causes such as civil rights, women’s equality, and LGBT rights.

The News has an AllSides Media Bias Rating of Left, our highest media bias rating. Sources with this rating consistently report news in ways that align with liberal, progressive, or left-wing thought and/or policy agendas.
