Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson in New York City, the Daily News was one of the first American newspapers to be distributed nationally and internationally. The newspaper’s original motto, “Democracy, Liberty and Justice for All,” was influenced by the Declaration of Independence. The paper was an early champion of civil rights, and was the first newspaper to report on the lynchings of African Americans. The Daily News was the first to introduce color photographs in an American newspaper, and its comics section was among the most popular of its time. The newspaper also featured intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads and a sports section.

Amid the digital disruption to journalism, local papers have struggled to adapt. Many have closed, leaving communities with little access to traditional news sources. This trend has been most visible in the southwestern Pennsylvania town of McKeesport, where residents lost their local newspaper in 2015. In Death of the Daily News, Andrew Conte examines what happened to this small town and how the lessons from its story can be applied to the larger landscape of news deserts across America.

In the digital age, much of the video news consumed on Facebook comes from television, but a significant share is created for online use. In our latest study of the top news videos on Facebook, we looked at whether they were made for digital use or repurposed from TV content. Most of the top online news videos (71%) were created specifically for digital distribution. The rest were repurposed from TV or originated as raw agency content.
