The Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college daily newspaper. Published every weekday during the academic year, it serves the Yale and New Haven communities. Founded in 1878, the News is editorially and financially independent from the University. The News is staffed by a staff of student editors and writers and a group of advisers who have included such notable alumni as William F. Buckley, Lan Samantha Chang, Joseph Lieberman, Strobe Talbott, and Daniel Yergin.
The News has a long history of covering national and local political stories, crime, celebrities, and culture. It is known for its photojournalism and is an early innovator in the use of photography to tell a story. It was also one of the first newspapers to use a photojournalist embedded on a military operation, as well as to hire a female reporter.
In recent years the newspaper has exhibited a moderate-to liberal bias. This is most evident in its coverage of the Middle East, where it has a strong anti-Israeli stance. The News has a wide readership and its articles are often debated in schools, workplaces and on television.
The death of local journalism would be a depressing book in anyone else’s hands, but Conte’s brilliant examination of what happens when a paper dies in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, offers clues to how it could be saved, and hope that it will be. This is a must-read for all who care about the future of the press.
