New York Daily News

Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News is the first tabloid newspaper in the United States. Its circulation was 2.4 million copies per day in 1947. In the 1990s, it was the fifth largest metropolitan daily newspaper in the United States. The Daily News is now owned by Alden Global Capital and is published by Tribune Publishing Company.

The New York Daily News has become a household name. It is widely known for its photography, terse headlines, and sensational coverage of crime. It also features a strong opinion section. The editorial page has often espoused a conservative position, but in recent years it has been more liberal. Its editorial page has also espoused pro-Israel, anti-Castro, and pro-abortion positions.

Illustrated Daily News

During the early 1900s, a lot of attention was paid to the Illustrated Daily News. This new paper was a spinoff of the Daily Mirror, a London tabloid. It was a tad bit expensive to print, but it was a definite success. It was a hit with readers, especially subway riders. In the 1950s, it was merged with another local paper, the Mirror-News. In the heyday of the paper, it was the biggest seller in the city, with a circulation of nearly a million copies.

The Daily News was not a slouch in the production department. It was a pioneer in the field of illustrated newspapers. Its rotogravure section contained a number of pictures of the mayor examining presses.

Yale Daily News

Founded in 1878, the Yale Daily News is one of the oldest college newspapers in America. It is distributed free to the college community in and around New Haven, Connecticut.

The paper’s most notable accomplishment was a 2009 Associated College Press Newspaper Pacemaker Award. As the name implies, the award is bestowed on the newspaper which scores the highest in a survey of its collegiate competition.

The Yale Daily News has a full page art and living section on Fridays, as well as a two page opinion forum on its homepage. The site also boasts a diverse staff including more women and more people of color.
