Daily News is an American tabloid newspaper founded in 1878 and based in New York City. In its heyday, it was known as a brawny metro tabloid that excelled at digging into crime and corruption, and served as the model for the tabloid depicted in the 1994 movie “The Paper”. In modern times, it has continued to maintain a reputation for investigative reporting and commentary and won Pulitzer Prizes for both.
Despite the growing popularity of electronic delivery methods, newspapers have remained a significant source of information for many readers. Their content is broad and diverse, covering political events, world and local affairs, sports, entertainment, business and financial news, as well as the arts and culture. They are often regarded as the most authoritative and trustworthy sources of information, and they provide an important forum for discussion and debate.
Most large daily newspapers are divided into sections for general, business and/or political news, sports, entertainment, and/or classified ads. They are usually numbered in a logical manner, with the first section starting on the left-hand page and each subsequent section beginning on the right-hand page (for example, A1-A20, B1-B20, C1-C20). Newspapers also typically include opinion articles called “op-eds” that express the views of guest writers and letters to the editor which readers can send in.
The overall manager of a newspaper, and most commonly its owner, is called the publisher. Depending on the size of the newspaper, it may have various departments, including editorial, production/printing, circulation, and advertising. It may also have non-newspaper-specific departments such as accounting, human resources and marketing.
As part of their mission to serve the public, most newspapers have an ombudsman who is charged with investigating complaints from readers and resolving them. In addition, many have a code of ethics to uphold and promote journalistic integrity. They may also employ stringent corrections policies and publish editorials that explain their rationale and process.
The ombudsman and code of ethics are intended to help prevent bias, which can lead to misreporting, inaccuracies, or unfounded allegations. However, they are not foolproof. Misreporting or omitting crucial information can still occur even when the journalist is not biased.
