A daily newspaper is a periodical publication consisting of printed or written matter, either in whole or in part, that is published once each business day. It normally includes news events, editorials, insights and advertisements. It might also include sports and entertainment, classifieds, and neighborhood news.
Most newspapers are printed on large sheets of newsprint and folded. They are typically printed in black, although some may use color to highlight particular sections of the paper or to publish important photographs.
Newspapers are usually divided into several sections, with the most important news events appearing on the front pages of each section. The newspaper’s editorial stance will determine which topics are highlighted and which are given less coverage. This is known as the news hierarchy.
The New York Daily News is a tabloid-style newspaper known for its sensational headlines and focus on local news. It has a liberal bias, and its editorial content often reflects this. The newspaper was founded in 1919 and is currently owned by Tronc, which purchased the newspaper in 2017 for $1.
It has a low level of trustworthiness and credibility, according to Ad Fontes Media. This means that it is more likely to have a liberal bias and is less reliable than other sources.
During the 1920s, The Daily News was very popular among the working class because it focused on scandals and social intrigue. The paper emphasized political wrongdoing like the Teapot Dome Scandal, and social intrigue such as Wallis Simpson’s romance with King Edward VIII, which led to his abdication from the throne. The paper also devoted significant attention to photography and was an early adopter of the Associated Press wire photo service. The Yale Daily News Historical Archive allows users to search digitized versions of the printed newspaper dating back to 1878. This collection can be accessed free of charge with a Hayward library card. The archived articles are not intended to be a comprehensive collection of every article that appeared in the paper. They are, however, a valuable resource for historians and researchers. They are also a great resource for students studying history and civics. The articles in the archive contain comprehension and critical thinking questions, which are found below each news story. Each question is followed by “Background” and “Resources” (including video clips, maps, links, and more) to help students understand the news story. This resource was developed by the Yale Center for Teaching and Learning.
