The daily news is the main source of information for many people. It can cover anything from politics to sports to celebrities to everyday events. Often, it can be controversial and cause debate. It can also be a source of education and information. There are many types of daily news articles that can be found online, in print and on television.

Founded on January 28, 1878, the Yale Daily News is America’s oldest college daily newspaper and serves both the community of Yale and New Haven. The News is a non-profit organization and is financially and editorially independent from the university. In addition to the daily newspaper, the News also publishes a Friday supplement known as WKND and various special issues each year in collaboration with Yale’s cultural centers and affiliated student groups.

At its peak, the Daily News had a daily circulation of more than 200,000. The paper had a reputation for sensationalism and a brassy, pictorial style. Its coverage of World War II bolstered its image as a leading newspaper. During this time the Daily News also became an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and employed a large staff of photographers. Its columns were written by prominent columnists such as Ed Sullivan, who later hosted the popular Ed Sullivan Show on CBS.

By the late 1980s, however, the newspaper was struggling and began losing market share to rival tabloids like the New York Post. The Daily News lost 145,000 subscribers in one year due to a multi-union strike. In order to continue publishing during the strike, the Daily News hired non-union replacement workers. The Tribune Company, which owned the Daily News at this time, would later adopt a similar strategy in Chicago, leading to its reputation as a union-buster.

In 1993, the Daily News was sold to Mort Zuckerman, who had already successfully negotiated contracts with nine of the newspaper’s ten unions. By the end of the 1990s, circulation continued to decline and in 2017 the paper was bought by Tronc Inc., which then went on a firing spree that reduced the staff to fewer than forty employees.
