The Daily News

daily news

The daily news is a collection of stories from a variety of sources, curated by the Great Lakes Commission and delivered to your email each day. It includes national and local news, New York exclusives, politics, and the latest in sports, gossip, and entertainment. No one covers the Yankees, Mets, and Giants like the Daily News.

The Yale Daily News is a daily student newspaper published Monday through Friday during the academic year at Yale University. It is the oldest college newspaper in the United States and has been editorially independent since its founding on January 28, 1878. The newspaper has had many alumni go on to careers in journalism and public service, including William F. Buckley, Lan Samantha Chang, John Hersey, Sargent Shriver, and Strobe Talbott. It also has had numerous staff members who have gone on to prominent careers in academia, politics and law.

It is not an exaggeration to say that the era of the local newspaper is dying. Across the country, newspapers are closing, cutting jobs and laying off journalists. Many readers are turning to alternative sources of news, including social media, television and radio. In this environment, it is even more critical that we support the remaining local news outlets and encourage them to explore innovative ways to survive and thrive.

This is an obituary for the old model of local journalism, but it doesn’t have to read all bad. In fact, it offers clues to a way forward.

The 102-year-old New York Daily News has lost its top editor in a shakeup, with insiders blaming ruthless cost-cutting by the paper’s new hedge fund owner. A tumultuous week for the tabloid began with its publisher’s decision to close four other newspapers and outsource printing operations during the coronavirus pandemic, followed by a rumor that the Daily News was considering a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.

The New York Times reports that the Daily News’s new owner, Alden Global Capital, has enacted buyouts, layoffs and furloughs at the company’s MediaNews Group since taking over last year. It has been reported that if the newspaper can’t find a new owner by November, it will file for bankruptcy protection. This could affect the other companies owned by Tribune Publishing, including the Chicago Tribune, Orlando Sentinel and Allentown Morning Call. This would be the first time a major newspaper has filed for Chapter 11. This is an important story and should be followed closely by all of us who care about our local news. The story will continue to develop as more details are revealed. Please share your reactions in the comments section below.
