The Daily News is a New York City-based newspaper founded in 1919. It was the first tabloid newspaper in the United States and is currently owned by Tronc, the publishing operations of the Tribune Company. The newspaper was a self-proclaimed Republican paper until the 1970s, when it began to shift its editorial stance toward moderate to liberal politics. It is often contrasted with its conservative competitor, the New York Post.
The paper has a reputation for sensational coverage of crime and corruption, and frequently features lurid photographs and cartoons. The News is also known for its pro-labor editorial positions, and has long been one of the largest supporters of unions in the country. The newspaper has a high readership among low-income and working-class New Yorkers, and is considered one of the most influential publications in the United States.
Each Daily News article includes comprehension and critical thinking questions that help students understand the news story. The articles also include “Background” and “Resources” sections that provide additional information about the topic. Students can answer the questions in class, at home, or on the go.
