An icon of New York City, the New York Daily News was once the country’s largest newspaper. Founded on January 28, 1878, it was the first newspaper to report a murder and to use photographs to identify a suspect. It grew into a venerable institution, publishing political wrongdoings such as the Teapot Dome scandal and social intrigue such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII, and was an early user of Associated Press wirephoto services. From 1929 to 1995, the News was headquartered at 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, an official city and national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood that later served as the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman movies.
The News’s editorial stance shifted over the decades, moving from isolationism to a more populist, conservative platform. It became a major rival to The New York Post, which had long been the country’s leading conservative tabloid. The News’s last editor, Jim Rich, reinvigorated the tabloid as an anti-Trump answer to the Post and made it the top seller among New York metro newspapers. But the newspaper’s owner, Tribune Publishing, sold it to a cost-slashing hedge fund, Alden Global Capital, in 2017.
Andrew Conte’s Death of the Daily News is a searching and deeply reported study of the life-and-death struggle of a small town’s local news source. His account is a disturbing reminder of the societal costs of the rapid expansion of ‘news deserts’ across America. This is a book of both deep insight and unfailing empathy.
