The Daily News

Founded in 1919, the Daily News bills itself as “New York’s Hometown Newspaper,” informing everyday New Yorkers about their city and more. The paper has been known over the years for zesty headlines — perhaps most famously, “Ford to City: Drop Dead” during the city’s financial woes in 1975 — gossip, intense city coverage and star columnists, including Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill. The paper has also won several Pulitzer Prizes for public service journalism, most recently for an investigation into how local authorities used an obscure law to evict families from their homes.

A news article is a report of current events, usually from the past week or less. The article usually includes important information about the event such as who, what, when, where and why. The article may also include background or other context to help readers understand what the event is all about.

News articles often follow an Inverted Pyramid format, meaning that the most important information (who, what, when, where and why) is placed at the top of the article and other information follows in decreasing importance. This format is designed to allow readers to get the gist of a story quickly and easily.

Most traditional newspapers also feature opinion articles that express a particular point of view on a topic, called editorials, and opinions expressed by guest writers, called op-eds. The papers also typically contain sports sections, classified ads and comics.

A news article usually reports on the news, which is a record of current events and may contain commentary or analysis. It can also be a record of historical events such as wars or natural disasters. News articles are usually written in a narrative style, which is a type of writing that tells a story.
