Daily News is a newspaper which carries information about political events, personalities and scandals; business and finance; crime, weather and natural disasters; sports; society, food and cooking; fashion, home fashion and design. Many newspapers include editorials, commentaries and reviews. Most newspapers are published regularly, either daily or weekly, and are available in printed form or online.
A major factor in the success of a newspaper is its circulation, which measures how many copies are sold in a given area or region. This measure is usually calculated on a weekly basis, and it takes into account factors such as subscriptions, single-copy sales and the number of readers. The greater the circulation of a newspaper, the more likely it is to attract advertisers.
While circulation has declined in recent years, newspapers still have a substantial readership and remain an important source of news for people around the world. However, as other media compete with print and broadcast, the market penetration of newspapers has dropped significantly over the past century.
The Yale Daily News is an independent student newspaper that was first published in 1878 and remains the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States. It has been a primary source of discussion and debate at Yale for more than 140 years, and its staff members have gone on to prominent careers in journalism and public life, including William F. Buckley, John Hersey, Sargent Shriver, Joseph Lieberman, Lan Samantha Chang, Strobe Talbott, and Garry Trudeau.
In its 20th-century heyday, The New York Daily News was a brawny metro tabloid that thrived when it dug into crime and corruption, winning Pulitzer Prizes for commentary and feature writing. Today it has a comparatively modest circulation but still publishes a strong local section, intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads and comics. It has also won the distinction of being referred to as “the real paper of Clark Kent” in reference to the famous superhero.
In some countries, a Sunday newspaper may be published separately from the daily edition and is often called a Sunday edition. This separate publication is sometimes a subset of the Daily News, but in some cases it is produced by a different publisher and has a distinct name, e.g. The Times and The Sunday Times in the United Kingdom. In other countries, the same publisher often produces a separate Sunday edition but retains the name of the daily newspaper, e.g. The New York Times. A few newspapers focus on specific interest groups, such as businesses or sports, and are published on a weekly basis. These are usually free and circulate within a limited regional area.
