The New York Daily News is a newspaper that was founded in 1892 and is now the oldest newspaper still in print. Like other popular dailies of its day, it emphasized political wrongdoing such as the Teapot Dome Scandal and social intrigue like Wallis Simpson’s romance with King Edward VIII that led to his abdication. It also emphasized photography and was an early user of the Associated Press wire photo service.
As the world’s most prestigious and influential newspaper, The Daily News has a long tradition of investigative journalism, and has been at the forefront in the fight for civil rights and other important issues for over a century. In addition, The Daily News provides the community with a wealth of information and entertainment, including local, national and international news, sports, business, features, music, and more.

Despite the many challenges it has faced in its nearly 125 years of publishing, The Daily News continues to deliver quality journalism to millions of readers each week.
