The Death of the Daily News by Andrew Conte is a richly written book about the loss of a newspaper in Pennsylvania and the struggle that follows. The book explores the devastating impact of losing a local paper and offers hope that local journalism can revive.
As the author notes, a local newspaper is a necessary part of the culture of a city. It gives voice to the disadvantaged and provides comfort to the afflicted. When the Daily News was founded in 1919, it was the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States. With large photographs and sensational coverage of crime, it drew readers.
Today, the Daily News features an opinion section as well as an op-ed page. It also has a sports section and classified ads. A digital edition of the newspaper is available, providing a more enhanced reading experience. Users can swipe through the newspaper pages or send stories via email. This interactive version of the newspaper is available on smartphones, desktop computers, and tablets. In 2016, the Daily News had a circulation of 200,000.
Since then, the Daily News has won numerous awards for its reporting. The Pulitzer Prize for public service went to the newspaper in 2017. But, with its circulation declining, the newspaper is now financially in trouble. To save the paper, Tronc, a media company based in Chicago, purchased it for one dollar in 2017.
While the Daily News has suffered a decline in circulation, it has maintained strong local news coverage. It maintains a network of bureaus in Brooklyn and Queens.
The daily newspaper’s mission is to keep track of New York’s happenings. Readers can get an inside look at the City through the Daily News’s interactive edition, which includes interactive features. Using a computer or mobile device, you can swipe between pages to find what interests you. You can also share your own stories with friends through email.
During its heyday, the Daily News boasted a large staff of photographers. Some of the best known were the “Camera Guys” who shot images of the world’s most scandalous crimes and scandalous individuals. Among the countless people who have worked for the Daily News are legendary boxing writer Jimmy Cannon and the great Dick Young.
In the 1970s, the Daily News began shifting away from its conservative roots. It started to focus on social intrigue, crime, and politics. Towards the end of the 1980s, it began to shift into a more centrist stance.
However, the newspaper continued to win accolades for its investigative reporting. One of the earliest examples of this is its work on the coronavirus pandemic. During this time, the Daily News was able to cover the pandemic from a remote location.
Today, the Daily News has a circulation of over 200,000. It has won several awards for feature writing and commentary. The publication’s opinion section is one of the most popular sections. Although it has a strong local focus, the paper covers global issues as well.
