The New York Daily News is a tabloid newspaper founded in 1919, the first successful daily tabloid in the United States. In the early 1920s it attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal and violence, lurid photographs, cartoons and other entertainment features. The newspaper’s sexy image helped it fend off competition from its rival, the New York Post, which had a reputation for more serious journalism.
By the 1930s, the Daily News had expanded into a full-scale metropolitan daily with a circulation of over 2 million. The newspaper found abundant subject matter in the political wrongdoing of the Teapot Dome scandal and social intrigue such as Wallis Simpson’s romance with King Edward VIII that led to his abdication. The Daily News was also an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and developed a large staff of photographers.
In the mid-1940s, the Daily News began to lose ground to its more prestigious rivals as readers grew tired of its sensational coverage. But the paper retained a strong following among urban working class people and became a trusted source of information about city life. Its editorials, especially those by the editor, William Randolph Hearst, drew heavily on socialist ideas and were influential in shaping public opinion.
