The Daily News at Yale

The Daily News is a New York-based tabloid newspaper founded in 1919. Known for zesty headlines (the 1975 screamer “Ford to City: Drop Dead!” comes to mind), gossip, and local coverage, the Daily News is the oldest continuously published paper in the United States and was one of the first successful tabloid newspapers in the country. The News has won a number of Pulitzer Prizes, including the recent award shared with ProPublica for exposing how the city used an obscure law to evict hundreds of families from their homes.

The News is also the home of legendary sports columnist Jimmy Breslin and renowned investigative reporter Pete Hamill. The Daily News has long competed with its even more sensational rival, the New York Post, in circulation and in star columnists.

Each day, Daily News award-winning writers, columnists and opinion formers bring readers the very latest national and local news from the world’s greatest city and beyond.
