Learn About the Daily News

News articles are a great way for students to learn about current events and the world around them. Students can analyze what is happening in the daily news, what the cause of the event might be, and how people are reacting to it. News articles are also a great way for students to practice reading comprehension skills and vocabulary building. Oftentimes, a newspaper article will have a headline that must catch the readers attention in order to get them to read it. The headline will usually be short, emotional, or intriguing. A headline is the most important part of the news article, as it is what will make the reader want to continue on with the article.

The New York Daily News is an American tabloid newspaper published in New York City. It is the first successful American tabloid and once had the highest circulation of any newspaper in the United States. It was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News and is credited with being the first newspaper to use tabloid format. The paper is known for its screamer headlines, intense city news coverage, and celebrity gossip. In addition to a traditional news section, it has a strong sports presence and features the New York Yankees, Mets, and Giants.

Each Daily News article contains “Comprehension” and “Critical Thinking” questions that allow students to understand the content of the article in a more deeper manner. Each question has a link to additional resources (video clips, maps, websites, etc) to further help students with their understanding. These questions can be found beneath each article, on our website, in the Student News Daily App, and in each daily email sent to teachers.

In the 1920s, the New York Daily News, along with many other popular newspapers, found abundant subject matter in political wrongdoing such as the Teapot Dome scandal and social intrigue such as Wallis Simpson’s romance with King Edward VIII, which resulted in his abdication. It was also an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and developed a large staff of photographers.

The New York Daily News was one of the most influential papers in its time and helped set a trend for tabloid journalism in America. It was the largest newspaper in the world at its peak circulation, but has since fallen to 11th in circulation. The newspaper has spawned several spin-offs including the TV and radio stations WPIX and WFAN, which still operate out of the former Daily News building in downtown New York. The newspaper is currently owned by the Tribune Company.
