Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, the Daily News was the first successful American tabloid newspaper. It quickly became the largest-selling in the nation. Its main attraction was sensational crime and scandal coverage, lurid photographs, cartoons, and comics.
Today the Daily News has a circulation of 2.27 million copies per day, which ranks it among the top five daily newspapers in the United States. It is headquartered in New York City, with bureaus throughout the city and several satellite offices. It also has a TV station and a radio station.
The Daily News has a flexible editorial stance, ranging from moderately liberal to right-wing Republican. It is a popular paper in the city of New York, but has been criticized for its partisan politics. It was a strong supporter of isolationism during World War II, but began to shift its stance in the 1990s.
There is a controversy over a painting depicting Mexican Revolution hero Emiliano Zapata wearing nothing but a pink hat and high heels while straddling an aroused horse. The artwork, which is currently on display at a museum in Mexico City, has drawn massive protests and sparked a brawl.
Another controversy involves a satirical Liberty Mutual commercial that features caricature-themed jokes and asks whether Brian Quinn, the comedian who made a famous cameo on the Impractical Jokers television show, is actually a raccoon. The jokes are funny, but they are not appropriate for young children.
