After the World War II, the Daily News supported a moderate, centrist position. It supported the anti-Communist isolationism of President Franklin Roosevelt and opposed President Truman’s policies on race. The paper also espoused a conservative populism, which continued throughout the 1950s and 1960s. In the 1970s, the Daily News’s circulation dropped. It was no longer able to keep a city’s attention with a single headline. In the 1980s, Tribune Publishing, which owned The Daily News, began to shift the newspaper’s newsroom. In the 1990s, the newsroom was cut in half, and the newspaper moved from its former headquarters on East 42nd Street to another location on West 33rd Street.
The Daily News is the largest circulation newspaper in the New York City area. It has local bureaus in Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. It also publishes a newspaper in the towns of Genesee, Wyoming, and Orleans counties. In addition to local news, the Daily News also publishes a variety of articles and magazines. In addition, The Daily News’s website has become one of the most comprehensive news websites in the country.
The Daily News is also widely read in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The newspaper’s newsroom is home to journalists such as Bill Gallo, who wrote an article about a wooden bench that has been moved from its former headquarters on East 42nd to its new home on West 33rd Street. Several of the Daily News’s mainstays sat on the bench, including legendary boxing writer Jimmy Cannon.
The Daily News’s editorial position has been described by the New York Times as being “highly-minded” and “flexibly centrist”. The paper has won multiple awards for feature writing, photography, and advertising.
