A Collection of Daily News Videos

Founded in 1919, the Daily News soon established itself as one of America’s most influential newspapers. Its sensational pictorial coverage and willingness to go the extra mile for an attention-grabbing front page were key factors in its success during the Roaring Twenties. For example, in 1928, a News reporter strapped a camera to his leg and photographed Ruth Snyder being executed in the electric chair. The newspaper ran the picture the next day with the headline “DEAD!”

Despite declining circulation, the Daily News continued to develop its reputation as a champion of First Amendment rights and the rights of New Yorkers who were traditionally overlooked by other media outlets. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary in 1996 for E.R. Shipp’s pieces on social issues, and in 1998 for Mike McAlary’s coverage of police brutality against Haitian immigrant Abner Louima.

In the 1990s, the Daily News began to shift away from its traditional focus on local and national politics and to concentrate more on societal concerns such as civil rights, crime, welfare and the environment. The paper also expanded its presence in the digital media realm, launching the web site DailyNewsOnline.com in 1994 and the weekly insert BET Weekend for African American readers in 1996.

By the late 2000s, however, the newspaper had suffered its most dramatic decline in decades. As readership dwindled, the Daily News lost more than half of its advertising revenue, and in 2017, owner Mortimer Zuckerman sold the paper to Chicago-based Tronc for $1.

The relaunched Daily News has returned to its roots in recent years, focusing on controversial stories and a willingness to speak out against the powers that be. It has used its platform to call for better treatment of immigrants, expose corruption in city government and promote greater civic engagement. It has also re-established itself as an authority on local elections, covering many ballot measure issues and candidates.
