Daily News is a New York City newspaper that provides national and local news, sports, gossip and politics.

In the 1920s, the News pushed for prohibition and supported isolationism in the early stages of World War II, a stance that set it apart from its sensational rival tabloid, The New York Post, which favored a more liberal populist platform.

The News also established WPIX-TV, a New York City television station whose call letters were based on its nickname of “New York’s Picture Newspaper,” in 1948. The station still occupies the former Daily News Building on 42nd Street near Second Avenue, which was designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood in 1929.
