The Daily News has a daily circulation of about 2 million copies, making it the eleventh highest-circulated newspaper in the United States as of 2019. It was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson. It was the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States and drew large circulations by covering sensational subjects and lurid photographs.
During the 1920s, the Daily News was one of the most influential dailies in the United States. The paper espoused conservative populism but shifted its stance in the 1940s and became more liberal as the years went on.
It was known for its extensive coverage of political wrongdoing, such as the Teapot Dome Scandal. The paper also delved into social issues, including the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII.
Today The Daily News is owned by Independent Media and published every weekday afternoon in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. It is also a part of Independent Media’s stable of publications that includes 20 of South Africa’s most prominent newspapers and magazines.
