Five News Update - New York Daily News - Netflix

The New York Daily News, officially titled Daily News, is an American newspaper based in New York City. As of May 2016, it was the ninth-most widely circulated daily newspaper in the United States. It was founded in 1919, and was the first U.S. daily printed in tabloid format. Since 2017, it has been owned by the news publishing company Tronc.

Five News Update - Noteworthy front pages - Netflix

In 1928, a News reporter strapped a small camera to his leg, and shot a photo of Ruth Snyder being executed in the electric chair. The next day's newspaper carried the headline “DEAD!”.

On October 29, 1975, President Gerald Ford gave a speech denying federal assistance to spare New York City from bankruptcy. The front page of the October 30, 1975 Daily News read: “FORD TO CITY: DROP DEAD.” In the year leading up to the 2016 presidential election, the paper's headlines became more provocative, helping to rejuvenate it and, with more opinionated editorials with the aforementioned headlines, once again demonstrate its place in the city's media. Following the 2015 San Bernardino shooting, in which 14 people were killed, the paper's front page displayed “GOD ISN'T FIXING THIS” along with tweets from Republican politicians offering thoughts and prayers. The paper advocated for tighter gun laws, condemning what it described as “empty platitudes and angry rhetoric” rather than action “in response to the ongoing plague of gun violence in our country.” The provocative headline received both praise and criticism. On January 2016, after Republican senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz of Texas disparaged “New York values” in a Republican primary debate, the News responded with a cover page headline reading “DROP DEAD, TED” and showing the Statue of Liberty giving the middle finger.
