New York Newsday
''New York Newsday'' was an American daily newspaper that primarily served New York City and was sold throughout the New York metropolitan area. The paper, established in 1985, was a New York City-specific offshoot of '' Newsday'', a Long Island-based newspaper that preceded (and succeeded) ''New York Newsday''. The paper was closed by its owner, Times Mirror Company, in July 1995. History In its 10 years of existence, ''New York Newsday'' won three Pulitzer Prizes. Despite the critical praise, the paper struggled to build an audience that could support the economics of publishing in the New York metropolitan area. Circulation peaked at 300,000 and was 231,000 at the time of closure. ''New York Newsday'' invigorated local coverage in New York, especially at ''The New York Times'', but Mark Willes, the CEO of Times Mirror Company, had great reservations about its success and viability. In an interview with ''Newsweek'' magazine, he said, "Once I got inside the company, not only ...

Tabloid (newspaper Format)
A tabloid is a newspaper with a compact page size smaller than broadsheet. There is no standard size for this newspaper format. Etymology The word ''tabloid'' comes from the name given by the London-based pharmaceutical company Burroughs Wellcome & Co. to the compressed tablets they marketed as "Tabloid" pills in the late 1880s. The connotation of ''tabloid'' was soon applied to other small compressed items. A 1902 item in London's ''Westminster Gazette'' noted, "The proprietor intends to give in tabloid form all the news printed by other journals." Thus ''tabloid journalism'' in 1901, originally meant a paper that condensed stories into a simplified, easily absorbed format. The term preceded the 1918 reference to smaller sheet newspapers that contained the condensed stories. Types Tabloid newspapers, especially in the United Kingdom, vary widely in their target market, political alignment, editorial style, and circulation. Thus, various terms have been coined to descr ...
