The newspaper is well known for its sensational and lurid coverage of crime, scandal and violence, as well as celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics and sports coverage.
The News has an AllSides media bias rating of Left, meaning that the paper tends to lean toward liberal and progressive thought and policies. This is in contrast to the paper’s competitor, the New York Post, which has a right-wing bias.

It also emphasized photographic coverage, and was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service.
