▪ American newspaper
now known as  People's Weekly World  (since 1999), formerly  The Worker  (1958–68) , Daily World  (1968–86) , and  People's Daily World 

      newspaper published in New York City that generally reflects the views of the Communist Party of the United States.

      The Daily Worker was variously the organ and the “semiofficial” voice of the party, and its readers have included numerous U.S. government intelligence agents, who also have monitored its list of subscribers. In 1958 the paper became a weekly under the title of The Worker. A decade later it returned to daily publication (Tuesday through Saturday) and was renamed the Daily World, partly in an attempt to broaden its audience. It covers societal developments and labour news, with editorials and political commentary reflecting the views of the Communist Party. In the United Kingdom the similarly oriented Daily Worker was published in London and for similar reasons was renamed the Morning Star.

      In 1986 the American newspaper's name changed to the People's Daily World; it changed yet again to People's Weekly World, which in 1999 had a circulation of around 40,000. The weekly is published by Long View Publishing Company in New York City.
