The paper was originally published daily, but is now issued twice a week. It began as a broadsheet that covered mainly sports and it retained the broadsheet format for many years, but it now publishes in the tabloid format and covers a range of topics and genres in its pages. The paper's main sections are news, culture, mind & body, features, commentary, compendium, and science & technology.

Since 1980, The Daily has been independent from student government. It is published by the Daily Publications Society, whose membership automatically includes all McGill undergraduate students and most graduate students. It is the most widely distributed student publication at McGill. In fact, it currently claims to be the second-largest student newspaper in Canada, with a weekly circulation of 28,000 as of 2005 (together with its francophone sister paper, Le Délit français). Le Délit français, also simply known as Le Délit, is an independent francophone newspaper on the McGill University campus, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. ...

The paper is generally considered the leading progressive voice on the McGill campus, compared to the more centrist McGill Tribune, and the other faculty-specific papers such as the Bull & Bear. The Daily generally endorses progressive student candidates, and backs grassroots student activism and direct action. Much of its features coverage is devoted to issues of social justice, accessibility, and inequality. However, the paper's longstanding policy of publishing almost all letters means that dissenting points of view and lively debate occur within the newspaper's pages. In politics, centrism usually refers to the political ideal of promoting moderate policies which land in the middle ground between different political extremes. ...

Pressed into service (1428 words)
The Daily broke a big story last year that captured the imagination of the national media: the decision of a handful of senators to reject Royal Bank president John Cleghorn as a proposed honorary degree recipient.
For their part, Daily editors say the story raised legitimate questions about the honorary degrees process and who should be entitled to them.
Student journalists, Levitz adds, are paid for their free labour (some editors earn a modest stipend) in the sort of marketable skills that will give them an edge in the job market: a knack for efficient time management, a flair for writing and the ability to deliver on deadline.
