The paper is owned by the Daily Mail and General Trust. A survey in found the average age of its readers was 58, and it had the lowest demographic for to year-olds among the major British dailies. The Daily Mail has been widely criticised for its unreliability, as well as printing of sensationalist and inaccurate scare stories of science and medical research,      and for copyright violations.

The planned issue was , copies but the print run on the first day was , and additional printing facilities had to be acquired to sustain a circulation which rose to , in Lord Salisbury , 19th-century Prime Minister of the United Kingdom , dismissed the Daily Mail as "a newspaper produced by office boys for office boys.
With Harold running the business side of the operation and Alfred as Editor, the Mail from the start adopted an imperialist political stance, taking a patriotic line in the Second Boer War , leading to claims that it was not reporting the issues of the day objectively. In the Daily Mail began printing simultaneously in both Manchester and London, the first national newspaper to do so in , the Daily Mail had organised special trains to bring the London-printed papers north. The same production method was adopted in by the Daily Sketch , in by the Daily Express and eventually by virtually all the other national newspapers.
Printing of the Scottish Daily Mail was switched from Edinburgh to the Deansgate plant in Manchester in and, for a while, The People was also printed on the Mail presses in Deansgate. In , printing at Deansgate ended and the northern editions were thereafter printed at other Associated Newspapers plants.
The paper continued to award prizes for aviation sporadically until Before the outbreak of World War I , the paper was accused of warmongering when it reported that Germany was planning to crush the British Empire. When war began, Northcliffe's call for conscription was seen by some as controversial, although he was vindicated when conscription was introduced in Kitchener was considered by some to be a national hero. The paper's circulation dropped from 1,, to , Fifteen hundred members of the London Stock Exchange burned unsold copies and called for a boycott of the Harmsworth Press.
Prime Minister H. Asquith accused the paper of being disloyal to the country. When Kitchener died, the Mail reported it as a great stroke of luck for the British Empire. Northcliffe declined. As Lord Northcliffe aged, his grip on the paper slackened and there were periods when he was not involved.
But light-hearted stunts enlivened him, such as the 'Hat campaign' in the winter of There were 40, entries and the winner was a cross between a top hat and a bowler christened the Daily Mail Sandringham Hat.

In , the newspaper established an early example of an offshore radio station aboard a yacht, both as a means of self-promotion and as a way to break the BBC's monopoly. However, the project failed as the equipment was not able to provide a decent signal from overboard, and the transmitter was replaced by a set of speakers. The yacht spent the summer entertaining beach-goers with gramophone records interspersed with publicity for the newspaper and its insurance fund. The Mail was also a frequent sponsor on continental commercial radio stations targeted towards Britain throughout the s and s and periodically voiced support for the legalisation of private radio, something that would not happen until Their opponent was the Conservative Party politician and leader Stanley Baldwin.
The rise of the new party dominated the newspaper and, even though Beaverbrook soon withdrew, Rothermere continued to campaign. Baldwin's position was now in doubt, but in Duff Cooper won the key by-election at St George's, Westminster , beating the United Empire Party candidate, Sir Ernest Petter , supported by Rothermere, and this broke the political power of the press barons.

Journalist John Simpson , in a book on journalism, suggested that Rothermere was referring to the violence against Jews and Communists rather than the detention of political prisoners. The Spectator condemned Rothermere's article commenting that, " The average Daily Mail reader is a potential Blackshirt ready made.
When Lord Rothermere tells his clientele to go and join the Fascists some of them pretty certainly will. Winston Churchill was the chief guest at the banquet and toasted it with a speech. The Daily Mail was transformed by its editor during the s and s, David English. He had been editor of the Daily Sketch from to , when it closed.

The paper enjoyed a period of journalistic success in the s, employing some of the most inventive writers in old Fleet Street including the gossip columnist Nigel Dempster , Lynda Lee-Potter and sportswriter Ian Wooldridge who unlike some of his colleagues—the paper generally did not support sporting boycotts of white-minority-ruled South Africa —strongly opposed apartheid.
The Evening Standard was then part of the Associated Newspapers group, and Dacre was appointed to succeed English at the Daily Mail as a means of dealing with Murdoch's offer.

On international affairs, the Mail broke with the establishment media consensus over the South Ossetia war between Russia and Georgia.
