World news or world media or global news is basically the worldwide news terminology for worldwide news stories, about a national or a global topic. Some world news stories are carried by major newspapers while others get reported in TV and other media across the globe. It can also be reported from the blog sites and websites that have their share of readers all over the world. As the name itself suggests, world news is what people from anywhere in the world are talking about at any given time. World news is the lingua franca of the world as it is almost the only thing that every individual, no matter what part of the world they live in, can talk about.
Most of the world’s news agencies have their own news channels and digital websites on the Internet and most television news portals also have online news sources apart from their normal TV news section. There are many websites dedicated to bringing you the full-text version of world news stories, but not all of them are completely reliable. Many are only mere propaganda tools to promote the ideas and policies of various governments and news agencies while others have become full-text repositories only. All news agencies strive to maintain a good standing with the newspapers and magazines by being completely truthful in their reporting.
There are many foreign correspondents who work hard to bring you the world news. Foreign correspondents are usually given interviews by foreign correspondents in their home countries before they report their stories to their home newspapers and magazines. These reporters who travel to different countries in search of news have to keep in touch with their home newspapers and magazines by fax or by radio to confirm the details provided to them by their foreign correspondents. These reporters also have to read the local newspapers and magazines to understand the culture and the people and then prepare their stories accordingly.
