World news or international news is simply the worldwide news jargon for worldwide news, generally on a national or an international topic. These types of news are normally presented in a non-stop manner and are usually updated daily. In this sense they differ greatly from news which is normally reported in a United States based newspaper. Such news is generally not internationally known, as it would not cater to a global audience and would have to be published or relayed differently.
The work of these correspondents and news agencies is normally carried out through a number of platforms such as television, radio, internet and print media. Many correspondents and freelance news agencies are operating within the freelancing platform and are therefore not bound to a specific time table and cannot be deadlines based. Many of them prefer to write their own stories or simply make recommendations for topics of current interest or the latest development within a particular region or country. In some cases, freelance foreign correspondents might also take on small jobs for international or foreign-based businesses or consultancies.
In countries like the United States, the Department of State hires private citizens to travel around the world and represent the United States at various international venues and media events such as press conferences and press tours in order to provide objective reporting on US Government policies, programs, and officials. These professional journalists work for agencies such as the State department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research and Analysis, which seeks to” disseminate reliable information from U.S. sources to U.S. audiences overseas,” according to its web site. Some of these freelance foreign correspondents are based in the United States. Other freelance correspondents and freelance news agencies may be based in other countries such as India, Pakistan, South Africa, China, Russia, Arab countries, or some African countries.
