World News or global news or world coverage or international news is the generic news terminology for worldwide news, usually about a global topic or a region. These news agencies are generally state-funded and are accessible throughout the world by radio, television or newspaper. It covers all major countries in the world such as: China, Russia, India, Pakistan, Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Japan, Nigeria, Egypt, Venezuela, South Africa and many more. It also includes all major political countries in the world including: Canada, Mexico, Switzerland, Italy, West Indies and Others.
Some of the biggest international newspapers and television networks, such as CNN and BBC operate news agencies providing worldwide coverage on major events, political developments, and natural disasters. However, it is necessary to acknowledge that the vast majority of world news coverage is produced by local newspapers, television and radio stations and published news agencies. A great majority of the stories and reports come from non-American sources. This is because the majority of correspondents and reporters are native speakers from the respective countries they report on. However, many Americans, particularly Asian-Americans and Chinese-Americans are among the largest readers of world news. In fact, some media critics have noted that although Asian-Americans and Chinese-Americans make up a large part of the world’s population and they constitute a large percentage of the world’s news readers, most Asians and Chinese Americans have not been able to break into the traditionally white American market because of their ethnic backgrounds.
Many journalists who work for world news agencies to live and work in different countries and cultures. Most reporters and correspondents have to adapt to their new countries and cultures. They learn English and practice their mother tongue in order to be able to write the stories in a manner that holds their own unique and individual native tongues and dialects. It may be an emotional and trying time for foreign correspondents living overseas, particularly when a nation has undergone turmoil, conflict, or war. Reporters covering international news need to overcome the language and culture barriers that they will face while reporting on the conflicts and events.
The diversity of the world’s population means that not all newspapers and news organizations are equal when it comes to publishing world news. There are many differences between the print media that American and European news organizations publish compared to the Asian versions. As such, it is important that these international news agencies have their own dedicated news bureaus in Asian countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, India, and Indonesia. Most of these agencies also hire local correspondents with expertise in their area of expertise to provide commentaries on their stories.
The largest city in India and one of the fastest growing cities in the world, Beijing and also known as the “Beijing Evening” is well renowned and attracts millions of travelers every year. The capital of China has long been a favorite destination of many tourists and international travelers. For this reason, there are numerous news organizations dedicated to providing this side of the story by publishing reports from the Chinese capital. In addition to the capital, there are other major cities like Shanghai, Beijing, and Beijing itself. All of these cities are served by a number of International news agencies that have combined in keeping the residents in touch with the latest news.
Similar to their counterparts in Washington D.C., Foreign correspondents in Beijing and Jerusalem follow a very strict code of ethics when conducting interviews and traveling to foreign locations. Reporters working for foreign correspondents must adhere to the same ethical code of conduct as they would if they were in the US. Reporters are expected to observe both normal business practices and cultural norms while conducting an interview. Reporters who violate any part of this code are subject to disciplinary action.
