world news

World news is the news media jargon for any kind of global coverage. In practice, this could mean news coming from outside the country where a reporter is located or news about a subject that transcends national borders. This category of reporting has existed since the 19th century, when it became possible to send a story from abroad via innovations in telecommunications technology. The first major news agencies, such as Reuters, AP and Wolff, were founded to help make it easier for newspapers to report foreign stories.
