What is World News?

World News

World News is a category of news reporting that covers events outside the borders of a single country. It is often distinguished from “national” news, which covers events related to the internal affairs of a nation and its government, such as foreign wars, or summits of international organizations that affect the interests of a particular region.

At the dawn of modern journalism, the distinction between world and national news was not clear: even in 17th-century Europe, where nation-states were still emerging, most daily newspapers carried a large proportion of foreign news. This can be seen in the courants of that time, which included the likes of the Daily Courant (England), the Nieuwe Tijudinger (Antwerp), the Relation or Zeitung (Strasbourg) and the Avisa Relation oder Zeitung (Wolfenbuttel).
