World news, also called international news, foreign coverage, or global news, refers to news from around the globe. This can be about a country, or it can be about an entire subject that affects all of us. World news is often more interesting than local news because it can provide a wider perspective on events that affect our lives.
News agencies are responsible for gathering and distributing the world’s news. These news agencies provide articles in bulk via wire services, which originally used telegraphy but are now often run on the Internet. Some journalists specialize in world news and other news topics. For example, journalists specializing in war and political affairs may report on the conflict in Afghanistan.
While there are numerous sources for news, the BBC is one of the most reputable. The BBC has been in existence since 1826. Its weekly magazine covers US and international current events. It is one of the most widely read and respected news services, and more than half of its circulation is sold in the United States.
