World News is the term media outlets use to describe news from abroad. The news may come from correspondents in other cities (who file regularly to the home office), or – more commonly – from wire services that send articles in bulk using distance communication technologies, such as the Internet. These services are typically used by the large newspapers, but also by smaller publications, corporations and individuals, as well as intelligence agencies.
The first news agencies were founded in the 19th century, with the advent of innovations such as the telegraph, making it easier for them to distribute their material around the globe. Traditionally, these organizations prepare hard news stories and other material, which they then sell in bulk to their clients, who may include the major newspapers, but also small local papers, individuals, companies, and intelligence agencies.
