World news is a broad category of reports on global events. The term is sometimes referred to as international news or world coverage. In its broadest sense, world news is news from other countries and regions, whether it is about a country or an international subject. In the United States, the distinction between world news and “national” news is somewhat blurred, as most of the news reported on in the country is also related to that country’s government or institutions. In addition, world news typically includes news sent by foreign correspondents and news agencies, as well as information gathered through distance communication technologies.
In 2011, NotW was awarded four British Press Awards. Mazher Mahmood won the award for News Reporter of the Year, after reporting on corruption in the cricket world. The magazine also won for top show-biz reporter, and the news was rumoured to win Newspaper of the Year. The story made news in the UK, bringing a huge audience to the News of the World. However, not everyone agreed with Maxwell’s analysis.
A flurry of recent events has created a buzz in the international media. In the United Kingdom, the News of the World, published every Sunday, was once the world’s most popular English-language newspaper. At its closure, it had the highest circulation of any English-language newspaper. The news of the world was founded in 1891 by John Browne Bell, who identified crime as its most popular theme. In 1891, Henry Lascelles Carr purchased the News of the World from the Carr family, which sold the publication to News Limited in 1969.
