World News Digest

world news

World news is a specialization for journalists, although in many countries, particularly in the United States, there is often no clear distinction between world news and national news (news that affects the citizens of a particular country). Typically, a reporter who specializes in world news covers a region, a nation or sometimes an entire continent. The correspondent gathers information for his or her stories from local officials and members of the community, local media, and events that he or she directly witnesses. The main subfields of world news are conflict journalism (which often includes war reporting) and diplomacy.
