World news or international news is the generic news vocabulary for worldwide news about a specific region, an international issue or an entire country. The term has come to predominate in daily communications, with correspondents covering different countries and regions at different times. Such outlets as BBC World News, CNN, CTV International and Al Jazeera in the Arab Spring, Yahoo! World News and many others provide these services.
While some of these outlets may have had their origins in other countries, the majority of world news is produced and reported by domestic or foreign correspondents. This is usually driven by a desire to be impartial and adhere to the laws of the countries from which the correspondents are getting their news. Many foreign correspondents are college-educated and thus prefer to write about events occurring within their home countries. While there are many publications that accept submissions from all regions, these are often small and confined to certain areas such as the Middle East, for example.
There are many well established international news organizations that cater to readers from different countries. Associated Press, Al Jazeera and CNN are but a few of the world news organizations that have been in existence for decades. Other organizations that have gained significant popularity include the BBC and Associated Press (AP). These news agencies are quite dominant in their respective regions and tend to focus on a single country or region.
Many other foreign correspondents and freelance journalists work from home or from their own home office in order to make a consistent income. Many world news organizations pay competitively to their foreign correspondents, so that the best of the best and those who are particularly talented can get the positions. Many of these world news organizations have their own blogging networks, which provide additional training to its foreign correspondents in relation to blogging and writing. This has created a large new market for freelance journalism and correspondents.
Besides from Jerusalem and Tokyo, there are several other locations around the world that have been selected as host for the annual World Meeting of Families in China. For example, the city of Beijing is the perfect place to host the event as it provides an ideal backdrop to the conferences and events. The city also provides a great deal of flexibility to its foreign correspondents, as it is situated in one of the busiest cities in the world. Also, the accommodation facilities in Beijing and elsewhere in China allow for an easy travel for its foreign correspondents to cover the various important events.
Other cities that frequently feature in the world media coverage are Moscow, Islamabad and Delhi. All these cities have experienced terrorist attacks in the past and hence have a heightened risk of security related issues. For this reason, all the correspondents from these cities are required to follow certain strict security measures, such as covering all their accreditation with local authorities, ensuring they wear proper clothing and not carry any inflammable materials like lighter or matches. Additionally, a large number of journalists covering the World Conference on Families in Beijing, including CNN, CTV, Sky, Al Jazeera and a number of other international news agencies are required to follow certain rules, such as not traveling to previously unknown areas and not reporting any person who looks suspicious. As always, it is a good idea to check with your foreign correspondents before covering any particular event.
