Coverage of World News by Foreign correspondents
World news or world media or international news is the popular news language for worldwide news on a global basis, usually about a particular country or an international topic. It covers all the major areas like politics, business, sports, science and health. The most famous bureaus reporting world news is the Associated Press (AP), CNN, BBC, CTV, Sky News and the Wall Street Journal. There are many other minor or lesser known news agencies but they too have their own strengths. But it must be kept in mind that the most authentic news is not always based on any of the mentioned sources.
Many foreign correspondents, especially in the major news agencies are highly qualified and skilled journalists who have years of experience in the field of journalism. They are recruited by these news agencies as they possess the necessary qualities of a good journalist. Some of the qualities required in a good journalist are professionalism, objectivity, experience, quick thinking, knowledge of the language used in the country they are reporting and familiarity with the society and culture of the country. Since these are a hard task to attain, the foreign correspondents get many opportunities and benefits as well.
For a news agency to succeed in the field of journalism, it needs to be very well aware of the complexities of the changing technologies. This is the reason why many of them have their news desks based in different countries where the technology has been developing rapidly. Many news agencies also offer online news services that give a dynamic platform to their correspondents to deliver the latest updates, reports and events. This makes their job even easier.
One of the major advantages of the internet is that it provides easy access to millions of people all over the world. This has made the competition between various news organizations and world news organizations increasing and globalization has increased the speed of globalization. With more people getting involved in global business, this makes the competition tougher for international news organizations who try to provide timely and accurate reports to their readers.
In China, where most people use the internet, the Beijing Evening Press and CCTV news agencies have received tremendous popularity among the Chinese-speaking audience. A number of foreign correspondents have set up their own websites in China to cater to the ever-growing demands of their customers. They employ local talents to carry out the reporting task. The bureau also ensures that they carry out a balanced reporting by covering both the domestic and the international scenario. This bureau has won numerous awards, especially the ones for excellence in television and online broadcasting.
There are other major cities in which news organizations prefer to base their operations including Islamabad in Pakistan and Kashtan in Afghanistan. All these cities have a thriving online industry as well as flourishing traditional industries catering to the needs of the media professionals. In addition, there are a few other cities in India, such as Delhi, where the services provided by news agencies are also recognized with accolades. Most of the Indian news agencies are owned by foreigners who travel to the country on a regular basis and take time out to report on the state of the economy, various national and international issues, and various lifestyle trends.
