World news, also known as international or foreign coverage, is information about global issues, political events, and the daily lives of other people. It is the result of various media organizations’ coverage of events abroad. Some news agencies specialize in covering particular countries, while others report on a broad variety of topics. The United States is a prime example, with its many news organizations, including the BBC and the Financial Times. World news is also considered a part of the national agenda, as its government and institutions are covered.
