Global News on the Go

Summer is here, and unless you are taking the Bar exam, study or travel abroad may be in your immediate future. Take a few minutes to become familiar with two very different, but complementary, online news sources before you take off on international adventures. These can keep you in the know and up to the minute with news and culture from and about every region and major city across the globe.

World News Network brings you actual news pages from publications and blogs worldwide, gathering the news from over 500 sources in 49 languages. Organized by region, city, and topic, the site is searchable and has an archive feature making it easy to see relevant stories from any date going back to 2003. Global Post was founded in January 2009 by an American journalist and an entrepreneur with a mission to "redefine international news for the digital age." Global Post is a totally online, independent news source with its own correspondents living on every continent and dedicated to covering international news well, without partisan bias. They find newsworthy stories on topics--including cultural trends and sports--that you won't see elsewhere. When you travel abroad this summer, take WN Network and Global Post along.
