This page is made to enable you to get instant access to information about international and national issues from news sources with various, many-sided perspectives - for a quick overview of what's going on. But be careful not to read the news only to feed your own opinion.

On this page you will find a selection of links to the world's major Newspapers, News Services and Broadcasters with high level standards -- international recognized and observed by millions of people around the world.

They all are mostly independent and unbiased and provide fast, up-to-date, comprehensive, mostly objective, and reliable news - and they all are fed with the "products" by a handful of News Agencies (big4), as well independent and unbiased (hopefully) -- the rest is journalistic craft and your critical perception.

To get local news from around the World use this List of Countries. On every country page is a News section, with links to the newspapers of the country.
