New Site for World News

An interesting website devoted exclusively to world news was launched earlier this year.  Founded by Charles Sennott and Philip Balboni, two veteran Boston journalists, the mission of the GlobalPost “is to provide Americans, and all English-language readers around the world, with a depth, breadth and quality of original international reporting that has been steadily diminished in too many American newspapers and television networks.”

News stories and feature articles are written by 65 correspondents in 45 countries who offer an in-depth, “on the ground” perspective on global issues.  Recent posts on the site have included coverage of the coup in Honduras, an article on rising seas in the Netherlands, and a piece on the “ghost schools” of Pakistan.
