Global Post, a completely web-based international news source, launched a new beat today featuring writing from students abroad. I was selected earlier this fall as one of their student correspondents. This is the reason there hasn’t been much writing on the blog besides the Friday find. Last month, I submitted most of my writing to GP. Now that they are launching, you will be seeing more articles from me that will be published in Global Post’s year abroad section first.
As major newspapers struggle to sustain international bureaus across the world, GP uses a small group of professional reporters around the world to cover global events. They are the first international news source to rely solely on the internet as their delivery, a characteristic that helps keep their operating costs way down. If you are interested in finding another credible source for international news, definitely check out Global Post whose link is provided under “Turkish News Sources.” The media landscape continues to change, and all of us with it. However, the search for truth in the world never changes, and never ends.
