In the news

News outlets, personal opinions and reports on World news,
both single individuals and blog aggregats

Global Voices aggregates, curates, and amplifies the global conversation online - shining light on places and people other media often ignore. Comes in 10+ languages :o)

[guardian.co.uk]

The Guardian is a British newspaper, and the web page has won a couple of awards. The page is a collaboration between The Guardian and The Observer. It praises itself to be politically independent, and was published first time as the Manchester Guardian in 1821. The Observer is published since 1791, stating that it would share "the spirit of enlightened Freedom, decent Toleration and universal Benevolence."

[Japan Probe]

Your daily dose of Japan, without the "Kawaii, desu".

Our journalists provide what many people in those countries cannot get locally: uncensored news, responsible discussion, and open debate. You may also read their [Mission statement] I read it for the wider outlook.

[Thomson Reuters]

The World's largest international news service, as they say on their own page. You decide, whether it is also is the best. Reuters has merged with the Thomson Corporation, which provides, amongst a lot of others, scientific search databases such as ISI Web of Knowledge.
Largely acclaimed for their professionalism and integrity.
