Even news junkies might not know about all the global news they're missing. GlobalPost is here to change that. Founded by two media veterans, this site aims to "redefine international news for the digital age ... relying on the enduring values of great journalism: integrity, accuracy, independence and powerful storytelling." They've assembled a staff of journalists living in the 53 countries they report on. And special attention is given to geographic areas that Americans so often hear almost nothing about. The site is rich with multimedia and offers an easily browsable context for today's important world stories.
You'll find important, fascinating stories here -- dip in to the site as you have time, and share what you find.
