I have added a link under "More News Organizations" for Global Post, the organization for which James Foley works. Foley and his recent release from captivity in Libya was mentioned earlier this week.
Global Post, which began in 2009, is taking up the work that has been left undone because of the decrease in foreign news coverage by the American media. It seeks to be the only internet journalism site solely devoted to international news.
Global Post has reported from 130 nations and has readers around the world. While the site is open to everyone, their business plan also includes providing special benefits for those who pay a monthly fee to become members. Members can take part in conference calls with journalists working overseas, propose story ideas, and give input about which stories need to be covered.
It looks like Global Post can be a great resource for the journalism students of Mount Angel Seminary. While our work focuses on our local events here at the seminary, the class can also be an opportunity to learn more about global coverage.
If you would like to receive updates about our coverage of the seminary, subscribe to our blog by clicking on the link in the right hand corner of the blog. Pax!
