Global Voices: News

Tuesday morning our group went to a newspaper stand to pick up a few different newspapers from different parts of the world. Our goal was to see the differences of what they were focusing on. Because different people in our group speak many different languages we were able to get newspapers in Italian, French, Spanish, English and Arabic although no one in the group speaks Arabic we were still able to compare cover stories and pictures. What we found was that most Newspapers covered either Japan (English French and British) or Libya (Italian and Arabic). We concluded that because stories like Japan and Libya are current and important, most newspapers were covering their stories. However the Arabic newspaper focused more on Libya which is part of the Arab world.
