International News Sources vs. International News

WARNING! It is very easy to confuse a story from a reputable American source about an international situation as an appropriate for this assignment.

The New York Times, the Times of London, Washington Post, and other western news sources have exceptional coverage of international content; but they are not writing from the perspective of that international community.

Use these sources as the foundation for finding locations, names, historical records and more, but do not use them as your primary article.
