This chapter begins with the development of international reporting, from the earliest days of the foreign correspondent in the Crimean War. To the rise in prominence of Cable News Network (CNN) International and Al Jazeera in each of the Gulf Wars and to the emergence of international networks such as Russia Today, CCTV and France 24. The chapter looks at the debate pitting proponents of a new 'global journalism' against those focusing on the political economy and arguing that Western power, corporate interests and liberal economics continue to hold sway over international reporting and continue to shape a 'Northern'-dominated news agenda. The chapter analyses how the culture and practice of international reporting is changing, whether 'counter-hegemonic' networks have succeeded in challenging the British Broadcasting Company-CNN view of the world, and the attempt by governments such as those of Russia and China to use broadcasting to extend their use of soft power.
