The future of the Chinese news agency, Xinhua, gone global

As we look at the global players in the distribution of news, read this Newsweek article (via the Daily Beast) about the future of Xinhua, the Chinese news agency that has grown apace with China. As the authors write, “In the last year alone, the 80-year-old outlet launched a 24-hour English-language news station, colonized a skyscraper in New York’s Times Square, and announced plans to expand its news-gathering operation from 120 to 200 overseas bureaus and as many as 6,000 journalists abroad.”
