Of course, it has its problems: A 24 hour news cycle means that occasionally reporters are left reporting that there is nothing to report. A need to provide ‘balanced’ reporting means occasionally allowing lunatics to share their views alongside those of experts. They have an almost obsessive fascination with the weather.
That being said, the BBC is THE BEST NEWS SERVICE IN THE WORLD.
And the really good thing about it is that you can use it to improve your English!
It is updated 24 hours a day – http://www.bbc.com/news/video_and_audio/international
You can filter the news by region if you only want to read about Europe – http://www.bbc.com/news/world/europe
Or you can read about the whole world! – http://www.bbc.com/news/world
There’s this one about making paper from elephant poo – http://www.bbc.com/news/business-36162953
Or this one about eagles trying to steal a policeman’s kangaroo – http://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-36195819
And if you prefer the radio, the BBC World Service is exceptional – http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/bbc_world_service
You can also read about and watch short videos on sport, shopping, travel, money, culture, cars, food, future, nature, TV, music and so much more.
