quoting Hoover Institutionvia The Washington Post
Saturday, September 7, 2019

Monday, September 9, 2019

As most long-standing news outlets have shuttered their foreign bureaus and print operations, the role of Global News Networks (GNNs) as information collectors and policy influencers has changed.
