One of our many optional services is gathering national and world news for the web sites.  We search the major news sources and extract the hottest stories for easy reading and reference with a direct link to the source.  We post news twice a day, seven days a week.  The "Early Edition" is posted just before 10pm and the final edition is posted 6am central time each day.  Special reports and emergency news stories are posted as they unfold (such as the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks). 

     Finding and uploading the news twice a day is a 24/7 process.  The optional "VOA View" adds spice and fun reading to the stories, even to those who do not share the exact same view or philosophy on every issue.  We have an optional "Daily Commentary" (Monday-Friday).  Our Commentary Archives date back to July, 1998.

     Check,,, your local newspaper's site, or other such sites -- verify for yourself the fact that we have the most comprehensive and up to date news than any other news and information portal.  Many news sources omit certain stories because of agendas, political correctness and bias.
