First of all because I am a journalist
I build this site as a tool in my daily work. The work started in 2004. I had been searching for a worldwide media database many times, while working on stories. I found some but most projects alike have not kept their focus on general news, politics, economics etc. but unfortunately included news sources of low quality, spamsites and sites with very specialized media. And what is worst, the links have been broken or the URLs have been hard to remember.
I simply want to do that better to provide you easy access to major national and daily updated news sources from all over the world, whether you are journalist, researcher, online media designer, concerned traveler or student.
