What a bummer. World Press Review has stopped publishing. The foundation that was keeping it afloat said with all the other competition from other media, they were losing too much money on it. This was, as far as I know, the only magazine where you could get articles from the foreign press, across a wide political spectrum, uncut and un-interpreted to make them more palatable for an American audience. I know that, with the internet, we have more immediate access to news around the world, but you have to know where to look. Not to mention that many instituions block access to (politically or patriotically) incorrect websites. I really feel that we've lost something significant with WPR's demise.
