Moving from US Internet News to a Global View

Since 2017 (when this Internet news source first started) I have noted that a large amount of the content provided kept a focus on the United States (see: a second link from for first rate insights on the impact of US media).

Here: Effective since March 2018 our American news becomes NORTH, CENTRAL and SOUTH AMERICAN Internet news! We turn the focus from Canada to Chile and beyond; per continent with a new (top of page) navigation and expanded content for users who visit using screen readers (thanks to audio and PDF files).
