The World Wide Journal is an international electronic news agency dedicated to freedom of information and impartial delivery of news, regardless of origin or nationality, to the world's view. Founded in 1956 by Franklin J. Prescott, a Canadian socialite and renown news reporter, the WWJ was created with intention of supporting and hosting world news free of government bias and political ideologies. The World Wide Journal focuses on bringing the most accurate news possible to its readers regardless of the events reported or personal biases towards the subject by writer, staff or national influence.
In the 1970s the World Wide Journal gained international recognition for its covering of various world events, such as detailing diplomatic visits and national elections down to following claims of corruption against members of foreign governments. Most famously the news outlet covered a majority of the 1970 and 1980s political divides inside of Europe as well as criticizing numerous other international feuds. Beginning in 1977 the company began to expand past its previous headquarters of Toronto and became a prominent news authority for all of North America; and expanded its offices into most of Western Europe and by 1985 almost every nation on the continent has some form of office or related business. The World Wide Journal also expanded its global reach further to Aeuria in the late 1980s, opening new branches of the news agencies dedicated to handling local and national news with on-the-spot access and establishing a televised news station in certain countries. While the World Wide Journal publishes a number of local events and reports on most happenings of each nation, the main headquarters only hosts international or nationally important news.
In 1998 the World Wide Journal was corporately restructured following the start of the current CEO, Verney Levasseur, and the news agency faced issues combating other local influential news companies as well as struggling to remain true to their mission statement of truthful news free of national influence. In order to continue the famous reputation of the company, the World Wide Journal closed the majority of their printing locations around the world as well as downsizing several of their major business locations in a risky financial move that allowed the news agency to relocate most of their services to the growing internet. The move eventually paid off as the internet grew in popularity and the World Wide Journal remained a company free of most national influence and regulation, allowing the various business locations and reporters of the WWJ to print and keep up-to-date information available on their websites.
Any country with internet access can now enjoy the services presented by the company without issue; the World Wide Journal having developed into an applauded internationally present news agency supported by teams of multinational writers and reporters based around the world, with the rapid ability of bringing the issues of nations to the eyes of the world free of censorship and local bias.
