Created by the U.S. intelligence community to benefit policy makers and analysts, FBIS Daily Reports (1974-1996) offers foreign views and perspectives on historical events from thousands of monitored broadcasts and publications. World News Connection is the sister database that offers FBIS coverage from 1996 to present. Both sources contain fulltext English translations of news gathered from foreign radio and television broadcasts, news agency transmissions, newspapers, periodicals, and government statements. Covering more than 50 original languages – from Arabic to Swahili – these comprehensive media reports from around the globe include news, interviews, speeches and editorial commentary. Both sources are valuable research tools for anyone who needs to monitor non-U.S. media sources, either historic or current.
