Reuters today announced an alliance with Global Voices Online, an international network of bloggers coordinated through the Berkman Center at Harvard University.
“The alliance with Global Voices enables Reuters to present a wider set of voices and commentary from around the world,” said Dean Wright, Reuters global managing editor for consumer services, in a statement.
Rebecca MacKinnon, co-founder of Global Voices, added: “We believe that bloggers and journalists share a common goal of informing an engaged global citizenry.”
Reuters — which will make Global Voices content available through Reuters.com and Reuters.co.uk. — made a contribution to the Berkman Center that enabled Global Voices to hire a full-time managing editor, begin enhancing its infrastructure, and do more outreach, training, and publicity.
