World News (WN) Network is a news aggregator founded in March 1995[3] and launched online in 1998. In 2003, Search Engine Watch praised the service for its "Special Reports", and called it "an interesting alternative" to other news aggregation services.[4] The company runs other targeted websites as well.[5][1] It was featured in Forbes's "Best of the Web" in 2000, being commended for its scope, while being criticised for having many links, but "little guidance as to which are good".[5] In 2002, The Guardian's "World news guide" referenced the website.[6] It was featured in Information Today in June 2011.[1]


As of December 2013, the Quantcast rank is 241.[7]
