Since it began in October 1987, CNN World Report has emphasized the importance of giving viewers a perspective from around the world. Flournoy (1992) quoted Stuart Loory, CNN World Report creator as saying, "It is the philosophy of the CNN World Report that we be as inclusive as possible, rather than exclusive. That means we try to create a true marketplace of viewpoints and perspectives on the news around the world" (p.25). Other than time constraints, three minutes in the beginning, there are no rules regarding the types of reports contributors can submit to CNN World Report. The subject matter is left up the journalist. Flournoy (1992) wrote, "The World Report editor worries less about the story being one-sided than about whether there are enough sides being aired to give the audience the widest possible perspective" (p.25).
