Here's brilliant graphic concept by Nicolas Kayser-Bril and Gilles Bruno , first featured on the French website L'observatoire des Medias. It's worth clicking the link to compare dailies and websites to contrast the scope of their reporting throughout a full year. The maps swell and contort according to the attention given each country, as shown in the samples below of The Australian and London's the Daily Mail. (Hat tip to Online Journalism Blog for the link.) It would be enlightening to also have a map that shows the attrition of foreign news bureaus.
