Somewhere, Johnny Cash is smiling

Veteran journalist Charles Sennott appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe today to promote GlobalPost, which strives to be a less expensive alternative source for global news coverage (compared to the more comprehensive Associated Press). Sennott mentioned that every correspondent for GlobalPost will carry a Flip camcorder. This video report by Greg Warner shows how well the concept can work.

Religion is not an obvious presence on the newly launched GlobalPost. Considering that the service will rely largely on correspondents who live where they work, and that religion is such a pervasive force in so many nations, spiritual matters are likely to show up with some frequency.

Meanwhile, do treat yourself to this example of how the work of Christ-haunted Johnny Cash (and his wife, June Carter Cash, who wrote the lyrics) crosses considerable cultural boundaries.
