Politics: press and news

Today, the world revolves around politics. When we speak of politics, we refer to the relations between states and their citizens and the power relations between states. Being up to date on the latest news in politics is relatively easy due to the fact that media from around the world, both specialist and generalist, allow us to have up-to-the-minute news of everything that is happening. Furthermore, we can also follow current political news through each country's most representative official bodies. Lastly, for the particularly incisive of us, current politics are also a subject of analysis and criticism, which explains the recent boom in political opinion and analysis sites.
