I am looking for an online resource for the correct formatting and layout of a news release. I have found several templates, but there is enough difference between them that I'm a bit confused.

I'm looking for an international news program service that I can access online. I don't have TV, so ideally i'd like a list of videos that give me the gist of what's going on in the world, preferably from multiple sources. I'd like something like a video version of Android's pulse app, where I could choose my sources, make a playlist of stories and sit back and watch/listen. I don't mind paying for it, but I'll need it available in both the U.S. and China. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
