The five multimedia companies mentioned above are the world five largest sources for news regardless of the language(s) you can speak. It can be watched, heard or read by people no matter what language they speak because these companies acknowledge that knowledge of the news is everyone's right and that English is not the only means it can be communicated.

Many media companies nowadays are acknowledging that for them to reach the world, they have to communicate effectively. Without being multilingual, they will only be serving a portion of the world. And though this might be a significant portion, is still but a portion. Media organizations covering the four corners of the world, capturing the latest on wars, conflicts, economic turmoil, economic breakthrough, civil war, civil conflict and the like should be able to tell the whole world in an impartial and most accurate way the details of these events. World events cannot be covered by local news channels. Journalist for local news may not have the mobility to be in 2 different parts of the world and cover two history-making events and report these to their locality. Big media organizations are commissioned to do this. Thus, they have to be able to do so in all languages possible.
