Several News Services cover varies areas. Inside the Imperium,
the Traveller News
Service (TNS) holds a virtual monopoly; while local papers cover small
areas, the TNS is by far the most reliable and most widespread newswire.
newswire system is run by the government, and thus is often considered
propaganda by citizens from elsewhere. In Foreven sector, a veterans'
network -- known locally as the Yonder Veterans Network -- performs a similar
function to the TNS, although obviously on a much smaller scale; like the
TNS, the YVN is an independent organization that can generally be relied
on to present unbiased reports.
These entries are available in the Imperium and in many surrounding
systems; propagation time may restrict the availability of entries, as
they are distributed through the Xboat network.
Note: These entries are generally only available in Foreven Sector;
players should refrain from referencing them unless their character currently
has them available through some agency, such as a local YVN branch or civilian
or military computer network. Unfiltered YVN information is not available
everywhere in Foreven, though.
