Dear Reader,

Continental Features/Continental News Service is a national and international news-gathering organization and newspaper-feature agency which publishes the periodic 26-page, general-interest newsmagazine Continental Newstime (ISSN 1096-1712), divisible into bi-weekly sections, that is heavy on news, information, and feature content and that is currently into its 34th year. Now, CF/CNS, celebrating our 39th anniversary on August 19,2020,  specializes in covering the unreported and under-reported world and national (U.S.) news/information, through Continental Newstime 

While supplies of recent digest-size editions last, you may order a sample copy (a $4.25 value)--for mailing to a U.S. destination--just by writing us and enclosing a self-addressed 9" X 12" envelope with postage of US$1.40 affixed.  

In publishing Continental Newstime, we are influenced by market research which recommended that we examine and review government and professional studies and reports, which emphasized that readers expect investigative reports and muck-raking journalism, which revealed that readers appreciate the turn of phrase that helps in comprehension of the news, and which advised a focus on Sports.   But, then, CF/CNS' thorough discussion of public-policy matters is "an idea as old as the Republic." 

Continental Newstime newsmagazine--the "people's public-interest newspaper"sm --which doubles as our newspaper-feature catalog for U.S. and foreign newspaper editors and publishers, contains our investigative reports and a wide variety of newspaper features.  To place an order for primary advertising space in the current large-print edition, send check or money order for US$4.50.  To place a 12-month order, please prepare check or money order for US$54--Canadian and foreign orders are US$86.40 annually. [Orders include the monthly newsletter Inkslinger's Review  and, as explained on the Budget Outdoor Ad page, are advertising orders carrying an entitlement to primary advertising space and, potentially, to secondary advertising space.

    For the last 39+ years, we have published a newsletter for hospital patients--the above-mentioned Inkslinger's Review and consisting of light, informative and entertaining reading.  
    We operated a Washington, D.C.-area news bureau in 1989.  Currently, in this age of the Internet, we manage conducting operations in San Diego, California and also operate a news bureau in the Pacific Northwest.  **"With Kids' Newstime and our special news editions...  Continental News publishes a newspaper for every state, over the course of time!"sm 
    Besides, CF/CNS is available to help would-be editors and publishers launch new on-line or print newspapers for unserved or under-served areas of the U.S.​​

    *Also, for our rural friends both in the West and East, we continue to offer theCountry Neighbor Editionof Continental Newstime general-interest magazine, on the same terms as above.
