Google Brings News With the Quickness

| Posted: Sep 25, 2002 2:50 am

In a much appreciated move, search engine heavyweight Google.com brings us an extremely useful and powerful tool. News.Google.com. This bad boy continuously searches over 4,000 sites in an attempt to bring the world up-to-date news in one convenient location. Since I've found out about it, I've used it many times to bring you breaking news. Why haven't I posted this earlier? I was using it too much!

 

Google News is highly unusual in that it offers a news service compiled solely by computer algorithms without human intervention. Google employs no editors, managing editors, or executive editors. While the sources of the news vary in perspective and editorial approach, their selection for inclusion is done without regard to political viewpoint or ideology. While this may lead to some occasionally unusual and contradictory groupings, it is exactly this variety that makes Google News a valuable source of information on the important issues of the day.
Try it for yourself @ news.google.com.
