Google News Gets It
By MortazaviBlog on May 11, 2006
While Yahoo News seems to depend on inter-corporate agreements it has with AP, Reuters and others, Google News has upped the ante by including a much wider array of sources for news items, relying not only on the usual sources for English news but also on international sources.
Take for example the case of searching for new on Iran which I just did a moment ago:
It comes back with this Guardian commentary by Simon Tisdal on "the Bush administration's rejection" of Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's letter, an AP report published by Seattle Intelligencer on a similar topic, a report on the politicization of The World Cup from South Africa, a report from Russia's RIA Novosti on finding a common language, a Xinhua report from Moscow, and another regarding military issues from RIA Novosti, and finally, a report from IRNA published in Tehran Times.
Now, that's some diversity on which Google News can capitalize on.
