Chicago Tribune: "Taking Google News out for a test drive"

“It basically gives people a quick glance of what news sites around the world are determining are the top stories,” said Jonathan Dube, publisher of CyberJournalist.net, a site that explores the intersection of technology and media…. Many times, links refer to the same Reuters or Associated Press account posted by different sites. The sheer volume of links can make it harder to sort through and find a unique take, let alone the most interesting one. Dube said without the ability to sift out repeats, “right now, it’s just kind of a novelty.” … Dube said the search engine is more powerful than its competitors and probably the most useful part of the site.” — Raoul Mowatt
