Google News Blunder: the double standards
By relying on algorithms, Google News completely automated the news-gathering process. High-speed computers sift through some 7,000 sources of information -- 4,500 of them in English -- and determine which are the most relevant articles. They then grab the headline and first paragraph to post on Google's news page, with the headlines acting as external links.
It's hard to feel sorry for Google, though. In April, lawyers for the billion-dollar search engine company that Sergey Brin and Larry Page founded sent their own cease-and-desist letter to Julian Bond, a British programmer who had created customized RSS feeds from Google News.
Ironically, the letter informed Bond that Google does not permit "webmasters to display Google News headlines on their sites."
